Among the topics discussed include a historically bad bullpen, Alec Bohm's debut, and what/who to blame for so many individual struggles. Also, the two discuss J.T.

Makes me a better fan!

This is my favorite sports podcast. Anthony and Bob cover a wide range of topics about the Phillies and go into depth on the issues surrounding the team, its players and their stats, the coaches and management, and the wider sport. And they do so with a great deal of knowledge, enthusiasm and good humor. They don’t pull punches and they are both strongly opinionated (and yes, like most Phils fans, they can get grouchy when the team underperforms). But their passion for baseball is contagious. I love this show!

The Best Phillies Pod

This is the best Phillies podcast out there. The key to its success is balance. Bob and Anthony are humble true Philly guys who are homers, but will never be accused of unbridled optimism. The younger Bob has your analytics and every day beat coverage while seasoned sports journalist Anthony provides historical perspective and just enough old-man-yells-at-cloud to even things out. The coverage is comprehensive and the takes are measured... unless Russ fills in. Keep up the great work, guys.

Most real Phillies talk out there

Bob and Anthony have a no holds barred approach to baseball and the Phillies - and they are completely fair about it too. If someone is playing well, they’ll praise them. If not, they’ll scorch them. And they are also the perfect blend of new school, data-driven analysis and the old school gut instinct. They make you think about the Phillies and it’s an easy, enjoyable conversation. You’ll like it too.
