In the episode:

• Joe compares himself to a certain resourceful television character right in the intro

• John Reads The News™ in large part out of disgust at Joe’s comparison (3:42)

• A What Are You Drinking?™ that is not the only time Joe borrows someone else’s idea in the episode; this week, the pod’s resident iced tea connoisseur does his own John-style taste test of Truly’s Lemon Tea Hard Seltzer (5:48)

• The guys are not pessimistic about the Phillies’ start to the season, knowing full well that it’s just three games (8:16); plus, a discussion of which players might be the potential X-factor for this year’s team (20:13)

• A look at the best and funniest things the guys have seen this year (33:38), including Joe explaining an Opening Day scoring decision (you probably know which one) and then showing no regard for the good of the global shipping industry with his “funniest thing of the year” (you definitely know which one)

• John announces the winner of his Chase Utley bobblehead giveaway; congratulations to…well, you’ll just have to listen! (48:32)

Joe Girardi is Fired; The Phillies Catch Fire The Philly Frenetics Podcast

Anything happen while we were gone? The guys return after a brief hiatus to discuss John's new digs and Joe's attendance at three notable baseball games in the span of four days before getting into the topic of the day: should the Phillies have fired Joe Girardi? (11:37)  And since they did, was it at the right time, and will it matter at all? (22:19)  Joe then shares his thoughts on what the team should be looking for in a new manager while John is, suffice to say, significantly less picky (31:15).
