The rundown:

• The guys discuss The Oscars’ homage to their episode about weird endings, and then talk about the last movie they each saw in a theater; coincidentally, it was the same one

• John Reads The News™ (6:28)

• Easily the lamest “What Are You Drinking?” segment human beings have ever recorded (7:58); to be fair, last week’s was pretty intense for one of the two of them

• Joe gives an epilogue to his soliloquy on the European Super League; he comes to bury it, not to eulogize it (8:31)

• Oduble Herrera is back with the Phillies, and the guys share their conflicted feelings about it (10:59)

• John drags Joe kicking and screaming into a discussion of this week’s NFL Draft and what they hope to see from the Eagles; John also offers the team some insightful advice: “draft more SEC guys” (23:25)

• After the Dodgers and Padres wrapped up a great weekend series out west, the guys talk about the best rivalries in sports (36:41) before deciding on the biggest rival of each of the local teams (47:05), as well as which teams they personally find the most loathsome

Trea Turner is (Going to Be) a Phillie; Jalen Hurts Should Be the NFL MVP Favorite The Philly Frenetics Podcast

The Phillies agreed to a massive contract with free agent shortstop Trea Turner on Monday, which was perfect timing for the guys to discuss the deal and Turner's potential impact on the roster (5:59), what the lineup looks like in 2023 (16:58), and whether the signing closes the gap on the Braves and Mets (21:38).  Then, after the Eagles topped the Titans on Sunday (31:38), Jalen Hurts gets his due – at least on this pod – as the favorite to win the NFL MVP award (38:13).
