The rundown:

• Joe has joined the ranks of the partially vaccinated

• John was so angered by the Phillies’ loss on Sunday night that he balled up The News and tossed it out, so Joe steps in (5:21)

• The guys welcome Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs play-by-play man Pat McCarthy to join them for a beverage… (7:50)

• …and to discuss the Eagles’ – hold on, is this right? – successful draft? Really? Really! (10:04)

• Then, in honor of the start of the minor league season – the first minor league games since September of 2019 – the guys get Pat’s thoughts on what fans can expect down on the farm this year (30:23)

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).
