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)

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).
