Pod: The Phillies: A Sticky Situation

This week, the guys talk about a bonkers day at Euro 2020 before John tries to get revenge for the PBR Hard Coffee taste test. After saluting one of their favorite television personalities, the Frenetics dig into MLB’s sticky situation before talking about that of the Phillies in particular.

The rundown:

• John confesses to watching the teeniest little bit of Euro 2020, giving Joe a window to talk about the tournament

• A new What Are You Drinking?™ taste test, where John offers one of his favorite hard seltzers to a skeptical Joe (6:56)

• The guys salute mutual favorite Conan O’Brien, whose late night show has come to an end (10:40); you can check out the sketch they’re talking about on YouTube (with the mild correction that it’s from 2004, not the mid-90s)

• A masterful segue leads into a discussion of the current foreign substance scandal in baseball (15:06), which of course would not be complete without a disagreement over who looked worse in the Joe Girardi-Max Scherzer bravado-off; in the end, however, the true loser was neither one of them (24:21)

• John brings a pair of Twitter Feuds of the Week to the table (30:45)

• John then asks for Joe’s thoughts on a potential managerial candidate for the Phillies (38:04) before putting him on the hot seat for some rapid-fire “Should They Trade Him?” questions (46:07)

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).
