Pod: Are the Phillies Buyers or Sellers at the Trade Deadline?

This week, the guys delve into Philadelphia’s biggest sports question of the week: buy or sell? The MLB trade deadline is upon us, and, if you can believe it, the Frenetics have thoughts.

The rundown:

• Joe asks John what he’s been up to as a shameless way to plug what he’s been up to, which is broadcasting games for the Delco League

• This week’s What Are You Drinking?™ taste test once again features a canned cocktail from Cardinal Spirits; suffice to say that the Bourbon Cream Soda earned higher marks than its predecessor (4:22)

• A simple question with no simple answer: should the Phillies buy or sell? John summarizes his article declaring the 2021 season dead in the water, while Joe cross examines him as if he were auditioning for a revival of “Franklin and Bash.” Then it’s Joe’s turn, and he manages to somehow argue that they should essentially do neither (10:35). Come for the insight and debate; stay for John saying the Phillies should ship out Andrew McCutchen and that Monday’s game was already over just about an hour before McCutchen won it.

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).
