The Philadelphia Union have reached the MLS Eastern Conference Final for the first time in club history, and Joe was in the building on Sunday as the local XI dispatched Nashville SC. The guys discuss that match, plus the slightly less thrilling result from another football game in North Jersey earlier the same day.

The rundown:

• Joe had jury duty on Monday, and, as per usual, it comes with a story

• A take-no-prisoners edition of What Are You Drinking?™ featuring a call-out of a local media outlet for its ignorance of Philadelphia’s best professional sports team… (8:27)

• …that’s right, it’s the Philadelphia Union, en route to the Eastern Conference Final after a penalty shootout victory over Nashville SC on Sunday (9:40); Joe talks about experiencing the match in person before discussing the “top three non-‘games where trophies were given to Philadelphia teams'” he’s attended and John misunderstands the assignment

• Of course, the Eagles’ embarrassing performance cannot be ignored as the guys discuss who is to blame, Joe makes an observation about the team’s last four coaches, and the guys debate which Jalen had a worse day (33:09)

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).
