Pod: The NBA Offseason Begins, and the Phillies Are in the Hunt

What is going on in Camden?

The dog days of summer mean the focus of the sports world is on two things: baseball and NBA free agency.

This week, it’s Phillies talk followed by a rumination on the opening flurry of moves across the NBA, including a chat about what the Sixers have done and what they could do.

The rundown:

• John talks about his recent eye surgery while Joe waxes nostalgic about a football league that folded when he was two

• Joe expects entirely too much out of a spiked seltzer before somehow talking even more about the USFL in this week’s “What Are You Drinking?” (12:19)

• The Phillies have continued to play competent baseball for the most part; the guys talk about last weekend’s series against the Cardinals, the veracity of Nolan Arenado’s cycle, and whether it was appropriate for the team to honor Albert Pujols (14:44)

• NBA free agency is underway; the guys talk about the Brian Windhorst meme-inducing Rudy Gobert trade as well as Kevin Durant (31:39)

• Speaking of, should the Sixers go after KD? Plus, the moves they’ve already been reported to be making (37:01)

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).
