Pod: Cardinals Ruled: The Phillies and Eagles Get Big Wins While the Union Top the East

Two happy pods in a row? Believe it!

The Phillies swept the St. Louis Cardinals to advance to the National League Division Series and the Eagles got past the Arizona Cardinals to move to 5-0 on the season. On top of all that, the Union clinched the top spot in the Eastern Conference for the MLS Cup Playoffs. Not a bad weekend for Philadelphia.

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).
