The rundown:

• Pat talks about his year, including Bryce Harper’s cameo at Lehigh Valley and heading to Houston with the Phillies at the end of the regular season

• A celebratory – and in one case, a pre-celebratory – “What Are You Drinking?” brought to you by truth in labeling (3:23)

• Pat shares his experience with the Phillies when they clinched their postseason berth in Houston (5:22)

• As the rest of the region sat riveted to Game 5 on Sunday, Pat has a different tale to tell (13:55)

• The broadcast calls of Harper’s series-clinching home run are as memorable as the hit itself (18:06)

• The guys discuss just what the Phillies need to do to beat the Astros, and it starts, of course, with Aaron Nola, Zack Wheeler, and the pitching staff (23:10)

• The Phillies’ offense is clicking as well as it has all year at just the right time (31:14)

• A brief discussion on what the Astros need to do to win; spoiler alert: be the Astros (38:21)

• Aside from Harper, who are the potential X-factors over the next week and a half? (40:46)

• Finally, the trio offers some bold predictions for the World Series; well, two bold predictions and one opposite-of-bold prediction (44:58)
