Sign us up for a decade of this, please.

Usually, big news drops right after the guys record a new pod, but this time, the news broke beforehand: Trea Turner is coming to Philadelphia.

The guys discuss Turner’s potential impact on the Phillies’ lineup and the National League East before talking about Sunday’s big Eagles win over Tennessee and how Jalen Hurts should be the NFL MVP favorite.

The rundown:

• In case you missed it, arguably the top free agent shortstop in baseball is coming to Philadelphia as the Phillies and Trea Turner have agreed on an 11-year, $300 million contract. That’s probably worth some discussion.

• The guys discuss how much the signing closes the gap between the Phillies and Atlanta and New York atop the NL East before bandying about some more potential moves the team could make (21:38)

• The Eagles routed the Titans, 35-10, to move to 11-1 on the season; there were a lot of things to like and one thing not to like (31:38)

• The guys heap praise on Jalen Hurts and declare him the right and true favorite for the NFL MVP award (38:13)

• Joe allows John to bask in the glory of what is almost certain to be a season-long victory in Quick Picks (45:22)
