Pat and Corey are back this week with their unique perspective on Phillies baseball. They make a case for Dom Brown starting the All-Star game, preview the Phillies current road trip (and why now is the time to bury the Nationals), plus figure out what’s going on with Mike Adams. Ryann relays some of the best fan questions of the week, like when is the right time to promote Darin Ruf and should the Phils trade Cliff Lee (gasp!)?
Corey sits down with Sean Forman, founder and president of the “cathedral of baseball statistics” Baseball-Reference.com. They discuss the origins of the web site, the usefulness of the Play Index tool and how Chase Utley is an underrated player.
Then Ian is shown the ropes – both literally and figuratively – by pro wrestler and South Philly native, The Blue Meanie.
