– A “Where Are They Now?” Update on Former Phillies like Jimmy RollinsDomonic Brown, and Cliff Lee.

– Ian gloats at he and Steve’s accurate predictions.

– Ian and Steve chat about the Spring Training Opener against the University of Tampa and somehow avoid mentioning their expansive pro wrestling alumni that include Paul Orndorff and Dick Slater! They talk about standouts, which included Odubel Herrera and Angelys Nina.

– The guys talk about Ryan Howard. Has he become a villain or should he be applauded?

– The 2016 Spring Training preview continues with a position by position breakdown with an in-depth look at Cesar Hernandez, Freddy Galvis, Maikel Franco, Darin Ruf, Nina, Ryan Jackson, Andres Blanco, Tyler Featherstom, and more!

– And finally, Steve and Ian tackle the age-old question – what is going on with Cody Asche and where does he fit moving forward? – before moving on to some Vegas-themed Over/Unders! Write these down to hold Ian and Steve to them and send in your thoughts!

– Last week’s trivia question answer and this week’s trivia question for a great prize!
