This week on Faceoff with Chris, Chris and Pop-Pop have Rickie Ricardo on the show to talk about the Phillies and what we can expect this season. Ricardo, who is the play-by-play announcer for the Phillies in Spanish, gave his opinion on an array of topics from Clearwater, Fla. Ricardo is as straight forward as they come – he showed quality optimism, yet found ways to warn people that the bottom can fall out quicker than expected. Ricardo’s perspective is a must-hear, right here on Faceoff with Chris.
After Ricardo’s interview, Chris and Pop-Pop talk about the Phillies’ CEO David Montgomery’s interview with MLB.com. What are Montgomery’s expectations for his club this season and how will the new TV deal effect the franchise moving forward? Lastly, Carlos Ruiz is now allowed to take Adderall during the season. How will this affect him after a rough 2013 season? And why doesn’t Jimmy Rollins want to waive his no-trade clause?
