The Chris & Pop-Pop Show: Phillies’ Horrid Spring Training, Eagles Sign Malcolm Jenkins

The Chris & Pop-Pop Show returns for a second season on with its new-school and old-school approach on happenings surrounding all of the Philadelphia sports teams.

This week, Chris and Pop-Pop discuss the Phillies’ horrid Spring Training start; how worried should their fans be as the regular season nears? Pop-Pop believes the Phillies are holding important information about Cole Hamels’ “tired” shoulder and how injured he truly may be. Afterwards, Chris talks about Ryne Sandberg not being worried about his club’s terrible record and lack of offensive production. Also, what does Larry Bowa think of Jimmy Rollins and his leadership role? Chris also rants about how the Phillies could end up embarrassing themselves by the time the MLB trade deadline hits.

Lastly, the twosome talk about the Eagles signing safety Malcolm Jenkins, formerly of the New Orleans Saints. Who’s next on Chip Kelly and Howie Roseman’s list? Does this move put the Eagles that much closer to contending for a Super Bowl?
