The Chris & Pop-Pop Show: Mark Cuban’s NFL Comments, Should Phillies Consider Max Scherzer?

On this week’s Chris & Pop-Pop ShowJason Kent fills in for the vacationing Pop-Pop. Chris and Jason talk/argue about Mark Cuban’s comments regarding the National Football League and its future in the thick of Americana. Also, Desean Jackson has spoken with Chip Kelly, and apparently, all is well in Eagle-land.

The Phillies are just days away from opening the 2014 season in Texas against the Rangers. The guys go over what’s right and what’s wrong with the team. They also discuss the Phillies’ strengths, weaknesses, and what they need to do to be a surprise-team in the playoff hunt come October. Also, Detroit’s Max Scherzer has ended extension talks with the Tigers, and it seems like Scherzer will hit the open market. Would it be wise for the Phils to take a run at this ace and former CY Young winner? Apparently, he was offered a contract that would’ve put him in the top echelon of MLB pitchers in terms of average dollar amount per season (a Cole Hamels-like offer).

Chris also brings up the issue the Eagles will face after the 2014 season, in terms of their roster and salary cap. Who will become a “cap casualty”? How much do the guys believe Nick Foles will get paid after this upcoming season?
