The Chris & Pop-Pop Show: Phillies’ Opening Day Win, Dissecting Desean Jackson’s Release

On this week’s edition of The Chris & Pop-Pop Show, Pop-Pop is back from vacation, and the Phillies and Eagles are heavily discussed throughout.

First, the Phillies won their opening day contest by the score of 14-10. Who and what led to the 14 runs, and how on Earth did Cliff Lee surrender eight of the Rangers’ 10 scores? What does this kick-starter say about the often-criticized Phillies offense? Should the fans be worried about the pitching depth?

Later, Chris & Pop-Pop dissect the Desean Jackson release and the Eagles’ current situation. What were the real reasons Chip Kelly wanted nothing to do with Jackson moving forward?

Then, the duo answer baseball questions related to the contracts given to Mike Trout and Miguel Cabrera, the new collision rule in MLB and their new Join Drug rules. Also, what are the expectations of the Phillies now that the first game is out of the way?
