The Chris & Pop-Pop Show: Phillies First Six Games, Flyers Playoff Season Update

This week: The Phillies closed out the first week of 2014 at .500. How do Chris and Pop-Pop feel the first six games fared for the Fightin’ Phils? Positives and negatives are discussed and broken down. How can manager Ryne Sandberg fix his bullpen issue?

Next, Chris runs through a Flyers update, as the team approaches the playoff season in week or so from today. Chris and Pop-Pop also break down the three main reasons why the Eagles made the right decision in releasing Desean Jackson, and if Chip Kelly is smart enough to pick one or two guys in the draft to compensate for the loss of Jackson.

To finish, Chris whips out an article written by Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports discussing the debate on whether or not the MLB players of today actually deserve more money because of how filthy rich the owners are. It’s a fun discussion between old school and new school mentalities.
