The Chris & Pop-Pop Show: Status of AJ Burnett, Steve Mason Updates, Biggest Villain in Philadelphia Sports

This week on The Chris & Pop-Pop Show:

Phillies: What’s the status of AJ Burnett and how does his injury effect the rest of the pitching rotation moving forward? Is Cole Hamels’ scheduled April 22 return just what the doctor ordered? What’s a bigger problem right now: the rotation or the bullpen?

Eagles: Since Desean Jackson is now gone, are the Birds still looking at a WR in the first round? Pop-Pop doesn’t think so and he explains why. Reports last week had the Eagles interested in the Bills’ CJ Spiller just prior to getting Darren Sproles. What would that have meant for Lesean McCoy?

Flyers: Playoffs kick off this week, and the orange and black kick things off against their biggest rival – the New York Rangers. Chris has updates on Steve Mason and makes his series prediction.

Discussion: Who’s the biggest villain in Philadelphia Sports? This question got heated on Chris’ Facebook page and he runs down the names and explanations of some of them.
