Hey friends, it’s opening day for my beloved Fightin’ Phialdelphia Phillies and we are going to take a quick break from fantasy to talk about a new podcast effort that I am super excited to bring to you — Phils in Five. As the Phillies embark on a their quest to make it back to the post season for the first time in a decade, I’m going to give you a inside look at what it like to root for a team that has LITERALLY lost more games than any single sporting franchise in the history of mankind.
The Phils actually went out and spent some cash this year so expectations are obviously and rationally very, very, very high for this team. Will they exceed all expectations? Is it safe to park in the Citizens Bank Park lot with all those baseball’s raining down?Will they break their own record for blown saves in a season? Will I run out of beer before the end of the weekend?
All those questions and maybe even some more will be answered on new episodes coming on a somewhat daily basis. Regular schedules are cool and all, but I live with a baby so you get what you get.
Anyway, here’s the first episode give it a listen and find it (eventually) wherever you get your podcasts!
