Anthony opens the show reacting to a story Bob shared on the morning show in reference to a former colleague asking for contact info of another person and not getting permission to talk to that person. Then Anthony reacts to the Phillies blowout win over the Diamondbacks, but his excitement gets overshadowed when Andrew tells Anthony that many fans are not on board with the song coming back (0:30-15:45). Anthony is stunned about the fact that so many people dislike the Phillies bringing back Dancing on my own and correlates the hate to the frustration of only winning 2 championships in the last 40 years (15:45-35:22). Anthony takes a call from a fan who went to Oakland last night to make their stand against ownership, and Choonis opens the Vault to relive Championship victories on this day in back-to-back seasons, Ryne Sandberg quitting on the Cubs and Phillies and a Phillies throwback (35:22-59:55). Matt Breen of the Philly Inquirer joins the show to discuss the landscape of Philly Sports, and dives into the big topic of the Phillies bringing the song back and finding their winning ways, what to do with the 5th starter spot with the likes of Griff McGarry and Mick Abel in the minors and Andrew Painter working his way back from injury and Matt also dives into the comments Doc Rivers made about James Harden and Joel Embiid on the Bill Simmons podcast (59:55-1:21:05). The guys react to a report by Brian Windhorst that if a trade for Bradley Beal happens between now and next Thursday, observers will be “very surprised” by how little a Beal trade nets the Wizards if they trade him before next week’s NBA draft. The main reason for that is Beal’s robust contract, as he signed a five-year, $251.0 million supermax extension last year, which included a no-trade clause, and Anthony opens the phone lines to get your feelings and where you stand with the song (1:21:05-1:45:32). Andrew shares a story with Anthony about a San Francisco Giants pitching prospect Keaton Winn when he got called up to the big-league club it was his first time stepping into a major league ballpark. (1:45:32-2:06:07). Andrew shares a wacky story with Anthony about a Belgium man faking his own death and his wife was in on it to teach people in his life a lesson because he didn’t like how he was being treated. Anthony counters with a story about 76-year-old women from Ecuador who was presumed to be dead but astonished relatives when she started knocking on her coffin. News breaks simultaneously from Adrian Wojnarowski and Shams Charania that Bradley Beal and Washington Wizards are working together to get a trade worked out (2:06:07-2:29:00). On the heels of the Bradley Beal news, Anthony runs through the odds of likely landing spots for Lebron James, Damian Lillard, James Harden, Kyrie Irving and more. Anthony takes a few more of your calls to close out the with your feelings on the Phillies bringing the song back and a possible trade to land Bradley Beal (2:29:00-2:57:49).
