(00:00-13:45) On today’s best of The Afternoon Show, the word of the day is ‘shallow’. Tyrone starts the show by playing JT Realmuto’s comments regarding not getting vaccinated but more than that referring to the money he will lose as ‘a little bit of money’. Tyrone believes the comments were stupid and disconnects himself from the fans that are hearing his comments. A little bit of money is years of money to the majority of the people listening. Jen and Tom give their thoughts. Tyrone also introduces the side topic today. What concerts are on your bucket list?
(13:52-24:32) Jen introduces today’s Twitter poll. Do you have a problem with JT Realmuto saying $262,000 was “a little bit of money” to the fans last night? Your options are Yes-Comes Off Shallow and No-Can Say What He Wants. The answer ‘Yes’ has the slight edge early on. Tyrone and the crew give their thoughts and talk more about the JT Realmuto comments.
(24:39-40:28) Jen gives a Twitter update and Phillies reporter for The Philadelphia Inquirer Scott Lauber joins the show to talk about last night’s loss to the Cardinals and Aaron Nola’s struggles during part of the game. He also talks about the vaccination situation and the upcoming series in Toronto, the Phillies with another bullpen game, pressure on Wheeler and more.
