What we're throwing down on the Table this week is an in-depth discussion and interview with Liz Roscher from Yahoo Sports and the Continued Success podcast reflecting upon the 2021 Phillies season. We only saw a couple gems this season in Bryce Harper and Zack Wheeler. Why are we continuing to see mediocrity year after year? We got into it with Liz!But first, we discussed wether the Eagles offensive line is seeing any development, as well as how truly bad the Eagles defense is. Plus, we gave our scoring predictions for this coming week's Eagles vs. Panthers game. (approx. 6:20)We then dove into the Urban Meyer scandal and controversy as it pertains to him as a person, and how he doesn't appear to grasp the differences between college football and pro football. (approx. 24:20)Once again, our Sixers talk this week focused on Ben Simmons and what we're seeing on the court early in this preseason without his presence. Struggles and challenges are on the horizon. (approx. 35:30)We then talked about what we're looking forward to during the MLB postseason as the Phillies season is now over. (approx. 45:55)This week's interview, and what we threw down on the Table was a fantastic discussion with Liz Roscher from Yahoo Sports as there was much reflection on the Phillies season. Can Harper and Wheeler replicate what they did on the field this year into next season? How can the Phillies begin to reshape development in the farm system? How big of a problem was Joe Girardi when we look at the Phillies performance as a whole? All of this and much more during our discussion with Liz!

The Dombrowski presser was today/yesterday and we talk about that. Along with some dad jokes, the Phillies need a big bat in the middle of the lineup. Also, a good many other things like Bohm working out at 3rd base and Bryce Harper's roomie being a big possibility at Shortstop. JT needs to just wear the protective gear he is provided to prevent an injury ridden season. Payroll is not an issue as ownership is willing to go over the luxury tax for the right players. And the bullpen and closer positions need to be better. Play Ball...and Enjoy!!!
Ben Simmons is getting fined to oblivion by the 76ers and complaining to the NBA about it. He's selling his house in Philly to pay the electric bills for his LA one. Kyle Neubeck is giving us 100x better updates than Brian Windhorst is. But somehow Mark Henry at this moment in 2021 finds a way to defend Ben Simmons (00:00 - 27:26) Bob Wankel comes on for the last Wankel Wednesday of 2021 to talk about a vicious attack Sunday on Michael Barkann, the toxic Phillies culture, Bryce Harper using the media to get to the organization, the Driveline baseball nerds, who he'd sign in the offseason, does he think he earned Wankel Wednesday's in 2022 and live breaking Eagles trade what if.

On Episode 510 of Hittin' Season, hosts John Stolnis, Liz Roscher and Justin Klugh deliver their postmortem on the 2021 Phillies system. In a season in which Bryce Harper is the leading MVP candidate and Zack Wheeler could win the Cy Young, how did the Phillies finish with just an 82-80 record? Is Joe Girardi the right manager for this team? Why the lack of a competent farm system doomed this team and whether or not we can trust Dave Dombrowski to right the ship were all talked about on this episode, as was a quick preview of the MLB postseason, sans Phils.

Philadelphia has to rely on the offense to help them win this division. Why? The Padres had trouble hitting offspeed pitches outside of the plate. They were so focused on hitting fastballs in different areas of the plate in the zone. The Phillies however, like to hit fastballs well but they do have an advantage over the Padres because the area Atlanta won over San Deigo, Philadelphia likes to hit from. Look at how Philadelphia can win games simply cause of Bryce Harper being hot at the right moment. What is your prediction for this series?

On Episode 507 of Hittin' Season, host John Stolnis recaps the Phillies frustrating yet important series win over the hapless Baltimore Orioles, who the Phillies treated as the second coming of the 1969 version. No, that wasn't Jim Palmer, Mike Cuellar and Dave McNally out there this week, but the Phils offense acted like they were. Thankfully, some late inning heroics from J.T. Realmuto, a timely dinger by Andrew McCutchen, and MVP play from Bryce Harper helped the Phillies avoid a season-killing disaster. The Phils now have four games against the lowly Pirates, with a trip to Atlanta & Miami to finish the season. Kris Willis of the Braves' SB Nation site Talking Chop joins the show to preview next week's big match-up and give his analysis on where things stand in the NL East with a week and a half left in the regular season.

The Nats won 7-5 in Miami for a rare series victory. Mark & Al begin with Josiah Gray's much needed solid outing that resulted in his career Major League win. Most encouraging for Gray was that he did not allow any homers and only issued one walk in six innings.(11:55) Juan Soto was all over the scorecard on Wednesday night as he reached base five times and was a triple shy of the cycle. Soto walked twice; tying Bryce Harper's single season franchise record of 130. Where does Soto's MVP campaign stack up against Harper's case?(23:53) Luis Garcia went yard for the sixth time this season and had a strong series at the plate. This month he has eight doubles and is hitting above .280.(31:51) Alex Avila started for the second time recently as Riley Adams has only started one of the past eleven games at catcher. A flabbergasted Al begs Mark for an explanation as to why they are using the retiring veteran as opposed to giving the at bats to Riley.(36:42) Cade Cavalli only lasted four innings in his latest AAA start, but didn't walk any batters. Should fans be concerned that he has struggled at this level?
Welcome back to the BODEGA (baseball podcast). The AL wild card race is like nothing we've ever seen before with the top 3 teams all coming from the AL East. We go over the different scenarios and what team we think will come out on top. The Blue Jays are the most solid, and the Red Sox have caught fire recently, winning 6 in row. But in the end - the Yankees control their fate as they can sweep the Red sox and gain a wild card position. The MVP award - is there any debate? For some, it's clear that Shohei Ohtani is the MVP - but don't count out triple crown threat Vladimir Guerrero Jr just yet. In the NL, the fans have crowned Tatis the MVP but Bryce Harper and Juan Soto have been the two best hitters in the second half. Is there trouble in San Diego? Over the weekend, a video surfaced of Manny Machado and Fernando Tatis Jr arguing in the duggout. Its no secret that the Padres have been struggling in the second half - they are all but eliminated for the playoffs. Is there more trouble than meets the eye?
On Episode 506 of Hittin' Season, hosts John Stolnis and Liz Roscher discuss another agonizing loss against the worst team in baseball, the 100+-loss Orioles, who shut out the Phillies on Monday night in historic fashion. Also, they take a spin around the league and handicap pennant and wild card races throughout MLB and discuss the highly competitive NL MVP race. Is Bryce Harper pulling away?

The Nats lost a heartbreaker 8-7 at Miami in ten innings. Mark & Al are flabbergasted at how for the third time in under two years; the Nationals have been on the wrong end of a runner's interference call at first base. Josh Bell was called out to end the top of the 10th, costing the team a chance to take the lead. Was the right call made? Hear an exasperated Davey Martinez from his postgame press conference.(9:56) Luis Garcia had a very costly base running mistake in the top of the 10th as he was not able to score from second base on a Lane Thomas double. Why was he unable to score in that situation?(19:39) Keibert Ruiz had three hits on Monday and had 4 RBIs, including hits from both sides of the plate. Are we seeing him turn the corner with the bat?(24:41) Juan Soto reached base four times and had a single. He currently is hitting .315 and is one percentage point behind Trea Turner for the NL lead. Soto has now reached base four times in a game a staggering TWENTY TWO TIMES this season. Hear how his numbers stacks up post all star break against NL MVP front runner Bryce Harper.(31:15) Erick Fedde had a so so outing as he yielded three homers on the night. The bullpen did not have a good game, but Tanner Rainey stole the show in the 9th. He struck out the side and if you include AAA; he has struck out fifteen consecutive batters.(38:12) Josh Bell robbed a home run while playing left field. You are reading that last sentence correctly.
Jeff Passan joins Buster to discuss the AL MVP conversation shifting to Vlad Guerrero Jr. and how absurd that is with the way Shohei Ohtani is playing, Bryce Harper as the NL MVP, the confrontation between Manny Machado and Fernando Tatis Jr. in the dugout and the offseason reckoning facing the Padres, possibilities for the Mets GM job, if Aaron Boone could be fired if the Yankees miss the playoffs, and Andrew McCutcheon supporting improved conditions for minor leaguers. Plus, Buster goes rapid fire with J.T. Realmuto.
Watch on YouTube for a better viewing experience where we incorporate videos, tweets, articles and more! Mark Henry officially joins the podcast for the rest of eternity until we are 6 feet under in the dirt. Recapping the Eagles/49ers, Nick Sirianni looked like a rookie head coach, Jalen Hurts might not have the arm for a franchise QB, we're split on the Philly Special play call on 4th down, time to remove targeting from the game of football, and Eagles fans leaving with 5 minutes left on the clock with the team still in it. (00:00 - 33:10) Kyle then talks about the behind the scenes of the viral Jalen Hurts “Rents Due” shirt, fighting bots for hours, people threatening to sue him for his own design, getting the shirt to NFL Network and NBCSports, and learning about the gutter war that is the merch game. (33:10 - 47:40) Finally, Bryce Harper is the MVP betting favorite and we recap his historic season and how it stands up to other Philly athletes.

The Nats were blanked 6-0 by Colorado for a third straight defeat. Mark & Al begin with a lengthy discussion centering around Patrick Corbin; as the lefty's ERA rose back above 6.00. What are the team's options on how to handle Corbin in 2022? Does the organization as a whole need to alter things behind the scenes as it relates to pitching?(19:28) The bullpen threw five shutout innings on Saturday between Ryne Harper and Sean Nolin. Will Nolin's ability to eat innings benefit the ailing 'pen in the final few weeks?(21:52) Juan Soto had a double and his average is now at .315. He is in the midst of a very intriguing batting chase with ex teammates Trea Turner and Bryce Harper. Al points out how regardless of what happens with batting average, Soto is without question the best hitter.(26:30) We organically careened into a conversation on Max Scherzer's push for the Cy Young and evaluating the decision to trade him away. Do you think the Nationals should have kept him even if the team was out of contention?(34:31) A voice memo from a listener about her memories from Anibal Sanchez's masterpiece in St. Louis in 2019.
Bally Sports' Tampa Bay Rays pregame and postgame analyst, former Marlins player, and former member of ESPN's Baseball Tonight team, Orestest Destrade returns to the Jack Vita Show for a quick rundown on the latest baseball news. The Toronto Blue Jays and St. Louis Cardinals have moved in to American League and National League wild card positions, respectively. Both teams are heating up at the right time. Orestes got a close look at the upstart Jays' team, when they took two of three from the Rays earlier this week. The Yankees and Red Sox have struggled lately, while the A's and Mariners have remained a few games back of the wild card game. How will it all shake out on the AL side over the final two weeks? Likewise, the Giants, Brewers and Braves remain atop the NL divisions. But will the Giants fend off the Dodgers and win their first NL West title since 2012? The Phillies are just 3 games back of the Braves in the NL East, 2.5 games back of the wild card. The Reds and Padres are just a game out, each. Orestes and Jack examine things on the NL side, and debate their AL and MVP selections. They also talk about the growth of Bryce Harper, who may be on track for his second NL MVP award.
