Phillies Nation TV: Sandberg, Halladay and Top Free Agent Targets

Posted by Brian Michael, Fri, August 30, 2013 11:34 AM Comments: 0

This week the Pat and Corey cover the first week under new Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg. Was his hiring the catalyst for a team that won 5 of 6 games? Or perhaps it was Roy Halladay’s first start since going on the DL that will serve to energize the team. Still, like C.C. Sabathia in New York, the guys discuss how Roy’s performance is still below expectations.

Also covered this week are the futures for role players such as Roger Bernadina, Darin Ruf and Jake Diekman. We also breakdown last Saturday’s wacky 18-inning game in our “By the Numbers” segment.

Ryann asks the guys who tops their list of off-season free agent targets for the Phillies. And Brian Quinn of BQ Basement Systems stops by the set to talk about the dual disappointment of a wet basement and the 2013 Phillies.

PNTV Interview: Mickey Morandini at the Celebrity Hitting Challenge

Posted by Jay Floyd, Tue, July 16, 2013 08:00 AM Comments: 0

Recently, Phillies Nation TV headed out to the Class A South Atlantic League All-Star events in Lakewood, NJ to attend the Celebrity Hitting Challenge that was hosted at FirstEnergy Park by the BlueClaws. The “Clawstar Spectacular”, as it was called, featured the likes of former players Matt Stairs and Dwight Gooden along with comedian Artie Lange, who were all featured in interviews on a recent edition of our program.

All the footage we collect can’t always make the final edit of the show, so there are often clips or interviews we don’t use. Among the material that ended up on the cutting room floor from the Celebrity Hitting Challenge was a one-on-one interview with former Phillies All-Star second baseman Mickey Morandini.  In the interview, Mickey, who is now the manager for the BlueClaws, discussed the event, the reactions he gets from fans, looking forward to the 1993 Phillies reunion coming up next month and plenty more.

Check out the media player below for that interview and don’t forget to watch new episodes of Phillies Nation TV each Tuesday at 6 PM on The Comcast Network with replays running throughout the week on TCN and Comcast SportsNet.
