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.

Pat and Corey cover the 2013 Phillies trade deadline that never was – and even discuss the merits of moving the deadline back a couple of weeks in August. They also offer thoughts on who might still be traded in August or the off-season. One guy who will not be traded, is the newly acquired Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez who the guys will introduce you to as well. We have some exclusive footage of him fanning batters in Cuba.

Ryann sits down with Ellen Barkann, of the Barkann Family Foundation, to talk about what she and Michael are doing in the community – including a big event coming up in September at the Zoo called The Day Philly Remembers.  And as always, your questions and comments are presented by BQ Basement Systems.
