Today we’re talking:
- Phillies Opening Day
- Bullpen PTSD
- Odubel Herrera or Mickey Moniak?
- Sixers Road Trip Recap
- The Return of Joel Embiid
- The Flyers Stink
Joel Embiid is expected to return to the lineup tonight against the Minnesota Timberwolves which of course, brings up memories from earlier last season where the Wells Fargo Center was up in flames as Embiid and Karl Anthony Towns got into an all-out brawl. We look ahead as the Sixers sit a half-game behind the Brooklyn Nets in the Eastern Conference Standings and how they match up with the favorites in the East come playoff time.
The Phillies won in walk-off fashion on Opening Day against the Atlanta Braves 3-2. Adam Haseley pulled his groin yet again which leaves us questioning if Odubel Herrera or Mickey Moniak would make the most sense for the Phillies to call-up while Haseley is out due to injury. We touch on the Eagles ability to get draft picks right and the complete dismantling of the Philadelphia Flyers in the month of March.
