  • First show of 2022 - still Locked Out!

    15/01/2022 Duração: 24min

    It's still a state of baseball lockout, not what the fans of baseball need after enduring the 2020 shortened season by Covid-19 and then risking their own lives by attending a game or two or more in 2021 at the stadium and now the MLB owners decided to lockout the players and create a fiasco that better be straightened up soon.  Should baseball fans flex their collective muscles by not buying any tickets when this is going on? This will put some added leverage on the whole situation, I know I won't be buying tickets anytime too soon. Should the owners even be able to sell tickets when technically there aren't any players?  All of this and more on the first show of the year for the Phillies Talk Podcast with Rich Baxter for 2022. --- Send in a voice message: Support this podcast:

  • Phillies still have a chance at first place in NL East - last 6 games of season

    27/09/2021 Duração: 31min

    It's the Phillies Talk Podcast with Rich Baxter, the longest running independent podcast that talks about the Philadelphia Phillies baseball team. A solo show this time around but there is plenty to talk about with the Phils still being a possible NL East Champ - just six games remaining and 3 of those games happen to be with the Braves, so if the Phillies can just keep winning, we may see them in the playoffs.  A bit of a rant develops on the podcast, so be forewarned, this team could have easily coasted into the playoffs with the correct moves by management that were never made.  All this and more on this edition of the podcast.

  • Do the Phillies deserve to be 'buyers' at the trade deadline? Ownership gives green light

    25/07/2021 Duração: 57min

    It's the latest edition of Phillies Talk Podcast by Rich Baxter with Matt Veasey. We're talking about the Phillies chances to either catch the Mets or somehow turn this team around to get 10 games or so over .500 - is this team just spinning wheels? Later on in the show, Rich and Matt talk about the trade scenario. Rich offers up a long shot of possibly trading Bryce Harper and get a boatload of good players for him, of course Matt explains that it is crazy to consider this, but with 3 years in, Rich says, he would part with Harp even though he likes him as a player.  Bryant and Kimbrel to the Phillies? What would we have to give in return? Let's see how Dombrowski works it.  Sponsor the show here:  Rate and review anywhere you listen to the show, give us 5 stars!

  • Phillies try to salvage bad 2020 season in August

    24/08/2020 Duração: 25min

    It's a week left in the trade deadline... What do the Phillies do? They will not be adding anyone, I can tell you that.

Scott "Jet Pax" Kingery and Rhys Hoskins struggle to show a decent season in the batting department. It's concerning, and maybe there is a reason for it?    --- Send in a voice message: Support this podcast:
