100 Greatest Phillies of All Time by Ian Riccaboni – now available on Amazon!

Ian Riccaboni and Steve Coring discuss the latest Phillies news including:

  • An update on the RED HOT (!) Phillies. Ian offers to mail them a trophy if they win the Grapefruit League
  • With Adam LaRoche retiring, does Ryan Howard make sense as a trade target for the Chicago White Sox? 
  • Why Steve has a St. Patrick’s day El Pulpo jersey (Ian has horrible Spanish/memory)
  • Ian and Steve try to sort out the bullpen. Is it OK to get excited about Andrew Bailey? Which lefty (Bobby LaFromboise, James Russell, Daniel Stumpf) breaks camp with the team?
  • How or why do you know Steve Winwood? Spencer Davis Group? Blind Faith? Traffic? “ROLL WITH IT, BABY!”?

No trivia question this week but an essay: What if A-Rod breaks the home run record and says Hank Aaron is the real home run king? Send your answer to!

Steve’s son makes a very special appearance!
