    Caught them on WFAN today. They were subbing for the regulars - Joe and Kevin.

    Really good baseball stuff -- eminently more listenable than the drivel from the regulars.

    I was expecting something else when I opened this thread.

    Same here. And I'm wildly disappointed.

    I'm pretty sure it's Joe and Evan, but the point stands, the two are very good together. Steve Phillips is an excellent broadcaster. He doesn't seem to have any desire to get back into the game, so he sounds pretty up front with his opinions (and he's appropriately self-deprecating when talking about his work with the Mets).

    He was also quite forthright when Francesa interviewed him for the first time after his ... ahem ... troubles. I thought he did a lot to repair his image in that interview. Francesa acknowledged that some fans would think it was a bad idea to have him on the show after what happened, but he said he felt Phillips could bring a lot to the broadcast with a regular spot every week and I think he was right.

    Does he last longer than 15 seconds?
  9. Phillips is a freaking clown and anyone who spends more than 15 seconds listening to him needs to seriously look in the mirror and come up with better ways to spend their time. Life is short, you know. And there's like 10,000 other ass bags on the NYC airwaves at the same time, at least ONE person has to be better. Christ, I'd rather listen to Tim McCarver all day.

    Good luck listening to McCarver, Jimmy. Don't expect us to throw a rope to you when you finally decide to jump out the window listening to Captain Obvious.

    I'm not a big Phillips guy, and with that I can tolerate him. Just don't have him do that faux GM bullcrap that he did with ESPN back in the day.

    That was an unmitigated joke.

    Just why is he a clown? Please be specific, because I disagree.
