Eskin Says Franzke to Interview with Texas, Franzke Says He’s Under Contract with Phillies

Scott_franzke

UPDATE:  Franzke told Kevin Cooney (@kevincooney) "I'm under contract for next year with the Phillies. Nothing has changed."

As we first speculated in October, Scott Franzke could be interested in taking a job as TV play-by-play guy with the Texas Rangers.  Howard Eskin (@howardeskin) just Tweeted that Franzke is interviewing for the Rangers' job.

I'm told Phillies radio pl by pl guy Scott Franske Interviewing in texas. If they lose him its a disgrace for Phils. Again its Phils cheap

He's right.  Our very unscientific poll had him the clear favorite, especially after cheaping out on Davey Lopes.  One would think he would like to be on television at this point in his career, although he told Phillies Nation otherwise.

Somewhere Jim Jackson has his fingers crossed.

    I wish the season would just start already so I could watch games instead of being distracted with all this shit. No (decent) replacement for Werth, Lee may be a Yankee (God, no) and this earlier today. I need to just see that first game so Halladay can remind me that it’s all gonna be ok and we got this. 🙁 Nine weeks til pitchers and catchers report…

    Except Halladay, of course. He’s nine days in. How will he outdo himself now? A TRULY perfect game? 27 up, 81 strikes?

    i’d be fine with jim jackson doing play by play, he’s been doing the flyers since i was old enough to know what hockey was and he had a distinctive, classic voice that people like harry kalas and merril reese have. who better to take over for the morons we have calling the game now?

    Eskin is a hack. Anyone who says the Phillies are cheap have an unhinged quality about them. Yeah, we know all about Lopes. It may have been something else though. But when the Phillies spend a’s much a’s they do and make a’s many moves a’s they do, you just can’t call them cheap.

    I would rather Franzke and LA to TV and JJ and somebody else to radio – let McCarthy and Wheels hit the road

    I agree with Brian! Wheels and T-mac are so disconnected from the “new generation” of phils fans that you cant help but laugh at them. Franzke and LA have that edge about them, not saying they are an R rated movie but compared to the overly protective and bland Wheels they might as well be! Sarge could know more baseball then every other broadcaster combined but the man CAN NOT TALK… Google the Jimmy Kimmel Accidental Joke clip with sarge… and while your googling to see why the phils cant let Franzke leave, listen to the Rollins walkoff call from the 09 playoffs! CLASSIC

    Eskin always had an agenda when it comes to the Phillies. I just unfollowed him on twitter because of that comment. I am sick of all his “Phillies are bad, Eagles are great” agenda’s.
    That is just unprofessional journalism at best right there. He just made that up. I think that Scott should be given an extension before the end of next season.

    it will be a joke if the phils let him go. it’s also a disgrace he’s not on TV by now. I’m sick & tired of looking/listening at Wheels fake rug & smug comments
