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.
