I hear #phillies are bringing in former Phillie Matt Stairs this week to talk about TV Color Job. Not sure they know who they want.

We had planned to talk with him before Eskin put out that Tweet. But we asked him about it and this was his response:
Are you going to be interviewing for color job with the Philles?
Howard Eskin tweeted out, “I hear Phillies are bringing in former Phillie Matt Stairs this week…”
“I’m trying to figure out how that rumor got out there.”
Well, Howard Eskin put it out there. It’s from two days ago.
“We’ll leave it at that.”
Since our interview, Todd Zolecki has confirmed Eskin’s report and said that Stairs will likely be the last candidate to interview for the job. Jamie Moyer, Kevin Stocker, Mickey Morandini and Mitch Williams are also finalists.
And this, which will make sense later:
