Back in November, it was announced that Jamie Moyer was asked to leave/would not be returning to/all of the above (circle your answer) the Phillies broadcast booth. The seat next to Tom McCarthy and Matt Stairs was suddenly empty. And though Mike Schmidt worked Sundays (and was actually kind of terrible), we didn’t know who would replace Moyer. Thanks to Todd Zolecki, now we do.
The seat will be filled by either Kevin Stocker or Ben Davis. Davis, a local product who has on-air experience with CSN, is likely the favorite. But Stocker actually played for the Phillies and has spent two seasons doing color-commentary for the Pac-12 Network.
We’ll have more when the role is filled.
I have over 4000 pieces of vinyl
Stairs is so fn boring. I would have mike miss and big daddy GRAHMM do every inning of every game. Best duo ever.
I’ve heard a lot of people calling for big daddy grahm to do this
I think big daddy would do a great job. Also bobby the brain Heenan would be good too.
Big Daddy would be worst than Schmitty.
Big Daddy would never take the job, the Phillies would never let him plug all his sh*t.
“And though Mike Schmidt worked Sundays (and was actually kind of terrible)”
Are you joking Jim? Schmidt was the only bright spot to listen to in an otherwise terrible pairing of Moyer/Stairs all last year. Jim, how many Phillies games did you watch last year to make a ridiculous statement like that?
As for Moyer’s replacement, my money is on Ben Davis. He’s paid his CSN dues and at this point is much more recognizable in the Philly TV and radio market than Kevin Stocker. I watched Stocker play years ago and really don’t remember much of him other than he had a decent glove at SS and was a callup in 93.
I’ve never heard of any of these guys.
Baseball is dead and gay.
how could you I think it’s alright to post a well articulated and extremely well thought out comment on this website you’re a jackass
I totally agree on Schmidt. At least he gives some honest input and isn’t afraid to criticize. I enjoyed his innings. Plus, he has just a bit of credibility.
Should hire Todd Pratt over these 2 stiffs
At least he has some personality but who is going to replace McCarthy.
Schmidt was very good. I’d hire them both and get rid of Stairs
I hate jim. That is all
Couldn’t be pulling for Ben Davis more. Great guy and not afraid to be critical. Stocker would be another yes man
ben does have the morning show taint.
Exactly. Davis would be great.
Why not have me in the booth?
Instead of talking about the game, we could talk about my small penis and my girlfriend’s boobs! RATINGS GOLD #DitchBitchanelli #ImReallyImportant
Your girl does have a great rack!
How does Ben Davis get consideration over RickyBo? Does Ricky simply not want the gig due to travel?
Cuz he has a creepy redneck vibe to him. Wouldn’t do well with our market.
Well, if Stocker gets the job, I guess I’ll remember him for more than being “that guy who we traded for Bobby Abreu.”
Could the one who does not get the Phils gig, be it stocker or Davis, replace Jim?
No experience necessary.
How the hell does Stairs still have his job?
Somewhere, Mitch Williams is angrily breaking things in his living room while reading this news.
Get rid of Stairs and hire Stocker and Davis
how about rhea since she is great on quick slants and lunch break? nevermind, weekend work would cut into her drinking time at her shore house.
I think you’re pretty much alone in your opinion that Schmidt was “actually kind of terrible.” He was pretty much universally lauded for what he brought to Sunday home games.
YOU, on the other hand, are “actually kind of terrible” and your career in sports blogging should last no longer than Moyer’s career as a broadcaster in Philadelphia.
Wow that was rough. But fair. Call it a day Jim.
Maybe Moyer resigned to spend more time with his family.
Mitch is a no brainer for that spot. Naturally the Phillies will screw it up.
Ben Davis would be perfect.
I can’t wait to hear about how Chase Utley bobbling a ground ball was Obama’s fault.
This is spot on. We all know it would be Bush’s fault.
No broads up for this spot?
I really think big daddy Grahm would breathe new life into this broadcast.
No one is mentioning reea hews for the job???
That mug of hers would look great in HD. They would just need to sandblast those dentures to cut down on the yellow glare it is.
Dude Kyle is friends with reea hews… Why do u think he blocks people from commenting with her real name. He thinks she’s hot.
I just moved here from Beverly hills, the first thing I did was put on CSN philly only to see this lady reea hews… Holy shit I didn’t think they made them that ugly. I guess u east coast people don’t care about looks cuz out in LA we would never put something that ugly on TV.
i think gargano is still available.
I like Ben. He’s just sooo dreamy….
“In case you are wondering, I will fuck this up too”-RAJ
Ben would do a GREAT job. A local kid that grew up a Phillies fan. He played the most important spot (catcher) on the field in the Big Leagues, and knows every position on the field as a result. I have heard his batting analysis on CSN too and it is aways spot on. He points out things that the Average Joe would never see or even consider. He has returned home and is still a Phillies fan. I hope he gets the gig!!
