Ben Simmons Trade INEVITABLE? | Dave from UK Phillies joins Marc Farzetta | Farzy Show 7/26
Happy Monday everyone! Who is excited for Farzy to catch you up on everything happening with the Phillies, Flyers, Eagles, and the latest developments with the Ben Simmons trade? Oh yeah, the world’s most-watched sporting event, the Olympics began on Friday!
For the first time, Keith Pompey of the Philly Inquirer, reports that a Ben Simmons trade is inevitable. Whether that will happen this season or further down the road is still unknown. For more information on the latest, read Pompey’s article here.
Farzy believes that the Flyers will be the best they possibly can next year, but worries that trading future first-round draft picks will be problematic in the coming seasons.
The Phillies split their two games against the Atlanta Braves over the weekend, picking up a 2-1 win yesterday. After shaky performances as of late from Aaron Nola, Farzy was ecstatic with last night’s outing. “If Yesterday was a sneak peek of what Aaron Nola will give you the rest of the season. Then the Phillies will win the division,” an excited Farzy says.
Marc says that the fans should not have picked the battle of booing Joe Girardi for taking out Aaron Nola after an exceptional game. Farzy “Would have love to seen him finish,” but is excited to have vintage Nola back. Farzetta checks in with Dave Dombrowski as the trade deadline approaches.
On the Rothman Orthopaedics guest line, Farzy checks in with Dave from UK Phillies, who is still hurting from England’s painful loss to Italy in the Euro Cup final. Dave and Farzy break down potential moves Dombrowski will make in the coming days. Dave says that “we need a consistent lineup, which has been tough with Covid” before adding “we do have some depth already, so we just need some arms from the bullpen.”
In the Morning Rush Segment, brought to you by Sky Motor Cars, Farzy checks in with Tom Brady and his impressive training regimen. He then gets us caught up on team USA’s stunning defeat to France 83-76 in the opening game of the Olympics, for their first loss since the 2004 games. Hopefully, they can bounce back against Iran on Wednesday. The Phillies will take on the Washington Nationals at Citizen Bank Park for a four-game series that starts tonight.
