Wentz trade stalls, Sixers lose two in a row, Phillies offseason roundup

Episode Summary

Brian and Ryan update the Eagles situation as the Carson Wentz trade saga stalls (0:45). Will Howie’s patience in these negotiations pay-off? Also, Zach Ertz is expected to be traded—where; when; and possibly with Wentz? We then pivot to the Sixers (10:55) where we react to their two-game losing streak, their continued need for perimeter defense, and whether or not they can win the East as currently constructed. Finally, we’re joined by Full Scale’s Phillies writer Connor Longen to look at the Phils offseason (29:05) three days before pitchers and catchers report to spring training—where did they improve; can they contend in the NL East; what roster battles should we look forward to?
