Offseason musings on the Phils, waiting for the signal that baseball will start on time
This is the 2nd edition of Phillies Talk Podcast for 2022 - the start of the 16th season of podcasting by Phillies Talk Podcast with Rich again telling the listeners how the show started back in the day.
The Players Association will come back with a response to the MLB on Monday Jan. 24th, and hopefully it will be good news, a lot of news outlets are reporting it won't be a settlement but we'll have to wait and see.
Brandon Duckworth's birthday on the 24th, the show talks about that and then we take a look at Jayson Werth and Pat Burrell, and how they both made out after their time on the WS winning team in 2008.
The Phillies are retired numbers are talked about, I really think the Phillies have this right, don't retire everyone's number like the Yankees have for god's sake.
All of this and so much more!
First show of 2022 - still Locked Out!
It's still a state of baseball lockout, not what the fans of baseball need after enduring the 2020 shortened season by Covid-19 and then risking their own lives by attending a game or two or more in 2021 at the stadium and now the MLB owners decided to lockout the players and create a fiasco that better be straightened up soon.
Should baseball fans flex their collective muscles by not buying any tickets when this is going on? This will put some added leverage on the whole situation, I know I won't be buying tickets anytime too soon. Should the owners even be able to sell tickets when technically there aren't any players?
All of this and more on the first show of the year for the Phillies Talk Podcast with Rich Baxter for 2022.
Locked Out Baseball and start of the '21 Holiday season
We're back talking baseball, on this show! Matt Veasey joins me for a great talk about the Hot Stove season for the Phillies that led up to the Lock Out by MLB. We have plenty to talk about.

We're just getting started in this tremendous holiday season and hope to be back for another show before Christmas, so put up your feet, pour that hot cup of cocoa or tea and enjoy this edition of Phillies Talk Podcast!

Game 162 for the 2021 Phillies season
It's time for another episode of Phillies Talk Podcast, the last day of the regular season for the Phillies. Disappointed that things just didn't go the Phillies way to get into the playoffs, but again, did this team deserve to have a change to win the NL East?

Phillies still have a chance at first place in NL East - last 6 games of season
It's the Phillies Talk Podcast with Rich Baxter, the longest running independent podcast that talks about the Philadelphia Phillies baseball team.
A solo show this time around but there is plenty to talk about with the Phils still being a possible NL East Champ - just six games remaining and 3 of those games happen to be with the Braves, so if the Phillies can just keep winning, we may see them in the playoffs.
A bit of a rant develops on the podcast, so be forewarned, this team could have easily coasted into the playoffs with the correct moves by management that were never made.

Phils making a courageous run for the NL East Title, can they do it?

Do the Phillies deserve to be 'buyers' at the trade deadline? Ownership gives green light
It's the latest edition of Phillies Talk Podcast by Rich Baxter with Matt Veasey. We're talking about the Phillies chances to either catch the Mets or somehow turn this team around to get 10 games or so over .500 - is this team just spinning wheels?
Later on in the show, Rich and Matt talk about the trade scenario. Rich offers up a long shot of possibly trading Bryce Harper and get a boatload of good players for him, of course Matt explains that it is crazy to consider this, but with 3 years in, Rich says, he would part with Harp even though he likes him as a player.

Phillies try to salvage bad 2020 season in August

What has happened to two Phillies players that use to play very well? Scott "Jet Pax" Kingery and Rhys Hoskins struggle to show a decent season in the batting department. It's concerning, and maybe there is a reason for it?
