Felger & Mazz: Sox-Phillies Series Preview, Live From Shining Rock Golf Club
Felger & Massarotti are broadcasting Tuesday’s show live from Shining Rock Golf Club in Northbridge, the site of the 1st Annual Sports Hub…Who’s Your Caddy? Classic, a charity event which benefits the Pediatric Advance Care Team at the Children’s Hospital Boston. Despite the fact that they are broadcasting live from a golf course, Felger and Mazz have decided to devote the day to “dorking out” on baseball and previewing the Red Sox upcoming Inter-league series with the Philadelphia Phillies.
The Phillies currently sport the best record in baseball at 49-30, and Mazz opened up the series preview by outlining why he thinks the Phillies are the best team in baseball. While Tony does think that the Red Sox aren’t too far behind the Phillies, he highlights how the depth of the Phillies’ pitching rotation gives them the edge over the Sox. Will the Sox lineup be able to handle the Phillies’ dominant lefty pitching, or will their lefty hitters be outmatched by Cole Hamels and Cliff Lee?
After sluggish showings against the Padres and Pirates, Felger and Mazz wonder how the Red Sox will respond against this formidable Philly ball club. The Sox recent lapses have thrown them back into the thick of the AL East division race, and they need to elevate their play to avoid being swept by the Phillies. Will the Sox rise to the occasion and make their case as the best team in baseball, or will this series leave Sox fan fearing the possibility of a World Series match-up with the Phillies? Tune in to find out!
