In this week's edition of TGP Radio, I spoke with Joe Giglio of WIP, WFAN and NJ.com to talk about whether what the Phillies are doing in 2016 should be considered "tanking." ESPN's Buster Olney directly responded to my piece from the day before (Insider access only), claiming the Phillies were tanking, and that it's a problem that baseball should be worried about.
Needless to say, I disagree.
