On Episode 35 of “Continued Success,” hosts Justin Klugh and Liz Roscher discuss Phillies owner John Middleton’s comments to USA Today that the team is going to spend big money this off-season and that some of it “may be stupid!”

Topics include:

  • If Middleton is going to spend a ton of cash, how much are we talking about here?
  • Does this mean Bryce Harper AND Manny Machado?
  • Rhys Hoskins has hit some taters in Japan.
  • Aaron Nola got MVP votes and finished 3rd in the NL Cy Young voting. He’s really good.
  • Baseball broadcasts are largely terrible — how can they improve?
  • Improvements the Phillies teams could make to their broadcasts
  • Rob Manfred got a contract extension. I guess this is important somehow.
