NL East race heats up: Phillies take first, Braves above .500, Mets slide; impact of managers, more
Jack Vita is joined by diehard Phillies fan Jake Paliga, who is riding high as the Phillies currently have an 8-game win-streak and counting. Jack and Jake provide an update on the Best Sports Movie of All-Time Bracket, then assess the infrastructure of the NL East after the Phillies swept the Mets over the weekend and moved into first place, and the Braves have finally gotten above .500 for the first time this season. How worried is Jack about the Braves surpassing the Phillies in the NL East? Jake and Jack discuss the impact managers have on teams (including Joe Girardi and Tony La Russa), the NL MVP race (and Bryce Harper and Freddie Freeman's place in the race), other division races (AL West, AL East, NL Central and NL West), the collapse of the Mets and Red Sox, the red hot Reds, and news from around the league.
