The Sports Bash ON DEMAND gives you the chance to go back and hear what you missed. Its the Sports Bash with Mike Gill and Todd Ranck.
Here is today’s show: Tuesday April 1st 2014
Redskins insider for ESPN.com John Keim called in to give us the latest on DeSean Jackson possibly signing with the team. Jackson is in DC and was at Redskins Park the last two days meeting with coaches and others. Keim said that for players like Jackson, "you make exceptions" and it doesn't matter about missing meetings and beefing with coaches. Keim did mention some salary cap problems, but doesn't anticipate that stopping a deal. Keim would be surprised if a deal isnt reached between the two parties. Follow Keim on Twitter.
Mosh called in with his update on DJAX and where the Eagles go from here and how they are planning to replace Jackson. Mosh sad the Eagles could look in the draft, in the first few rounds for a replacement to DJAX. Mosher has a write-up on CSN Philly listing possible and potential replacements including Miles Austin and Mike Wallace. Follow Mosher on Twitter.
Wright, President of Draft Countdown, called in to talk about the wide receivers in this draft and since the Eagles rid themselves of DJAX, they'll be in the market for one. Wright says this draft class of WR is so good that even if you don't need a WR, you'll think about taking one with these guys. The Eagles hosted Mike Evans yesterday, a stud WR from Texas A & M. The only thing is that Evans is expected to be selected before 22nd so the Eagles would have to trade up. Follow Wright and his mock drafts on Twitter.
Part of the Phillies broadcast team called in to talk about the strong offensive output from the Phillies yesterday on Opening Day in Texas. Now tonight's lineup is something that we haven't seen since August of 2008. Ryan Howard will be batting in the fifth position, Marlon Byrd, who had a home run yesterday, will be batting cleanup. Cody Asche who had a strong debut yesterday will no play tonight, Chase Utley will be your DH. That's what we can expect from Ryne Sandberg, according to Murphy. Sandberg also pushed the right buttons regarding the bullpen as well. Phillies in Texas tonight and tomorrow against the Rangers before heading to Chicago to play the Cubs at Wrigley.
