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: Thursday June 14th, 2012.
It's time to send him down
Mike Gill opens the show up saying the Phillies need to make an example, and send John Mayberry, Jr down to the minors. Gill says it doesn't matter what Mayberry did (2/5 4 RBI) in last nights 9-8 victory in Minnesota. Mayberry was handed a position in April and he hasn't grabbed it by the horns yet. Its the big picture, says Mike. Juan Pierre would play LF in place of an optioned Mayberry. Was last night the time to send a message to the team? We took callers on this and some agree, while others disagree. The culture/mindset needs to change with this team. A follower of ours on Twitter, Kyle, called in and defended his "war" that he had with Mike Gill last night. That my friends, is very admirable of him as many people wouldn't follow up like that.
Latest on Phillies injuries
Our weekly injury expert, Joe DeRosa, called in and updated us on the four Phillies injuries that are really hurting this team right now. How good will Ryan Howard be when in fact he does return in July? Should Chase Utley be playing in the majors by now? Plus what exactly is the injury 2B Freddy Galvis was diagnosed with? Click below and find out the latest on the Phillies injuries. Joe DeRosa is a physical therapist for Eastern Shore Physical Therapy located on 1999 New Road in Linwood.
Mike and Todd talk about the documentary on The Original Dream Team from 1992 that took the world by storm in the Barcelona Olympics. Could the Dream Team assembled now compete with the Dream Team of 1992. My thought is yes because nowadays the players are so athletic and so in shape, you wouldn't be able to keep up with them. The USA roster will begin their practices July 5-12 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Im not a LeBron hater, but...
In this segment, Mike Gill continues to maintain the stance in saying that he's not a LeBron hater, but rather indifferent. He could care less what LeBron does in his career. I and I'm certain many of you feel differently. I said it's the angle that Gill sometimes take when analyzing James the player. Ryan Messick has no qualms about it, he hates him. Does Mike Gill come off as a "hater" of LeBron James? You be the judge:
