Sports Bash Mailbag #1: The Future of Philly Sports
Welcome to the first edition of the Sports Bash Mailbag!
In the mailbag, we will answer you twitter questions, e-mail questions and more!
In the first edition of the Sports Bash mailbag series, we discuss some of the pressing topics around each of the Philadelphia sports teams.
A. The Phillies should be much better and maybe even a playoff contender by 2018, but still need to add a lot of offense and have some of this young pitching workout well for them. Definitely moving in the right direction, just think the Sixers will have more top-end talent.
A. This is inevitable to happen, most people who don't like what the Sixers are doing will surmise that Jerry Colangelo came in here, took over and fixed this "mess". In reality, Sam Hinkie's work was pretty much done, he added all the assets and was ready to take the step forward. Regardless if you think Hinkie was ready or not, he wasn't going to try to lose year-after-year - he did this to win, not to continue losing. So any success this team has moving forward, most likely will be done with Hinkie's assets.
A. I think this is an interesting question, to me, a healthy Joel Embiid is the best player of this group so i'll put him in the top spot. Jahlil Okafor is next, Simmons and Saric I think have similar type of styles, not flashy scorers, good all-around games, smart players. Noel is just never going to be a great scorer, which isn't a bad thing.
