Sportsbash Tuesday Interviews: Leonard Weaver Clarifies Tweets, Phillies Asst Gm Marti Wolever and Jaws on Tebow, Eagles
Called in to clarify his tweets directed towards the Eagles and Chip Kelly yesterday. Weaver had some strong comments towards Chip Kelly, on behalf of Mike Vick in a sense, and how the rookie head coach is handling the depth chart and starting QB heading towards training camp. Weaver said that his comments come from experience because in Seattle under Mike Holmgren he experienced some of the same things Vick and DeSean Jackson are experiencing. Follow Weaver on Twitter.
Phillies Assistant GM and Scouting director Marti Wolever called in to talk about the Phillies farm system and the MLB Draft over the weekend. The farm system is on the weaker side after trading away many of their prospects in major league deals, but Wolever sees a few prospects that he drafted at the top of the prospect list. Wolever urged listeners to be patient on a player like Darin Ruf because he's still trying to become a LF and it may turn out that he goes back to 1B in the majors. Wolever also talks about Jessie Biddle and when we can expect him up with the big club. Wolever has been in charge of the MLB drafting process since 2001.
ESPN's Ron Jaworski called in to talk about an event he will be hosting at Blue Heron Pines. 97.3 ESPN along with Jaws will be honoring all of our High School Athletes of the Week of The South Jersey Sports Report with Tyler Donohue. Jaws also talks about Eagles OTAs, Mike Vick's comments and whether or not hes disappointed Tim Tebow chose to sign with the Patriots and not his Soul!
