ESPN Dallas reporter called in to give us the latest with the Michael Young trade. Durrett says that it's highly likely that the ball is in Young's court whether or not he wants to waive his no-trade clause and head to Philadelphia. Durrett said Young wants to still play everyday and his role will be maximized in a Phillies uniform. Two years ago Young hit over .330 and Durrett said he'll have a better chance to get back to that play if he goes to the Phillies, rather than get minimal at bats with the Rangers.

Our injury expert Joe DeRosa breaks down the latest injuries effecting our Philadelphia sports teams.
Was in Nashville for the Winter Meetings and talked about the trade the Phillies made with the Twins for Ben Revere. Law said it's a move the Phillies had to make because they didnt have a "true" center fielder. Revere can't hit for power, but his job will be to basically hit the ball and run.

Sixers play tonight against the Celtics and Tom McGinnis called in to talk some hoops with Mike and Todd. T-Mac wonders if Doug Collins got in some of his players ears this week after the team got blitzed at home vs. Minnesota. The bench, in particular Spencer Hawes has really struggled the past few games and it used to be a strength of this team. Catch every Sixers game on 97.3 ESPN FM.
Full disclosure: All three of us attended West Virginia University if you didn;t already know. Mike Gill and Todd Ranck went to WVU a little earlier than I and Becht shared some funny stories about his time at WVU with Mike and Todd. On the Eagles: he wonders if it is coaching or the players? The coaches call the plays, but the players are out on the field and they have to make a play. Becht also thinks that Andy Reid won't be unemployed for long once he finally does get fired.
