    We will carry it live on Sports Radio 610....Drayton is supposed to be there, so I'm guessing Phil or Tim is stepping down at the end of the season...but we'll bring it to you

    Why not wait until the season is over?

    Methinks a trade is afoot.

    Thanks for the report, Matt. Any word on replacements? I hope Cecil Cooper gets a shot, he deserves it.

    WOW!!!


    I love how MattJ hooks us up before the announcement went out on the radio!

    This was posted at 1:17 I heard it on the radio at 1:23!

    To bad they won't be replaced by anyone worth anything.

    That is just crazy! Phil took the team to the World Series. What more could you want without the New York Yankees payroll?
