Wheels and Sarge relieved of their duties.

Of all the moves the Phillies should make, I never saw this one coming.

Re: Wheels and Sarge relieved of their duties.

I thought Wheels would be there forever. I think I heard he was with the Phil's for 38 years. I think Tom McCarthy should go too.

I remember listening to Wheels when he first started in about the mid/late 70's. About 1977 I think.

Never cared for wheels, he knew the game but I felt he acted like no one watching knew anything about baseball. Sarge I could tolerate but was nothing special. I believe it had to do with the new tv contract they signed.

Re: Wheels and Sarge relieved of their duties.

Wheels was a master at stating the obvious but you're right, he knew the game. McCarthy, on the other hand, still doesn't know when a ball is gonna leave the park. I'm watching on tv and can tell it's a homer. If he's OUTTA HERE, I won't be disappointed.

Re: Wheels and Sarge relieved of their duties.

I remember when he first started he was with Harry Kalas and Richie Ashburn. Wheels was kind of a side light who Kalas and Ashburn made good natured fun of if I recall. At that time he was kind of grating but Kalas and Ashburn kept him in his place. When he started he didn't take himself too seriously and the three were good together.

Never really listened to him as he got more air time as I had moved out of their radio coverage.
