Phillies: Five Candidates to Join the Phillies Broadcast Team
2 of 5
If Kruk is not the answer, Brad Lidge would be a strong second choice for me. The hero of the 2008 World Series team, Lidge worked on MLB Network following his retirement.
Lidge has many of the traits Kruky brings to the booth: broadcast experience, personality, and a connection with the fans. I’m not sure the team has reached out to Lidge (who currently lives in Colorado and has younger children) but he would be on my list of finalists.
