What Happened to Scott Graham?

What Happened to Scott Graham?

Harry the K is back in the booth with a three year deal.  Former Phillie Gary Matthews will be joining the crew as well.  What I, and a number of my readers, found interesting was the fact that Scott Graham will not be back.  I'd say my opinion of Scott Graham in the Phillies booth was close to indifferent with a slight leaning towards enjoyment.  What is interesting though is the lack of explanation.  Phillies beat writer Todd Zolecki, who usually has plenty to say, kept rather mum about Graham's departure.

Scott Graham will not be back.

That's it.  That's all we got.  Leave it up to the Phillies organization to give us zero reasoning.  I guess we should come to expect these things.

That Turkey Hill Phillies Graham Slam ice cream flavor just isn't going to be the same.

Graham was on Sports Talk 950 this evening with Jody MacDonald.  Graham is understandably sad to go.  He's been with the Phils for about 15 years.  He's been through some rough patches and now that things appear to be on the up swing, the Phils send him packing.

White House communications director criticized for citing Joe Paterno quote about honor

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- President Donald Trump's new communications director is getting sacked on social media for quoting Joe Paterno while making a point about honor and dignity.

Anthony Scaramucci mentioned the late Penn State football coach's oft-cited line "act like you've been there before" during a CNN interview Thursday about his push to stop leaks to the press.

Penn State fired Paterno in 2011 over his handling of child sex abuse allegations against former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky. A university-commissioned investigation concluded Paterno and others hushed up the allegations for fear of bad publicity.

Paterno, one of college football's winningest coaches, died of lung cancer in January 2012 at 85. He was never charged with a crime.

When Paterno died, Scaramucci tweeted he'd met the coach twice and considered him an "honorable man."
