Deflating Wheels

2 Mar

Well, it happened. Someone started, a plea to fire Chris Wheeler from the Phillies announcing team. It's not the nicest looking website(nor is this site) but the point behind it is that the fans don't want Wheeler, Kalas doesn't want Wheeler, so GET RID OF WHEELER.

A little excerpt says it all:

"Maybe my math is fuzzy here, but try to follow me. Harry Kalas enjoys working with Larry Andersen, the fans enjoying listening to Larry Andersen. Harry Kalas does not like Chris Wheeler, the fans do not like Chris Wheeler. So what does that equal? Six innings of Harry and Wheels, and none of Harry and L.A., and a high chance that the greatest announcer this town has ever seen, retires at the end of the year. "
