Also, they had him on the show on 7/9. You can listen to the interview at the Score's website.
Bernstein's a Sox fan. His attitude wouldn't be at all out of place on this board. To suggest they don't like him simply because he's a Sox prospect doesn't ring true at all.
The bottom line is if I called B&B and compared Phegley to say, Russell Martin, I'd be laughed off the air and told Phegley has no prayer of ever becoming a .250 hitter who averages about 15 home runs in a season like Martin.
That's their schtick. That's who they are.
No thanks, I'll take a pass on the Score's website.
