Davis, Stocker Finalists to Replace Moyer

ben davisIt has been more than two months since Jaime Moyer decided not to return as a Phillies broadcaster.

Comcast SportsNet is close to naming his replacement.

Sources said this week the end of the search is near and the two finalists are CSN analyst Ben Davis and Pac-12 color commentator Kevin Stocker.

Davis, the second overall pick in the 1995 First-Year Player Draft out of Malvern Prep, has been working pregame and postgame Phillies shows on Comcast. He played seven seasons in the big leagues. Stocker played eight seasons in the big leagues, including five (1993-97) with the Phillies. He finished his second season with the Pac-12 Network.

Davis or Stocker will join Tom McCarthy, Matt Stairs and Gregg Murphy on TV with Larry Andersen, Scott Franzke and Jim Jackson on radio.

Ben Davis, please. He’s not afraid to tell it like it is. Good dude.

The biggest travesty is Tom McCarthy. How is he still employed???

Sorry the headline didn’t say, “Davis, Stocker to replace TMac and mumble mouth Stairs.” I can’t compare Stocker with Davis cause no one has played a Stocker audition clip. I have enjoyed Ben’s candid appraisal of the 2014 team’s shortcomings, while the other Comcast personalities. less Ricky Bo, kept rah-raying to the company line. So my vote would be for Ben only because I haven’t heard what Kevin sounds like. Sorry Kev!

It seems Comcast does not appreciate anyone with baseball acumen . Also please tell Stairs he is in the United States – enough of the Canadian references . I do like Tom McCarthy – there just IS TOO MUCH of him , EVERY INNING OF EVERY GAME including spring training games that are broadcast . Give him and the fans a break – rotate someone else in the booth for 3 innings – even HARRY had a break..

Hi, its good article on the topic of media print, we all be aware of media is a fantastic source of data.
