Schmidt Negotiating Return to TV Booth

Jimmy Rollins, Mike SchmidtMike Schmidt will be in camp throughout Spring Training working with Phillies hitters like Domonic Brown, Cody Asche and Darin Ruf.

After that he is expected to return to the Phillies’ broadcast booth, where he served last season as a TV color analyst during Sunday home games.

Schmidt’s role could expand this season to Saturday and Sunday home games. Schmidt’s agent is meeting with Comcast SportsNet representatives Monday to try to hash out a new contract.

“I’m already in town,” Schmidt said about broadcasting both weekend home games. “I actually come in town Wednesday and play golf a couple days with sponsors. Why not just do the game Saturday night? So all of them (Saturday home games) once they iron it out. The only thing that would stop it would be negotiating the fee.”

Comcast announced Thursday that Ben Davis has replaced Jamie Moyer as a color analyst in the TV booth. Schmidt and Davis will rejoin Tom McCarthy, Matt Stairs and Gregg Murphy on the TV team.

No Stairs on the weekends?

Can one hope!

So sorry that Jamie is gone. He is the only one who made sense…..except Schmidt of course.

Schmitty is worth the $100 fee for the Saturday game… I say they should pay him. Plus the free Schmitter sandwich and throw in a large soda of course!
