Mike Ferrin and Jim Duquette of MLB Network Radio do some of the best interviews in the business, and they scored a coup recently by cornering the Phillie Phanatic at Philadelphia Phillies spring training to get his picks, sort of, in the NL East.
Reputed to be the top mascot in Major League Baseball, the Phanatic doesn't talk as a rule — and he doesn't utter a word to Ferrin and Duquette — but he does make a particularly funny noise when asked about the chances of the Miami Marlins. Only with that shnoz is it possible.
The Phanatic also seems to like the Phillies chances, if the kiss he gave Ferrin is any indication.
