SAY PHILLY CHEESE: MLB.com's Todd Zolecki cited sources as saying that Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia has been speaking to former MLBers Jamie Moyer and Matt Stairs "about joining Tom McCarthy in the broadcast booth" for Phillies games this season. The network "originally planned to hire just one color commentator to replace Chris Wheeler and Gary Matthews." But those plans "apparently changed following strong auditions by both." An official announcement "could come as early as the end of the week" (MLB.com, 2/5).
TAKING SOME TIME: In Philadelphia, Mike Bertha reported ESPN Radio 97.5 Philadelphia "has suspended host Mike Missanelli in light of homophobic emails he sent to a listener who has reportedly been a consistent problem" (PHILLY.com, 2/4).
