    From The Philadelphia Inquirer

    Sweeny Murti, who covers the Yankees for WFAN radio in New York, is the lead candidate to become the Phillies’ new pregame and postgame host on radio broadcasts. Murti, talented and likable, is a native of the Harrisburg area.

    Philly’s gain would be New York’s loss. Murti does a great job covering the Yanks.

      Amen to that – I’ve been listening to Sweeney ever since he was doing 20s for the FAN. He always struck me as an intelligent and concientous reporter. If he takes off for Philly, I’ll miss his take on the Yanks but it’ll be nice to see a familiar face on local TV.

      Why couldn’t Kim Jones be the lead candidate and let us keep Sweeny.

      I’d miss Sweeny. You get calm, pragmatic answers from him when fans or radio hosts are urging people to jump off bridges because of 2 game losing streaks.

      I hope he gets the position if that’s what he wants.

      Murti did a fine job doing the 20’s for the FAN and adding his own biting views at times, but once he started covering the Yankees from the clubhouse…complete twaddle ensued as he quickly became a pratboy for Cashman/Yanks.

      Free buffetitis strikes again!
