Williams Falls Into New Job
It looks like Mitch Williams will follow in the footsteps of John Kruk and use Post Game Live as a stepping stone to a better job as he is set to join the brand new MLB Network. He joins another former Phillies lefty Dan Plesac on the network.
Williams was always fun to watch on Comcast. Like his predecessors Kruk and Marzano, Williams was not only a knowledgeable analyst and competent communicator, he was a passionate Phillies fan who always seemed to be in tune with the emotions of the fan. He was straight shooting and entertaining, and he is a big loss for Comcast.
But this isn't necessarily a loss for Phillies fans. It looks like he'll have a prominent role in the daily "MLB Tonight" show on the network (channel 280 on Comcast Harrisburg...) which should give us hours of Mitchy-Poo every week.
