Dubee Answers Your Questions

Pitching coach Rich Dubee answers questions from The Phillies Zone readers.

Dubee Answers Your Questions


Earlier this week I asked The Phillies Zone readers for any questions they had for Phillies pitching coach Rich Dubee.

I picked what I considered the 10 best.

I asked.

Dubee answered.

Unfortunately, only eight questions made the newspaper because of space (a question about Adam Eaton, and my favorite question got cut). If you want, you can listen to the entire interview below. But for those who don't have the time, here's my favorite question that got axed:

Question: Do you have any brothers? If you do and you formed a musical group what would you call yourself since the Doobie Brothers has been taken? – Loyd K., Lincoln, Ill.
Answer: First of all, I don’t have any brothers. I have a sister. Second of all, I don’t think we have a bit of musical ability in our family, so I don’t think I’d ever have to worry about that question.


Phil Sheridan remembers how Freddy Garcia, Jon Lieber and Eaton dragged down the Phillies last year. Garcia and Lieber are gone. He thinks it's time the Phillies leave Eaton behind.


This week's Phillies Report, which includes the top 10 pieces of Phillies memorabilia sold since 2000 and notes from yesterday's 9-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays in St. Petersburg.


Listen to the Q&A with Dubee.
