    Thumbs up Wheels & Sarge Out As Phillies TV Announcers:

    PHILADELPHIA (AP/CBS) ó Longtime Philadelphia Phillies broadcaster Chris Wheeler is out after nearly four decades in the booth and Gary Matthews isnít returning as color analyst, the Phillies announced Wednesday.

    The team recently signed a new television contract with NBCUniversal and Comcast SportsNet thatís reportedly worth $2.5 billion over 25 years.

    The decision to replace Wheeler and Matthews came from the network, according to multiple sources. The Phillies said Wheeler and Matthews will continue to work with the organization in other roles.

    No more mute button!!!!! Wheels is gone!!!!! The bleeding has stopped!!!

    Harry and Whitey are smiling down from the heavens today!!!! Wheeler is gone, quite possibly the only good decision the Phills have made this off season. Anybody feeling sorry for old Chrissy boy shame shame shame!! don't forget good old Wheels wanted Whitey ousted in the early 90's he was a horrific announcer who just blabbed and blabbed!!! He made my ears bleed!!! good luck Sarge but GOOD RIDDANCE WHEELS!!!!!! the mute button will be off in 2014

    Can't say I'm shocked that Wittel is back for this thread. I believe all of this posts are bashing Wheels.

    Wheels and Sarge were bad, but it could be worse. Here's to it not being worse next season...

    Wheels & Sarge Out As Phillies TV Announcers:

    logged in as soon as i heard this wonderful news. they shouldve done away with tmac as well. Larry and Franzke should rightfully be the broadcast announcers. theyre bar FAR, better than the slop ive been listening to for 4 years.

    Don't like to cheer guys losing their job, but this was a long time coming.

    Read Franzke wants to stay on radio. Already talk that Ricky Bo is the front runner . Read it will be a Comcast employee
