so on wip they are killing jeff stone about how dumb he was....ike reese proceeds to call him a "dumb ass"...so about a half hour later out of the blue his brother calls up and is pissed at ike

anyway he confirms that the tv and shrimp cocktail stories are 100% truth...but that the moon story isnt

anway his brother was a really cool guy and was nice about it and it was actually pretty sad how he was having to defend his brother...ike eventually apologized and stones brother accepted and all was well in the world

btw he also said one of the main reasons he didnt succeed in philly was john felske and how he benched him for weeks at a time after every mistake he made

it was pretty surreal and fascinating all at once...this is why everyone should listen to wip


fyi- jeff currently lives in missouri and works on his farm

oh for the youngins and non philie fans who may not know the infamous jeff stone stories


shrimp cocktail - true

jeff at a restaurant in center city with a couple players one of whom orders a shrimp cocktail...jeff is then asked if hed like one to which he responds "i dont drink"


television - true

jeff is in venezualua playign winter ball one year and buys a tv for his apartment...upon the completion of the season jeff returns home to the states and elaves the tv...when asked why he responds "cause it only go spanish channels"


moon - false (tho after the first two stories does it really matter?)

supposedly jeff asked a teammate in philly once "if the moon here was the same moon as in missouri"

Care to elaborate? Never heard those stories.

Always thought Stone would become a player similar to Vince Coleman. Too bad the mid to late 80's bums were such a mess.

I know the stories...but I still don't care about Jeff Stone's brother.

Me too. I love hearing stories like that, behind the scenes stuff and whatnot.

But to say everyone should listen to WIP because out of the blue a guy whose brother played for the Phillies 20+ years ago called in and put Ike on blast for calling his brother a dumbass is a little out there.

Either way, I don't miss WIP at all. When I got back to PA in 2003 that station was on 24x7, but I just grew tired of the garbage,
