like steve santarsiero who will say anything to win an election? after claiming credit for passing universal background checks for all gun purchases, "santarsiero admitted in an interview that he didn't write pennsylvania's
gun safety law." his campaign brags about his accomplishments, but "in fact, he has failed in 54 attempts to get any legislation on the books." we just cant trust steve santarsiero. i'm shaughnessy naughton, and i approve this message because we deserve better.

fans in town are still trying to absorb the trade the eagles made yesterday to move up to the second spot in the draft. still looks likely the quarterback will be carson wentz that will be the quarterback the rams don't take and he falls to the eagles. we know why the eagles wanted the quarterback why did cleveland not want the quarterback witness second pick? >> we understand that risk in moving back we may have passed on a quarterback that will go on to have a great career in this league. but we felt like for the additional picks that we were able to acquire we were much better position to build our roster moving forward. >> the phillies off tonight. milwaukee tomorrow. checking in to a fm face. let's go to chicago. remember jimmy rollins, different number, different uniform, foul ball in the game. it's a foul ball jimmy rollins hits a fall ball and caught by the fan. great job. all right. the next pitch fall ball again. and guess who gets the baseball that same guy but watch what he
