Davis, Stocker are finalists to join Phillies' booth
PHILADELPHIA -- It has been more than two months since Jamie Moyer decided not to return as a Phillies broadcaster. Comcast SportsNet is close to naming his replacement.
Sources said this week the end of the search is near, and the two finalists are CSN analyst Ben Davis and Pac-12 color commentator Kevin Stocker.
Davis, the second overall pick in the 1995 First-Year Player Draft out of Malvern Prep, has been working pregame and postgame Phillies shows on Comcast. He played seven seasons in the big leagues. Stocker played eight seasons in the big leagues, including five (1993-97) with the Phillies. He finished his second season with the Pac-12 Network.
Davis or Stocker will join Tom McCarthy, Matt Stairs and Gregg Murphy on TV, with Larry Andersen, Scott Franzke and Jim Jackson on radio.
