What Is Early Word? The Philadelphia Inquirer's experimental online "morning show", which began in Sept. 2005, went on hiatus in the summer of 2006, after a gradual shift to putting more of its content directly on Philly.com.
About the Host Peter Mucha, husband and father of two, grew up in Cherry Hill and is a lifelong Philly sports fan. He's been writing and editing for The Inquirer for 18 years.
His motto (at least for today): "If I'm not brief, give me grief."

Forget Manny Ramirez.Hello, Tom Gordon. Phils new closer Gordon is cheaper but older and less impressive than Billy Wagner. No net improvement there. And GM Pat Gillick ruled out the pricey Red Sox slugger. So what should the Phils do next? Still makes sense to trade Pat Burrell or Bobby Abreu for a top starter, especially if a future catcher, third baseman or closer is thrown in.
