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."

Smith: "You find it almost impossible to care any longer. Time and again, the Phils are a day late and a dollar short. Time and again, they leave you exasperated, wondering what they're doing." Mucha: "Uh, I'm willing to cut the new GM some slack. Let's wait and see what he does. Sure, it's annoying to see team president Dave Montgomery inject himself into player decisions, like negotiating with Billy Wagner. But Gillick is bound to have more clout than Wade, who still almost assembled a playoff team."
