Phil Coke discusses Valverde's return on Sirius XM Radio

Phil Coke was on MLB Network Radio's "First Pitch" show on Sirius XM on Thursday morning, talking with hosts Todd Hollandsworth and Jim Memolo about Wednesday's return of Jose Valverde.

An excerpt on the fan reaction:
"You know what? They were very happy to see Papa back. Very happy. Because look at it by the numbers. He’s the most consistent guy getting a save at the end of the game in the last three years, by the sheer fact that he’s got more than anybody else. The fans recognize that, and understand that. They’re happy to see that he’s back to continue on with the work he was doing."

As an observer, there were mostly cheers for Valverde from the Comerica crowd, but there were some boos, too. 

Are you buying what Phil is selling about universal acceptance?

Here's the rest of the interview:
