It’s a gorgeous day in Philadelphia…couldn’t actually be much nicer. Here’s hoping we head home on a positive note – with a Game 2 victory.
Meanwhile, for those of you who think Andre Ethier is only willing to try exotic foods for Dining with ‘Dre, here’s something that might surprise people. Each of the last three days, he’s “dined” at Jimmy John’s, a local sandwich shop. How do I know this? Because I was in there today when he stopped in. I had never heard of it before one appeared in Bloomington, Indiana, where I went to college. It became a favorite of mine and when I stumbled upon it today, I had to grab a Turkey Tom. I guess Andre is a fan of the Italian Night Club.
On a much more somber note, our sincere condolences go out to Charlie Manuel, whose mother passed away today. With all the emotions he’s already going through in the postseason, I can’t even fathom dealing with something like this on top of it. As we say, once a Dodger, always a Dodger and our hearts go out to him and his family.
Here’s tonight’s lineup for Game 2 (which Joe Beimel will read on FOX)
