Phillies notes: Romero injures calf, admits DL is likely | The News Journal |
Whenever Kyle Kendrick lays a turd, someone else seems to get hurt, resulting in his continued rosterdom. Zagurski or Stutes likely to be called up, in about that order of likelihood. Well, Oswalt's okay, so it seems.

Stanley 'Doc' Glenn, 84, Negro leagues catcher | Philadelphia Inquirer | 04/19/2011

"We would play at old Shibe Park," Mr. Glenn recalled. "And the Phillies and Athletics would draw 10,000-12,000 people for a doubleheader, which would be on Sunday. We would have the ballpark - they would rent the ballpark to us for Monday night games - and we'd draw 30,000 people."

RIP, Doc.

This employee said the night Dykstra was brought in, he cursed at doctors, spit on a nurse and punched hospital equipment. "In the emergency room, it was abusive," the hospital employee said.
