[Justin] Duchscherer, [Ervin] Santana and Angels reliever Francisco Rodriguez will be on the same chartered flight for New York after the game. Rodriguez recorded his 37th save, an ongoing major-league record for most saves before the break.
When the plane lands, I understand that Francisco Rodriguez leaps out of his seat and dances around the cabin like he's never successfully completed a flight before.
As I type this, I'm watching the Major League Futures Game (A's connection: Cliff Pennington has just struck out and Tervor Cahill is on the mound to start the second inning), where Davey Johnson is managing the team made up of U.S. players. The minor leaguers are wearing the caps of their Major League affiliates. In Johnson's case, he's sporting a New York Mets cap. Play-by-play man Gary Thorne informs us that it's the first time Davey Johnson has worn a Mets cap since leading the team to the '86 championship. Erin Andrews repeats this little tidbit of info in her in-dugout interview with Johnson a few moments later.
Presumably, Johnson went capless in 1987, 1988, and 1989. I had no idea.
