    Hope this wasn’t Maddons decision…millions of fans voted for Longo….
    He needs to be seen…a cameo appearance, and out would have been fine, see if he shows his face tonight or home in Cal. surfing?
    What can it hurt….his finger ….his toe…what??

    I wonder why Pena didn’t hit for Morneau in the 9th, then go in at 1B???

    Longo sitting was a great thing for the hammies. He needed a few days. Plenty of baseball left.
