Rish Returns

Day baseball on Wednesday.


Jon Rish in the sub's chair for Dave O'Brien.

Rish is consistently in the moment, on the pitch and knowledgeable about the game. I don't know much about him, but he is apparently from the Philly area, since he had a lot of local lore to offer. For example, he correctly characterized Veterans' Stadium as perhaps the worst MLB facility ever.

For my money, Rish is a cut above Dale Arnold as sub #1 for Dave O'Brien.

[update] memo to Cole Hamels: maybe the Phillies are not quite the match for the BOREDSOX

just sayin'
