Ryan Howard and Chase Utley make cameo appearances in tonight’s episode of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” on FX.
As an NBC/GE/Comcast employee my advice is to DVR the show on FX for later viewing and watch whatever is on NBC in real time. It’s the sensible thing to do, obviously.
Todd Zolecki of MLB.com has seen an advanced screening of the Howard/Utley cameo and assures everyone it’s funny, which is no surprise given the previous time they (sort of) appeared in an episode.
Mac has outstanding taste, after all.
The Marlins announced on Tuesday afternoon that the club acquired pitcher Severino Gonzalez from the Phillies in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.
Gonzalez, 24, was designated for assignment last Thursday by the Phillies to make room for outfielder Michael Saunders on the 40-man roster. The right-hander has had a rough go of it in 66 innings in the majors, owning a 6.68 ERA and a 62/14 K/BB ratio. That ratio shows there’s some potential there and the Marlins will have about five years to try and discover it.
Andrew Baggarly of the Mercury News reports that the Giants have signed catcher Nick Hundley. It’s a major league deal worth $2 million.
Hundley, who is 33, but who seems like he’s been in the bigs for about 27 years, hit .260/.320/.439 with 10 homers in 83 games for the Rockies last season. Obviously he will be the backup given the presence of Buster Posey.
