Phillies Backup Catcher Has Contemplative Moment Facedown On Pittsburgh Bar

Journeyman catcher Dane Sardinha was seen decompressing like a champion at August Henry's early Sunday morning, which is typical behavior after anyone is forced to backstop a Kyle Kendrick emergency start. Even though Sardinha went hitless in the Phillies loss to the Pirates, he probably made solid wood contact later that evening if his forehead thumped that bar rail. Our tipster (Nick, we'll call him) says Sardinha was tipsy but I prefer to think he was privately texting Kendrick some thoughtful observations about his mechanics. Also: still surprised Sardinha has not been nicknamed "Dooch" during his tenure in Philadelphia. Make it happen, Meech.
