Maddon wants "to get moving" on procedure prep
Rays manager Joe Maddon planned to leave today's game early to drive back to Tampa to begin prep for his Wednesday morning colonoscopy.
"I want to get moving rather quickly,'' Maddon said, in the first of a couple one-liners about the pending procedure."I don't want to mess this up.''
Limited to fluids today, Maddon said he stopped at a Walgreen's in Port Charlotte and bought all the chicken broth they had.
"Anybody going in there to augment their soups or gravies, they're out of luck,'' Maddon said. "They're cleaned out.''
Maddon said he wanted to be at home when he started the pre-procedure process and rested, "so I can be spry for my big day tomorrow.''
