Maddon's off-day plans: A colonoscopy



Rays manager Joe Maddon has big plans for Wednesday's off-day: A colonoscopy.

"First one. I'm very excited about this,'' Maddon said. "I've only heard about it. One of those life experiences you must go through as a young male or anybody actually.''

Maddon, 59, plans to manage Tuesday's game in Fort Myers then head up to Tampa for the prep, have the procedure on Wednesday morning and rejoin the team Thursday in Bradenton.

"It's one of those things you have to have done,'' Maddon said. "Why walk away from it, why turn your back to it?''

Asked if would go the Katie Couric rate and have his procedure televised or taped, Maddon said: "If they want to record it, I'll be asleep so whatever they want to do. I'm sure they'll take full liberty.''

Since Maddon expects to be fasting most of Tuesday, he has plans for a big dinner on Wednesday.
