Maddon's request: Plantain recipes
Having paid homage to closer Fernando Rodney by hanging 27 plantains around his locker before Tuesday's game, Rays manager Joe Maddon wants to keep the plantains around the clubhouse.
So now, Maddon wants recipies.
"The plantains are on a roll,'' Maddon said. "We need some really good plantain recipies rolling in please. I really want to get more efficient and proficient in making plantains. We're looking for some recipes via Twitter, email, whatever. Just send your reciples in, I'm looking forward to that.''
Rodney is a big fan of plantains, and in the World Baseball Classic (playing for his native Domincian Republic team) and earlier this season, took to carrying a "magic" plantain with him even onto the bench.
So if you have a recipe, you can post it here.
