RIP Johnny Podres

The man played a huge role on the 1993 Phillies, working with Schilling, Danny Jackson, Mulholland, Tommy Greene, David West, and even Ben Rivera.

He was also pitching coach for the Twins, teaching Frank Viola the "circle change", which helped him win a Cy Young and the 1987 World Series MVP.

We loved "the Pod" here and our local sports columnist has lots of funny, old days stories about Podres.

Man, that's too bad. He was a great guy. And a great Dodger. He'll always be one of the greatest Dodgers to pitch for the team. It's sad to see the Boys of Summer go like this. HOFer Duke Snider is just about the only Dodger star still alive from that era. That's too bad.
