Allen also got a chance to play with Super Bowl champion Russell Wilson, his locker was right next to his in Madison. Allen also talks about his long hair and the special reason why he keeps it long. Allen is listed at 333 pounds, but weighed in today at 329.

Doing pre and post game duties for the Angels is Tim Salmon. Tuesday and Wednesday of this week the Phillies will be hosting Mike Trout and the Angels. Salmon called in to talk about his up close experiences with Trout and just what kind of player he really is. "With Trout, there is production every single night...you take that for granted." Salmon also thinks that if Trout played for the Yankees or a team on the east coast, he would have been MVP last season. He's probably right.
Covering the Phillies for Daily News, called in on his off day! to talk about the Phillies 2/3 weekend against the Mets.

Also on the outfield production and what can be done to fix that part of the team along with the bench.
