Egg croissant, anyone?
Is Mike Sweeney a great teammate, or what?
He walked into the clubhouse this morning carrying two large brown bags stuffed with breakfast croissants. He handed them out to the players sitting around a table and others sitting in front of their lockers.
Third baseman Matt Tuisasosopo, who religiously sticks to a specific breakfast every day, made an exception on this day.
“I have a Cinnamon-raisin bagel, put some peanut butter and honey on it, have a strawberry yogurt and either a orange or apple juice. That’s what I have every day. I used to have waffles every morning here, but I have to stay away from them now. They aren’t good for you. I’m at 225-226 pounds and want to stay there.”
