On the road: A limo ride with Phillies bullpen

On Sunday's episode of the MLB Network series "The Pen," the relief pitchers discuss whom they'd like to have dinner with.

In the second episode of "The Pen" -- the MLB Network reality series about life in the Phillies bullpen* -- pitchers Chan Ho Park, Chad Durbin, Clay Condrey, Brad  Lidge, Jack Taschner and Scott Eyre take a limo ride from San Diego to Los Angeles.

The episode, narrated by Mitch Williams, is on at 9 p.m. Sunday (6/21). MLB will be taping shows until the All-Star break.

In this preview, taped late June 4, we see Lidge chat up a woman at a drive-through** to plug the show and the guys discuss whom they'd like to have dinner with -- dead or alive. Names they toss out: John Wayne (Condrey), Ben Franklin (Taschner), Cy Young (Park) and Jesus (Durbin).

Clip is here.
