Happ Insists He Can Pitch Game 3, if Needed

From Philly.com:

J.A. Happ walked into his manager’s office after yesterday’s game and insisted he could pitch tomorrow, despite the line drive that bruised his leg in the seventh inning.

“I’m OK,” he told Charlie Manuel.

“We’ll talk about it tomorrow,” Manuel said. […]

“It was just one of those things where right after it happens, you don’t have strength in it,” he said. “If I had [another] four or five minutes, it would not have been an issue.”

Manuel will have to decide today on who will start Game 3 tomorrow in Denver, where the temperature is expected to be in the 20’s. His choices are Happ, Joe Blanton and Pedro Martinez. Apparently, he’s leaning toward Blanton or Pedro.
