Brown: Ryne Sandberg claims he got sick from hamburger at Citi Field

Mom, I’m coming home they’re throwing me sliders.

The rivalry between the Philadelphia Phillies and New York Mets took a left turn down the long intestine Tuesday when Philly manager Ryne Sandberg told reporters why he’s been feeling ill. His team recently played a three-game series at Citi Field in New York, which also is home to a Shake Shack stand in the outfield. If you’re a fan of the food there — mmm, Black & White shake — don’t read this:

Matt Gelb: Ryne Sandberg got food poisoning from a Shake Shack burger. Lost six pounds in two days. My entire world is shaken.

“Food poisoning” is a serious charge, Ryno. Legalities and such. But “six pounds” also sounds like a tough deal. Imagine the local reaction if some out-of-town manager said he got sick from a bad cheese steak he ate at Citizens Bank Park in Philly. ... Well, there probably would be applause. Never mind.
