The Daily Numbers: 2, as in Day 2 of the great SEPTA regional rail slowdown. Transit officials say today could be even worse than yesterday because more people are expected to try to access the system returning to work after the long holiday weekend.

788 trains that normally run on the system during the day.

560, how many it ran yesterday.

65,000 people who use regional rails every day to get into the city.

35-40,000 tops who will be able to use the system in its reduced state.

Zach Eflin certainly seems to have recovered from that shaky first outing. Since then his ERA is 2.03

I Don’t Get It: A guy faces a DUI charge in Upper Darby. He had 3 young kids in the car with him at the time. I don’t get it.

Today’s Upper: Kudos to SEPTA commuters who kept their cool on Day 1 of the regional rail slowdown. It likely will get worse today.

Quote Box: “It’s messing up our whole routine.”
