Heres what we now need to pay attention to.

The Boston Globe reported that the owner of the Popeyes Chicken & Biscuits, Jon Stilianos, confirmed that the pitchers and other players on the 2011 team were regulars at his place, but he wouldnt say how regular. He said the big lugs usually picked up their boxed meals on the way to the park, and were always pleasant to the employees.

Popeyes Chicken & Biscuits describes itself as a leading quick-service chicken restaurant chain popular for its Cajun-style fried chicken, biscuits, po'boys, chicken strips and other delicious menu items.
