A Gentleman's Retirement: Red Sox at Phillies Game Thread, May 19, 2012

Loading Scores

Tonight's the night when Pat Burrell, Philadelphia legend, returns to Citizens Bank Park to retire as a Phillie before the throngs at Citizens Bank Park, who never once booed him, no sir.

But there's also a baseball game. Joe Blanton goes for the Phillies against Jon Lester of the Red Sox, who's been less-than-lustrous so far in 2012.

Discuss the game below, and don't let your girl get Burrell'd.
