Our House: Royals at Phillies Game Thread, April 5, 2013

USA TODAY Sports

Oh, Toto, there's no place like home.

The Phillies are finally home. After approximately 7,000 spring training games in Florida, the extremely odd On-Deck series, and an opening series in the unwelcoming and unpleasant city of Atlanta, the Phillies today play their first 2013 regular season game in Citizens Bank Park. It's one of my favorite places on the planet. Chase Utley will be there. Jimmy Rollins will be there, too. So will Domonic Brown, Ryan Howard, Ben Revere, and some other guys, too. Kyle Kendrick will also be there, as he is the starting pitcher.

You have one mission, Kyle: WIN.

Now that the Astros are in the American League and there are an odd number of teams in the AL and NL, there's interleague play all the time. All the time! How delightful! The Phillies usher in this new era of...um...this new era of something by playing the Kansas City Royals. Kyle Kendrick faces off against Wade Davis, and the internet assures me that's a real person.

Enjoy the game and each other's company in the comments below.
