Brand New Day: Royals at Phillies Game Thread, April 6, 2013

I'm so excited! I'm so excited! I'm so...scared! - USA TODAY Sports

Let's try this baseball thing again.

So we've had almost 24 hours to process (or drink away) our feelings about last night's game. Today is a brand new day, and there is a brand new game tonight. I'm going to be optimistic and positive. I can be that way because I'm not recapping tonight's game. Good luck, Phrozen!

This is me being positive about John Lannan, who will be starting his first Phillies game. John Lannan is not a zombie, so there is no danger of him eating the brains of any of his fellow baseball players. That's a good thing! Non-zombie Lannan will be opposed by Luis Mendoza. I have no information at this time as to the zombie status of Mendoza.

Will Mendoza snack on Eric Hosmer's brain in between innings? Discuss that and the game in the comments below.
