Veterans of Psychic Wars: Phillies at Diamondbacks Game Thread, May 10, 2013

Tough guy. - Eric Hartline-US PRESSWIRE

Wherein the author will not blame you for sleeping this one off.

Woof, losses, huh? Woof, 2-1 losses, huh? Woof, 2-1 losses that drop Cole Hamels' totally relevant pitching record to 1-5. Woof, 2-1 losses capped with a Heath Bell save, huh?

Frankly, I'm starting to wonder if it was worth taking an early summer trip to Arizona at all. Fortunately, while the Phillies actively have to deal with the scrapes and bruises to both their egos and their bodies after the fairly deflating loss last night, we only need to reset our minds to the new blank sheet of a fresh baseball game. What's that you say? That's actually totally difficult to do with a straight, earnest face? Yeah, well....

In all seriousness, this is a rough one for ratings, I'm sure: coming off a loss, Tyler Cloyd pitching in Halladay's vacated spot, and a Friday night filled with all sorts of debaucherous alternatives. But we're all basement-dwelling nerds diehards here, and we'll suffer through together. As a family. So suit up, soldier, and discuss your deployment to the Ennui Front below.
