Game 31 Open Thread: Blue Jays at Phillies

OW OW OW CAN SOMEONE PLEASE GET JAYSON NIX TO STOP BITING MY FOOT, THANK YOU. - Mitchell Leff

Tonight's goal: do better than last night.

Loading Scores

Let's forget about last night. Last night was no good, so let's just forget about it. Forget about the horrible lineup position of Carlos Ruiz and Freddy Galvis, forget about the decision to send Marlon Byrd home from third with no outs, forget about the anemic offense. Tonight is a new game! A clean slate! So many more chances for things to go horribly, embarrassingly wrong! Just kidding.
