The Phillies play their first welcome "meaningless" game in 15 years today as the regular season comes to a close, and presumably most of the regulars will be spending their Sunday afternoon the same way I will: hungover and watching a sporting event.

Kyle Kendrick, bound for the Florida Instructional League and Changeup 101 after the game, gets a chance to end 2008 on a high note and possibly put himself in the mix for the playoff roster in a later series, should the team advance. The lineup also might feature catcher Lou Marson's major league debut, Greg Golson's first start, and Tadahito Iguchi drawing a loud round of cheers. All good stuff.
