Hamels v. Santana in a matchup of possibly the best lefthanders in the league (Sabathia the johnny-come-lately notwithstanding. This is the marquee pairing that should have happened much more this season but for some relatively poor rotation management on the part of the Phillies. As it is, it's only their second pairing, and it could hardly be at a more important juncture in the season.
Regardless, PHILLIES GOING FOR THE SWEEP that would tie them with the Mets. An improbable turn of events just a few days ago. Without a doubt the biggest game of the season so far, and it's going to be covered by the amazing Joe Morgan. What more can we ask for?
