So in case you haven't heard, the Phillies (5-6) clubhouse is a disaster area filled with cocky primadonnas and easily distracted, exciteable boys who can't win ballgames. Nonetheless, here they are, opening a three game set at home versus the Milwaukee Brewers (4-8).
This Brewers club bears some resemblance to the one the Phillies defeated in last year's NLDS. Notably, CC Sabathia is gone. But the key lineup cogs remain in place, with superstars Prince Fielder and Ryan Braun leading the attack.
Last year, the Brewers killed lefties... so who better to start tonight than Jamie Moyer, who absorbed the Phillies' only defeat at the hands of the Brewers in last year's NLDS. The Phillies will be facing Manny Parra.
