So what kind of frustrating, thrilling, joyful, stressful, thrombo-inducing game will we get tonight?
It's a battle of "aces" on a hot night in Philadelphia, as John "High and tight, boo!" Lannan takes on Cole Hamels. A wary Delaware Valley will be watching Hamels to make sure there are no ill-effects from that Prince Fielder rocket he took off his shoulder last Thursday. Hopefully Cole will finish what he began last week, a groove that saw his strike out six in three innings.
Chris Coste is starting. So is Pedro Feliz.
13 runs two games in row. Is that lucky, or unlucky?
