Leftist Propaganda: Rockies at Phillies Game Thread, August 5, 2009

New, 184 comments

The Phillies look to rebound tonight against Rockies lefthander Jorge De La Rosa, who absolutely demolishes lefthanded batters. The solution, Charlie Manuel posits, is to continue to bat Chase Utley, Ryan Howard, and Raul Ibanez in the 3-4-5 spots in the batting order. (Watch them explode tonight and I'll look like a creep. It's a win-win for me, I guess).

J.A. Happ, in possibly his last start of the season depending on the Phillies' decision when Pedro Martinez is ready, goes for the home team.

Discuss the game below.
