The Best Laid Plans...: Phillies at Nationals Game Thread, April 8, 2010

New, comments

The Phillies look to sweep the Nationals on a steamy afternoon in DC, and start 3-0 for the first time since Warren G. Harding was President, I'm guessing.

This was supposed to be Joe Blanton's first start of 2010, but thanks to his injury, we get Kyle Kendrick instead. You'll get what you get and like it! I hope young Kyle kicks nards today but I'm not optimistic.

It could be worse: Craig Stammen could be your third starter.

Your (depressing) game video: Roy Halladay gets rid of young Kyle Kendrick once and for all...
