Oh, Hi Jayson: Phillies at Nationals Game Thread, April 12, 2011

New, 1148 comments

The Phillies take the band to Washington, DC tonight for game one of a three game series against the Washington Nationals. Joe Blanton squares off against junkballing righthander Livan Hernandez.

Bigger than that pitching matchup, however, is that this is the first time the Phillies will face their erstwhile, hirsute outfielder, Jayson Werth. Surely Nationals Park, the home away from home for so many well-traveled Phillies fans, will be a stew of conflicting emotions. Personally I wish him the best as long as it doesn't impact the Phillies in a bad way.

Discuss the game below.
