True to his word, Charlie Manuel is sitting Domonic Brown against a lefty the day after he went 2/4 with a homer and a double. But it could be for the better, as this isn't just any lefty they are facing today. It's none other than His Royal Odiousness, John Lannan. Utley, Howard, and Ibanez are all in the lineup today, so expect at least one one of them to be plunked.
Roy Oswalt gets the ball for the Phillies. Hey, maybe he will remember how to get swinging strikes.
