The Phillies mercifully prepare to close out the interleague portion of their schedule this weekend in Philadelphia, facing off against the Tampa Bay Rays in a 2008 World Series rematch.
Joe Maddon, hot off being branded a "weird wuss" by Nationals' skipper Davey Johnson after the suspension of Rays pitcher Joel Peralta after pine tar was found in his glove, brings a third place Rays team to town and sends Big Game James Shields to the hill against Can't Win a Game Cliff Lee. Epic funs!
