Annnnnd We're Back: Phillies at Rockies Game Thread, July 13, 2012

Tonight's game marks the official start to the unofficial second half of the baseball season. The Phillies have to come out swinging, lest the team be reduced to a smoldering pile of rubble with a "For Sale" sign on it. Ok, not really. But the Phillies could certainly use a win right out of the gate to quiet some of the chatter that inevitably results from all the midseason/All-Star Break navel-gazing. And building some momentum wouldn't be the worst thing, would it?

And who better to take the ball for the Phillies than newly minted one-game winner Cliff Lee! He squares off against Christian Friedrich, who [insert interesting fact here]. Fascinating, right!?

I invite you to discuss the game below.
