Just What We Need: Phillies at Mets Game Thread, September 17, 2012

New, 385 comments

Exactly what the Phillies need after a brutal and weird weekend in Houston: A game against the brutal and weird R.A. Dickey, who is looking to make a run for the Cy Young Award with a couple more solid starts down the stretch. Although the Phillies have done alright against Dickey this year (losing a game against him in April but collecting nine hits, and a no-decision in July in which the knuckleballer allowed five runs and 11 hits in seven innings), no one relishes facing Dickey this year. No one.

Cliff Lee will look to get the Phillies back in the win column and, improbably, back in the Wild Card hunt.

Discuss the game below.
