Do I want to hope that Kyle Kendrick and the starting nine win tonight and prevent the Phillies from getting swept by the hated Cardinals? Or do I hope that they lose embarrassingly once again, perhaps forcing Ruben Amaro to finally see reality? The harsh, harsh light of reality?
I don't know. I hate seeing the Phillies lose. But I very much would like to see a Phillies without Michael Young and Jonathan Papelbon.
Kendrick will take on Lance Lynn tonight. Kendrick's ERA is slightly lower than Lynn's. At least right now. We'll see by the end of tonights game.
