This is where the rubber meets the road, folks. The Braves are in town for a four-game series, and the Phillies have a chance to make a dent in the NL East standings and in their own record. The Braves are no Marlins -- this is going to be tough. I'd say something positive, something encouraging, but every time I do that the Phillies seem to stop being good long enough to make me say negative things, and then they're good again and the cycle begins anew.
Not this time! I am saying nothing! Look at me, saying nothing. I could say nothing all night long! Ok, I'll say just one thing: beat the stupid Braves. Beat them. Beat them now.
Robausto Carnandez (I like this nickname and I'm sticking with it) and Ervin Santana start tonight for the Phillies and Braves, respectively. Discuss the game in the comments below, and go Phillies go.
