Game 23 Open Thread: Phillies at Diamondbacks

Be careful! Diamondbacks are snakes, you know. They hiss and slither and bite and constrict things, probably! Right? Is that what snakes do?

I want a high five from Chase Utley so bad. A high five, and maybe more...

The consensus amongst, um, most people right now is that the Diamondbacks aren't very good. If you ask those same people about the Phillies, they'd probably say similar things, though.

But as John Stolnis said today, the Phillies need to be careful of these probably not great Diamondbacks. They have a history lowering their level of play to wherever there opponents are currently playing, and then beating them at their own game. By losing.

Today's Lineups

PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS
Ben Revere - CF Gerardo Parra - RF
Jimmy Rollins - SS Martin Prado - 3B
Chase Utley - 2B Paul Goldschmidt - 1B
Ryan Howard - 1B Miguel Montero - C

Domonic Brown - LF A.J. Pollock - CF
Carlos Ruiz - C Cliff Pennington - SS
Cody Asche - 3B Tony Campana - LF

Mmm, a Robausto Carnandez start. Always interesting.
