Game 35 Open Thread: Phillies at Mets

Sometimes you're the squirrel, and sometimes you're the nut.

Baseball can be so exciting. Last night, Yu Darvish took a no-hitter into the ninth inning yet again, and yet again he lost it! That's heart pounding, adrenaline pumping baseball!

And sometimes the game you're watching is 4 1/2 hours long and the teams are locked in a whatever the boring opposite of a battle is. But hey, how bad was it, really? The Phillies won, after all.

Today's Lineups

Ben Revere - CF Juan Lagares - CF
Jimmy Rollins - SS Daniel Murphy - 2B
Chase Utley - 2B David Wright - 3B
Ryan Howard - 1B C. Granderson - RF
