Let's forget about last night. Last night was no good, so let's just forget about it. Forget about the horrible lineup position of Carlos Ruiz and Freddy Galvis, forget about the decision to send Marlon Byrd home from third with no outs, forget about the anemic offense. Tonight is a new game! A clean slate! So many more chances for things to go horribly, embarrassingly wrong! Just kidding.

Today's Lineups

TORONTO BLUE JAYS PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES
Jose Reyes - SS Ben Revere - CF
Melky Cabrera - LF Carlos Ruiz - C
Jose Bautista - RF Chase Utley - 2B
E. Encarnacion - 1B Ryan Howard - 1B
Juan Francisco - 3B Marlon Byrd - RF
Erik Kratz - C Domonic Brown - LF
Colby Rasmus - CF Freddy Galvis - SS
Steve Tolleson - 2B Cody Asche - 3B

See, now that's better! Chooch is batting second! It's a small victory, but a victory nonetheless. Let's celebrate that small victory!
