Can the Phillies leave Canada yet? Can they go? Is it over? Whatever it takes to forget last night's clusterfuck meltdown. Of course, they head to New York next, so the nightmare isn't over yet.

Today's Lineups

Tony Gwynn Jr. - CF Jose Reyes - SS
Jimmy Rollins - DH Melky Cabrera - LF
Chase Utley - 2B Jose Bautista - RF
Ryan Howard - 1B E. Encarnacion - 1B

Surprise us, Phillies! Aim for competence! That's all we ask for. That's how low our expectations are. We're not even asking for a win. Just competent baseball. Competence is the new success. And by "success," I actually mean "infinite sadness".

I can hear my mother in my ear right now. "THINK POSITIVE, LIZZIE. JUST THINK POSITIVE!" I love you, Momma, but you haven't seen these Phillies.
