Game 79 Open Thread: Braves at Phillies

The Braves are back for four games. Try to hide your excitement.

He's handsome even when he's covered in walk-off pie.

For the love of God, the Braves again? Again? I know how well it went last time, but you know and I know that it's not likely go that way again. I mean, maybe it will. But I don't have high hopes, considering that they just split a four-game series with the Marlins.

But hey, it's baseball and it's the Phillies. Their bullpen is stellar, Chase Utley hit a walk-off home run last night, and there are still a lot of baseball games to play. Anything could happen!
