Game 96 Open Thread: Phillies at Braves

Oh look it's the Braves again.

He's so dreamy.

Baseball is back! Yay! I'm totally excited about that.

But does that mean I have to pretend I'm not totally sick of the NL East? This is the third time the Phillies have played the Braves in the last month. In that time they've also played the Marlins twice and the Nationals once. The MLB scheduler is an evil, evil person.

But even though I'm bored to death of the NL East, and the Braves in particular, the Phillies are still playing them tonight. A.J. Burnett is taking on Ervin Santana in the first game after the All-Star Break. Let's see if the Phillies come out fighting.
