Game 89 Open Thread: Phillies at Brewers


Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Well, that series with the Pirates was certainly invigorating! In a "how much bad baseball can you watch your favorite team play" kind of way. I mean, being force fed bad baseball through my eyeballs has allowed me to really appreciate what I have in life. I called everyone I know and told them I love them. I ate a muffin outdoors this morning. I took all my most important possessions and put them in a bag and I carry them with me at all times. I drank all the alcohol in my house and then I wrote my will. I hope Trev enjoys macrame cats, because that's what he's getting. (That reminds me, I should probably buy some macrame cats.)

But the Phillies have now moved on from Pittsburgh, as all sane and sensible people do (YEAH I SAID IT), and will be playing the next four games in Milwaukee.

Today's Lineups

Ben Revere - CF Rickie Weeks - 2B
Andres Blanco - SS Ryan Braun - RF
Chase Utley - 2B Jonathan Lucroy - C
Ryan Howard - 1B Carlos Gomez - CF
Marlon Byrd - RF Aramis Ramirez - 3B
Cody Asche - 3B Khris Davis - LF
Domonic Brown - LF Mark Reynolds - 1B
Cameron Rupp - C Jean Segura - SS
Cole Hamels - LHP Marco Estrada - RHP

The Phillies have their best chance for a win tonight with Marco Estrada on the mound for the Brewers. He has by far the highest ERA of their five starters, at 4.94 over 17 starts. With Cole Hamels on the mound tonight, they should take advantage. Come on, Phillies! Win! Please!
