Do you want the Phillies to win tonight? Or are you scared that if they win tonight, it will usher in a period of even worse play than we just experienced? Or are you completely paralyzed with indecision, afraid to move or even blink as it could CHANGE EVERYTHING FOREVER?
I have a hard time not wanting the Phillies to win. I always want them to win, even when I want them to lose to get a better draft position. But the last time they won a bunch of games in a row, they went on to lose 13 of their next 16 games or something equally horrifying. I recapped most of those games, SO NEEDLESS TO SAY I'M JUST A LITTLE SCARRED.
The good news is that the Phillies are helping me out a little bit.
|PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES||MILWAUKEE BREWERS|
|Ben Revere - CF||Carlos Gomez - CF|
|Jimmy Rollins - SS||Jean Segura - SS|
|Chase Utley - 2B||Scooter Gennett - 2B|
|Ryan Howard - 1B||Aramis Ramirez - 3B|
|Marlon Byrd - RF||Khris Davis - LF|
|Cody Asche - 3B||Lyle Overbay - 1B|
|Domonic Brown - LF||M. Maldonado - C|
|Cameron Rupp - C||Logan Schafer - RF|
|R. Hernandez - RHP||Kyle Lohse - RHP|
They're putting Roberto Hernandez up against Kyle Lohse. Either Hernandez needs to have a really great night, or Kyle Lohse needs to have a really bad one. Stranger things have happened, that's for damn sure.
Alright, Universe. Roll the dice.
