I'm not sure what I want the Phillies to do tonight.

GO TEAM VENTURE!

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?

1. Yes
2. No
3. EEEEEEEEEEEEEE
4. *explodes*

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.

Today's Lineups

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.
