Game 118 Open Thread: Mets at Phillies

The Phillies are still playing games, so we're back with you today.

I'm imagining their inner monologues and it's pretty funny.

Last night's game was a pain in the ass.

11 innings, five hits, and a 2-1 loss to the Mets. That's four hours well spent. HAR HAR HAR get it? Because it wasn't. I'm using sarcasm!

Seriously Phillies please win today.

Today's Lineups

Curtis Granderson - RF Ben Revere - CF
Daniel Murphy - 2B Jimmy Rollins - SS
David Wright - 3B Chase Utley - 2B
Lucas Duda - 1B Ryan Howard - 1B
Travis d'Arnaud - C Grady Sizemore - RF
Matt den Dekker - LF Domonic Brown - LF
Juan Lagares - CF Wil Nieves - C
Wilmer Flores - SS Cody Asche - 3B
Zack Wheeler - RHP Kyle Kendrick - RHP

Oh God it's Kyle Kendrick. Um, I mean, uh, yay! It's Kyle Kendrick! (Yeah I just threw up in my mouth typing that.) Dom Brown is back in left despite a rather unpleasant night defensively, and Grady Sizemore is in right field, giving Marlon Byrd a day off. Wil Nieves is behind the plate after last night's long game.

Let's hope today's game isn't so excruciating. Discuss the game in the comments below.
