Game 128 Open Thread: Cardinals at Phillies

Annnnnd we're back after that brief Phillies vacation.

Mitchell Leff

Ahh, two Phillies-free evenings. And to top it off, there wasn't any Phillies news to distract us from not paying attention to the Phillies! It was a nice 48 hours.

But now we're back. I'm refreshed and ready to go. Are you? Of course, by "refreshed" I mean "drinking heavily during every second of tonight's game". Maybe you are, too!

Woo lineup woo:

Today's Lineups

Matt Carpenter - 3B Ben Revere - CF
Kolten Wong - 2B Jimmy Rollins - SS
Matt Holliday - LF Chase Utley - 2B
Matt Adams - 1B Ryan Howard - 1B
Jhonny Peralta - SS Marlon Byrd - RF
Jon Jay - CF Domonic Brown - LF
Oscar Taveras - RF Carlos Ruiz - C
Tony Cruz - C Cody Asche - 3B
Adam Wainwright - RHP Kyle Kendrick - RHP

Oh God, it's a Kyle Kendrick start. I'll definitely be drinking. And he's facing Adam Wainwright, so talk about night and day. At least with Wainwright pitching there will be one pitching performance worth watching!

Yeah, I'm throwing down the gauntlet. Right in front of Kyle Kendrick! Hopefully he'll pick it up, put it back down, pick up a baseball, and then throw a good game with it.

Discuss the game in the comments below.
