Go Nationals, help the Phillies get that draft pick! Go Phillies, for some reason!

There are just 32 games left in the Phillies' nightmare season, and so I'm going to try and find one positive, good, happy, or at least non-depressing thing about every game, and post it in the game thread.

Today's thing: the Nationals being in town means Jayson Werth plays at Citizens Bank Park! I miss him so much.

Lineup!

Today's Lineups

WASHINGTON NATIONALS PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES
Denard Span - CF Ben Revere - CF
Anthony Rendon - 3B Jimmy Rollins - SS
Jayson Werth - RF Chase Utley - 2B
Adam LaRoche - 1B Ryan Howard - 1B
Ian Desmond - SS Marlon Byrd - RF
Bryce Harper - LF Domonic Brown - LF
Wilson Ramos - C Carlos Ruiz - C
Danny Espinosa - 2B Cody Asche - 3B
Tanner Roark - RHP A.J. Burnett - RHP

Since none of these people are nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award, I won't be watching. But I'm going to assume that the Nationals will either beat the crap out of the Phillies, or alternatively let the Phillies think they're going to win but then beat them at the last possible second.

Let's all hope that A.J. Burnett remembers how to pitch well tonight. For all of our sake.
