Why? Why is this happening again?

I will always love you, Roy.

Are you serious? Again? The Phillies are playing the Mets AGAIN?! This must be a ruse or a joke or someone playing a horrible, evil trick on me. They *just did this*.

I'm so tired of the Mets I could vomit.

But they're going to play the Mets whether I'm tired of them or not, so let's see the lineup.

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 Marlon Byrd - RF
Kirk Nieuwenhuis - LF Grady Sizemore - LF
Juan Lagares - CF Carlos Ruiz - C
Wilmer Flores - SS Cody Asche - 3B
Bartolo Colon - RHP A.J. Burnett - RHP

As our own Justin Klugh said in the series preview, tonight is the battle of the pitchers that everyone thought would be traded but inexplicably weren't. So there's that.

Tonight is Roy Halladay night at the ballpark. Remember him and smile, because he's still awesome.
