Game 137 Open Thread: Phillies at Braves

Tea & cake or death!

Jim McIsaac

The Phillies continue their tour of the NL East this week with a stop in Atlanta for a three-game series. September is always a division-heavy month. Remember when that mattered? It was so exciting, once upon a time, to play division rivals and watch the numbers change in the standings. Now when we watch the numbers change, it's to see what kind of draft pick the Phillies will get. But hey, that's exciting in its own way, right?!

OK, it's obviously time for today's happy video.

These Lego animations to Eddie Izzard stand-up bits are just amazing. It makes it funnier, which I didn't think was possible.

Lineup time:

Ben Revere - CF Jason Heyward - RF

Cole Hamels vs. Julio Teheran should be a great matchup. I LOVE YOU COLE.
