Game 147 Open Thread: Marlins at Phillies

How do I love Cole Hamels? Let me count the ways...

Mitchell Leff

Well the Phillies are playing the Marlins at an interesting time. After last night's unfortunate incident between Mike Fiers and Giancarlo Stanton, The Mighty Giancarlo is down for the count. We won't get to see him hit any dingers out of Citizens Bank Park this series. But the good news is that he's OK! Actually, that's the best news ever. I love him so much.

More good news: Cole Hamels pitches tonight! Don't believe me? Here's the proof, sucker!

Today's Lineups

Christian Yelich - LF Ben Revere - CF
Donovan Solano - 2B Cody Asche - 3B
Casey McGehee - 3B Chase Utley - 2B
Marcell Ozuna - CF Ryan Howard - 1B
Jeff Baker - 1B Marlon Byrd - RF
Jarrod Saltalamacchia - C Domonic Brown - LF
Ed Lucas - RF Carlos Ruiz - C
Adeiny Hechavarria - SS Freddy Galvis - SS
Henderson Alvarez - RHP Cole Hamels - LHP

Cody Asche is back at third and Domonic Brown is in left field again. There are 16 games left, so I don't mind the "typical lineup" today as long as Sandberg keeps giving Darin Ruf and Maikel Franco starts every few games.

I miss Jimmy Rollins, but thankfully Cole Hamels is here to soothe my pain. Discuss the game in the comments below.
