Game 9 Open Thread: Phillies at Mets

Was last night a dream?

"I said GET DOWN!"
"I said GET DOWN!"
Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports

Holy crap last night's game was super, super fun. If only every game could be like that! I wouldn't mind if the Phillies lost every game if they could all be that fun and weird and absolutely bananas.

God I love baseball. I love it so much.

Today's Lineups

Odubel Herrera - CF Curtis Granderson - RF
Freddy Galvis - SS Travis d'Arnaud - C
Chase Utley - 2B Lucas Duda - 1B
Jeff Francoeur - RF Michael Cuddyer - LF
Darin Ruf - 1B Daniel Murphy - 2B
Cody Asche - 3B Eric Campbell - 3B
Cameron Rupp - C Juan Lagares - CF
Ben Revere - LF Ruben Tejada - SS
Jerome Williams - RHP Jon Niese - LHP

Not even that lineup can bring me back down to earth.

Herrera and Galvis stay in the top two lineup spots while Ben Revere slides to eighth. Ryan Howard has the night off (he really needs it, yikes) and Darin Ruf is at first and hitting fifth. Jeff Francoeur is in left and is hitting... fourth.

Jeff Francoeur is batting fourth on the 2015 Philadelphia Phillies.

This goes to show you that anything can happen, kids. Your dreams can come true. You could walk on Mars! You could compete in the Olympics! You could beat the all-time hot dog eating record! Or you could be Jeff Francoeur!

Believe in your dreams.
