Game 11 Open Thread: Phillies at Nationals

Can Sean O'Sullivan stop this losing streak? Look at that sentence I just typed. It's so silly.

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

Cole Hamels has sure given up a lot of home runs, huh?

Sorry. I couldn't think of anything else to say about last night's game besides that. Especially since today, Sean O'Sullivan is starting.

Today's Lineups

Odubel Herrera - CF Yunel Escobar - 3B
Freddy Galvis - SS Ian Desmond - SS
Chase Utley - 2B Jayson Werth - LF
Jeff Francoeur - RF Bryce Harper - RF
Cody Asche - 3B Ryan Zimmerman - 1B
Carlos Ruiz - C Wilson Ramos - C
Ryan Howard - 1B Danny Espinosa - 2B
Darin Ruf - LF Michael Taylor - CF
Sean O'Sullivan - RHP Max Scherzer - RHP

This is one of the first times that Ryne Sandberg has kept the same lineup from one night to another. Jeff Francoeur is still batting cleanup. Ryan Howard is batting seventh, and Darin Ruf is hitting eighth. Ben Revere sits. Again. Even though he had great numbers against last night's starter, Doug Fister. And to boot, keep all the power potential at the back of the lineup. AGAINST MAX SCHERZER.

Ryne Sandberg is so bad at his job I don't even know what to do anymore. If I was that bad at my non-blog full time job, I wouldn't have a non-blog full time job because they would have fired me for being an incompetent boob. Ryne Sandberg is the only part of this team that I legitimately hate. He's surpassed Jonathan Papelbon. That's how deep and rich and intense my Ryne Sandberg hatred is.

Go away, Ryne Sandberg.
