Game 19 Open Thread: Braves at Phillies

Freddy Galvis, superhero.

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Today I'm going to focus on the good things. Freddy Galvis made a helluva play last night, right?

That's insane. I love watching Galvis play the field. Galvis is who everyone *thought* Wilson Valdez was. But Galvis is so much better than Valdez ever was. Pitching excepted, of course. Though can you imagine that? Freddy Galvis taking the mound in the 24th inning of some meaningless game against the Brewers. I want to see that so much.

Today's Lineups

Nick Markakis - RF Ben Revere - LF
Andrelton Simmons - SS Odubel Herrera - CF
Freddie Freeman - 1B Chase Utley - 2B
Kelly Johnson - 3B Jeff Francoeur - RF
Jonny Gomes - LF Ryan Howard - 1B
Jace Peterson - 2B Cesar Hernandez - 3B
Christian Bethancourt - C Cameron Rupp - C
Eric Young Jr. - CF Freddy Galvis - SS
Trevor Cahill - RHP Jerome Williams - RHP

I guess it's obvious I'm no longer focusing on the good things. Kidding! I'm kidding. Jeff Francoeur is in the lineup again, which makes me think Grady Sizemore will be getting his walking papers when Domonic Brown comes back. And also because Sizemore is horrible.

Good luck Jerome Williams! You've got Freddy Galvis backing you up!
