Game 39 Open Thread: Diamondbacks at Phillies

SWEEP SWEEP SWEEP (potentially).

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

We're all thinking it. The Phillies' first three-game sweep of the season could come today, as ominous clouds gather overhead and rumbles are heard in the distance in response to this highly unnatural act.

Ryne Sandberg has set a lineup that seems as though he is actively working against the team; Chase Utley, Ryan Howard, Carlos Ruiz, and top offensive threat Freddy Galvis are all sitting today, while (sigh) Sean O'Sullivan gets the start. The D-backs pushing Josh Collmenter out there isn't too intimidating, but there are far fewer AAAA players in the Arizona lineup, at least today.
