Last night was a pleasant surprise, wasn't it? We should all treasure those games, those rare and precious wins. Feed and shelter them, shower affection upon them, make them feel loved so maybe they'll stay longer and come back more often.
I guess what I'm saying is that Phillies wins are like cats. I am not a cat person.

Welcome to the Phillies, Chad Billingsley! Please enjoy your stay. Today is Billingsley's first start in the majors since April 15, 2013, and the fact that he's made it back is pretty cool. Good luck out there, Chad!
Chase Utley is on the bench today. At least his batting average won't get any worse, AMIRITE!? So there's that. Oh god, make it stop make it stop make it stop.
