I'd wish for a win, but I know better than that.

I can't lie. I want the Phillies to win today. If they don't win, it will be their 10th loss in a row.

Everyone says that this isn't rock bottom yet. That there's farther to go before the franchise and the fans truly go -- and feel -- as low as they and we can go. But who says that has to be now? Can't we discover the depths of the Phillies crappiness on another day? Next week, maybe? Can't the Phillies just not lose today?

Today's Lineups

BALTIMORE ORIOLES PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES
Manny Machado - 3B Ben Revere - CF
Travis Snider - LF Chase Utley - 2B
Chris Parmelee - RF Maikel Franco - 3B
Chris Davis - 1B Ryan Howard - 1B
J.J. Hardy - SS Domonic Brown - RF
Ryan Flaherty - 2B Freddy Galvis - SS
Caleb Joseph - C Cody Asche - LF
David Lough - CF Carlos Ruiz - C
Bud Norris - RHP Sean O'Sullivan - RHP

You may think that with Sean O'Sullivan starting, the Phillies don't have a big chance to break this desperate losing streak. But starting for the Orioles is Bud Norris, who currently sports an 8.29 ERA. GUYS, THE PHILLIES HAVE A CHANCE!
