In retrospect, last night was pretty predictable.

What did any of us really expect from last night's game? Did we expect Phillippe to suddenly, magically be good? Unless you're new here, I'm guessing you didn't really expect that. Oh Phillippe. It's so nice of you to come by. Please take a complimentary gift bag on your way out.

But on to tonight!

Today's Lineups

ST. LOUIS CARDINALS PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES
Kolten Wong - 2B Ben Revere - CF
Matt Carpenter - 3B Chase Utley - 2B

Harang! Can he reclaim the magic he once had? Who knows. Probably not. But we'll get to find out!
