Game 91 Open Thread: Phillies at Giants

Bring on the All-Star break.

I don't think I've ever been more ready for an All-Star break. There has been an extraordinary amount of losing. Did you know that the Phillies haven't won 30 games yet? They're still sitting pretty at 29. Or ugly. Sitting ugly.

What I really want is for the Phillies to win. I want them to get to 30 wins by the break. So things aren't completely hopeless, so they don't end the symbolic first half of the season being swept by the effing Giants. The Giants! I can't take it. I just can't.

Today's Lineups

PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS
Ben Revere - CF Angel Pagan - CF

Chad Billingsley has a chance. He's coming off his best start of the season in his former home stadium. He has to be feeling good. Let that carry him and the Phillies to victory today. Please.
