Game 101 Open Thread: Phillies at Blue Jays

The air is clearer, the sun is brighter, food tastes better...

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

JONATHAN PAPELBON HAS BEEN TRADED.

*sings* A WHOLE NEW WORRRRRRRLLLLDDDDDDDD!!!

Thank you, Nationals, for being the Aladdin to my Jasmine and showing me a whole new world, one without Jonathan Papelbon. He'll spend the rest of his time in the majors trashing the Phillies, giving me many more opportunities to hate both him and his new team.

I'm so happy.
