We're halfway done! Guys! We made it through 81 games and we're all still alive! I didn't think we'd manage it, but we did! I feel like celebrating, but there are still another 81 games left, including today's game.

And speaking of today's game, let's look at the lineups.

Today's Lineups

Odubel Herrera - CF Jace Peterson - 2B
Cesar Hernandez - 2B Cameron Maybin - CF
Maikel Franco - 3B Nick Markakis - RF
Ryan Howard - 1B Chris Johnson - 1B
Domonic Brown - RF Juan Uribe - 3B
Cody Asche - LF Jonny Gomes - LF
Freddy Galvis - SS Andrelton Simmons - SS
Cameron Rupp - C Ryan Lavarnway - C
Adam Morgan - LHP Julio Teheran - RHP

Adam Morgan is making his second ever MLB start today. His last time out, he did as well as any of us could hope, allowing just one run (a homer) and two walks over 5 2/3 innings. Of course, his FIP was 4.32, sooooooOOOooooo... But who knows! Anything could happen!

Yes. Positivity. I'm going to be positive in this second half. I'm going to be upbeat and say good things and look at the bright side. I'm absolutely going to do that. We'll see how long it lasts.
