Game 105 Open Thread: Braves at Phillies

Let's enjoy this good thing while it lasts.

That's a necklace! That's not food!

I don't want to be a downer here, but I suspect the end of this streak of fabulous baseball could come any day now. We need to appreciate it while it lasts. Every unlikely stellar Buchanan start, every marvelous Herrera at-bat, every flawless bullpen performance. Each must be celebrated for the beautiful gems they are. Because anything and everything could be gone in an instant. The Phillies' current luck, their homegrown ace pitcher, other things probably...

So, uh, today's lineup.

Today's Lineups

Nick Markakis - RF Cesar Hernandez - 2B
Cameron Maybin - CF Odubel Herrera - CF
Freddie Freeman - 1B Maikel Franco - 3B
A.J. Pierzynski - C Ryan Howard - 1B
Adonis Garcia - 3B Domonic Brown - RF
Jace Peterson - 2B Freddy Galvis - SS
Andrelton Simmons - SS Cody Asche - LF
Eury Perez - LF Cameron Rupp - C
Matt Wisler - RHP Aaron Nola - RHP

Oh hey! It's Aaron Nola! I can get behind that! I mean, he's a robot made to look like a human pitcher man, but that's ok! He's new and great!

Aaron Nola!
