You know, I could talk about last night's game. Or I could shove a sharpened stick into my eye repeatedly. If last night marked the end of the Phillies' hot streak, damn what a streak it was. But it may not be! They could come roaring back tonight, as wild and improbably good as ever.

I really like how Pete Mackanin hasn't been shy about tossing around his lineup. He's been rotating Cody Asche, Jeff Francoeur, and Domonic Brown pretty liberally, and now he has the chance to do so with Chase Utley, Freddy Galvis, and Cesar Hernandez. He seems committed to it. I'm just glad everyone's getting playing time.
