Game 119 Open Thread: Blue Jays at Phillies

These guys again.

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

I'm so disappointed that we'll have to play out the rest of the season without Maikel Franco. His wrist is actually fractured, and while his projected return is about a month, the season will be over in about a month. There's no reason to rush him, especially since he's so important to the future of the Phillies.

Yikes. That's a depressing thought. The season will be almost over in a month. The season is approaching the finish line, guys. We've almost made it!

Today's Lineups

Troy Tulowitzki - SS Chase Utley - 2B
Josh Donaldson - 3B Cesar Hernandez - 3B
Jose Bautista - RF Odubel Herrera - CF
Edwin Encarnacion - 1B Jeff Francoeur - RF
Russell Martin - C Darin Ruf - 1B
Ezequiel Carrera - LF Cody Asche - LF
Ben Revere - CF Freddy Galvis - SS
Ryan Goins - 2B Cameron Rupp - C
R.A. Dickey - RHP Aaron Nola - RHP

Well that is certainly a lineup, alright. Things look a little bleak without Franco, but the return of Chase Utley softens the blow a little bit. Thank goodness.
