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!

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.
