Game 121 Open Thread: Phillies at Marlins

Chase Utley's just on vacation, right? He'll be back? SOMEONE TELL ME HE'LL BE BACK.

Ugh, a brand new day. Ugh, the dawning of a new Phillies team. Ugh, the future. Ugh ugh ugh ugh.

Yeah I know it's great and everything, but this is super, super sad. Chase Utley is *gone*. I know he was probably going to move on at the end of this season, but at least we would have gotten to see him play out the year. Now I have to watch him in another uniform.

Boo to you, reality. Boo.

Today's Lineups

Cesar Hernandez - 2B Dee Gordon - 2B
Andres Blanco - 3B Ichiro Suzuki - RF
Odubel Herrera - CF Martin Prado - 3B
Jeff Francoeur - RF Justin Bour - 1B
Darin Ruf - 1B Derek Dietrich - LF
Aaron Altherr - LF Marcell Ozuna - CF
Freddy Galvis - SS J.T. Realmuto - C
Carlos Ruiz - C Adeiny Hechavarria - SS
Jerome Williams - RHP Brad Hand - LHP

My guess is that Ryan Howard is simply too sad about Chase Utley to play today. Well, either that or he's just not playing.
