Game 108 Open Thread: Dodgers at Phillies

No seriously what's going on with the Phillies.

Cody Asche is a graceful athlete.

I cannot believe what's been happening with the Phillies. It's exciting and unbelievable, and a total gift. It could stop at any time! They should not be winning this much, but they have been and I love it! I forgot how fun winning was, and how great it is to watch the Phillies not suck!

Yes, my bar is low, but lately they've been clearing it with room to spare.

Today's Lineups

Jimmy Rollins - SS Cesar Hernandez - 2B
Howie Kendrick - 2B Odubel Herrera - CF
Adrian Gonzalez - 1B Maikel Franco - 3B
Andre Ethier - LF Jeff Francoeur - RF
Yasiel Puig - RF Ryan Howard - 1B
Joc Pederson - CF Darin Ruf - LF
Alberto Callaspo - 3B Freddy Galvis - SS
A.J. Ellis - C Carlos Ruiz - C
Brett Anderson - LHP Aaron Harang - RHP

Aaron Harang, waiver trade candidate, attempts to bolster his value tonight. Darin Ruf is playing some more for reasons I'm not quite sure of. Maybe someone will trade for him.

Hahahahahah kidding, no way that happens. Nooooope. We're stuck with Darin Ruf forever. Forever!
