Hey, the Phillies won last night! And it was awesome! I love it when they win. I love it even more when Cody Asche doesn't suck. Three cheers for Cody Asche not sucking for a minute! And now the Phillies actually have a chance of splitting this series, which is a miracle if you think about it.

Time for today's Sesame Street clip!

In true Kermit form, he tries to report on the London fog, but never manages to. He instead tells a frog, a member of the Queen's Guard holding a log, and a hog named Lord Hog that sadly, they are not what he's looking for. Then they end the "report" with Kermit joining them to dance the London Clog, the dance they do every time the fog disappears. Never has anyone or anything ever had more fun with rhyming words than Sesame Street.

Lineup time!

Today's Lineups

Oh Lord, it's Aaron Harang again. The early part of the season seems like a dream, now. He was good, once, for just a little while. And now, well, let's see if the offense can work some magic today.
