Game 135 Open Thread: Phillies at Red Sox

This series has to go better, right? Right?

The Phillies start their final interleague series of the 2015 season tonight, against the Boston Red Sox. They come to Boston after going 1-2 against the Mets in their latest series. This series should be better. It has to be. I cannot imagine if this series is worse. And against the Red Sox, a team the Phillies have so much trade rumor history with. That can't happen. Please, universe.

Tonight's Sesame Street video is a parody of an all time great crappy 80s show: The Love Boat.

Ernie loves this boat! And I love Ernie!
