Last night was quite a trip, wasn’t it? Players coming alive, breaking out of their slumps, hitting walk-offs, and also screwing up in really obvious, inelegant ways.
God I love baseball.
Successes and screw ups, failures and first places, I just love baseball. And I love the Phillies. So... [looks at watch]... when is Rhys Hoskins getting here?
KIDDING! SORT OF! OKAY TIME FOR LINEUPS!

I so badly want to give Zach Eflin the nickname “The Elf Man” for no reason other than his last name. I think it’s a nickname he wouldn’t like. Because he’s not an elf, he’s Porn Zorro (and a handsome one at that), but Porn Zorro isn’t a nickname we can give him, either. Well, we CAN. But no one will really use it.
Hey, if you want a game thread that makes sense, check out the ones I do during the work week. This is Sunday, and I don’t feel like I’m obligated to make sense.
Discuss (and enjoy!) the game in the comments below.
