(Early) Game Thread 5/14: Phillies at Nationals

Will today be better than last night?

Well last night sucked. I don’t even want to rehash it, I just want to move forward with my life. As we all should. And besides, after today, the Phillies don’t see the Nationals again for months.

Think about that. Really, really think about it. No Bryce Harper, no Max Scherzer, no Daniel Murphy, for months. God, it’s beautiful.

But first, today’s first game.

Today's Lineups

Cesar Hernandez - 2B Trea Turner - SS
Daniel Nava - RF Brian Goodwin - LF
Aaron Altherr - CF Bryce Harper - RF
Tommy Joseph - 1B Anthony Rendon - 3B
Maikel Franco - 3B Daniel Murphy - 2B
Cameron Rupp - C Adam Lind - 1B
Freddy Galvis - SS Matt Wieters - C
Ty Kelly - LF Michael Taylor - CF
Jeremy Hellickson - RHP Gio Gonzalez - LHP

Let’s all hope that Jeremy Hellickson does better today than he did in his last start, because that was... woof. But I know he can rebound. Believe!

Oh God, did I just end the last paragraph with “believe?” Just kill me.
