Let’s try this again.

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Texas Rangers Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

As I sad in this morning’s links post, there’s no shame in being bested by Yu Darvish. He’s one of the best there is, and that the Phillies couldn’t figure him out is something they have in common with a lot of teams.

But they really do need to get it together. A win tonight would be great.

Today's Lineups

PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES TEXAS RANGERS
Cesar Hernandez - 2B Shin-Soo Choo - DH
Odubel Herrera - CF Elvis Andrus - SS
Aaron Altherr - LF Nomar Mazara - RF
Tommy Joseph - 1B Jonathan Lucroy - C
Michael Saunders - RF Rougned Odor - 2B
Maikel Franco - 3B Mike Napoli - 1B
Daniel Nava - DH Joey Gallo - 3B
Cameron Rupp - C Jared Hoying - CF
Freddy Galvis - SS Delino DeShields Jr. - LF
Zach Eflin - RHP Andrew Cashner - RHP

I’ll say it again: a win tonight would be great. It would be life-affirming. I don’t think that’s asking for much. Right? Please?

God, I’m begging them to win. That can’t be a good sign.
