Game Thread 5/24: Rockies at Phillies

The benchings are continuing.

MLB: Colorado Rockies at Philadelphia Phillies Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Okay! Another game! We can do this! Right? Right!

We are strong! We are invincible! We are woman/Phillies fans, hear us roar!

Oh Lord I’ve completely lost it. Let’s just get to the lineups.

Today's Lineups

Charlie Blackmon - CF Cesar Hernandez - 2B
DJ LeMahieu - 2B Freddy Galvis - SS
Nolan Arenado - 3B Aaron Altherr - LF
Carlos Gonzalez - RF Tommy Joseph - 1B
Ian Desmond - 1B Andres Blanco - 3B
Gerardo Parra - LF Odubel Herrera - CF
Trevor Story - SS Andrew Knapp - C
Tony Wolters - C Michael Saunders - RF
Tyler Chatwood - RHP Jeremy Hellickson - RHP

Maikel Franco is still sitting, and so is Cameron Rupp. According to Pete Mackanin, he’s sitting Rupp because he wants to see Andrew Knapp play more. (And Knapp couldn’t possibly be worse than Rupp, right?) As far as Franco, that’s a different story. According to The Morning Call, Mack’s keeping him out to send him a message, because the two haven’t talked about the benching. But apparently Franco has no plans to talk to Mackanin about it, because “[he’s] not that kind of guy.” Even after being told that Mackanin wants Franco to come and talk to him about it.

So this is going to end well.
