Game Thread 5/29: Phillies at Marlins

Happy Memorial Day!

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

This was one of those days where I really could have used a Phillies day game. A good excuse to laze around midday and drink beer, you know? I mean, I did that anyway because it’s a holiday, but I would have liked to have an excuse to do that.

Memorial Day lineup time!

Today's Lineups

Cesar Hernandez - 2B Dee Gordon - 2B
Howie Kendrick - LF Giancarlo Stanton - RF
Aaron Altherr - CF Christian Yelich - CF
Tommy Joseph - 1B Marcell Ozuna - LF
Michael Saunders - RF Justin Bour - 1B
Cameron Rupp - C J.T. Realmuto - C
Maikel Franco - 3B Derek Dietrich - 3B
Freddy Galvis - SS J.T. Riddle - SS
Jeremy Hellickson - RHP Edinson Volquez - RHP

This is the day that Odubel Herrera finally sits. Howie Kendrick is back, and that gives Pete Mackanin the perfect chance to give Odubel the day off. And I think he needs it, too.
