Game Thread 5/30: Phillies at Marlins

The song stays the same.

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Miami Marlins
“Excuse me, do you need an all-glove infielder? Because I’d like to apply for the job.”
Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

I’m seriously considering doing some kind of daily video thing in every game thread, like the one I did with the Sesame Street videos to close out the 2015 season. I’m just not sure what the theme of this one should be. I’m open to suggestions! Whatever it takes to give us all something else to talk about if we need to. Things are bleak, and if you need any proof, this opening paragraph to the game thread has 88 words and only one of them is “Phillies.”

Okay. Phillies at Marlins. Back on track. Let’s take a look at those lineups.

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
Cameron Rupp - C Justin Bour - 1B
Michael Saunders - RF J.T. Realmuto - C
Ty Kelly - 3B Derek Dietrich - 3B
Freddy Galvis - SS J.T. Riddle - SS
Vince Velasquez - RHP Justin Nicolino - LHP

Until the Phillies get past their offensive woes, the pitching has to try and keep the games semi-winnable. Lately the bullpen has had no problem doing that. Let’s hope that Vince Velasquez is up for the challenge tonight.
