Game Thread 5/31: Phillies at Marlins

On the bright side, tomorrow’s an off-day.

Today is an Aaron Nola start, everybody! Let’s get excited about that! Aaron Nola is awesome and great! His hair is a marvel! His accent is adorable! He’s an all-around super guy!

Today's Lineups

Cesar Hernandez - 2B Dee Gordon - 2B
Aaron Altherr - RF J.T. Riddle - SS
Howie Kendrick - LF Christian Yelich - CF
Tommy Joseph - 1B Marcell Ozuna - LF
Andrew Knapp - C Justin Bour - 1B
Maikel Franco - 3B Derek Dietrich - 3B
Odubel Herrera - CF A.J. Ellis - C
Freddy Galvis - SS Ichiro Suzuki - RF
Aaron Nola - RHP Dan Straily - RHP

Oh. I guess the Phillies have decided to start eight other non-Nola dudes to back him up. I personally feel like they should have tried to clone Aaron Nola so they could have started nine Nolas, but I guess that’s too much Nola for people to handle.

Who am I kidding. There’s never enough Nola!

Seriously, I will talk about anything before I actually talk about how the Phillies are doing. Do you need any cooking tips? Help with your crochet or cross stitch? Do you need to plan a party or gathering? I can help you with all of those things! Just don’t make me talk about the Phillies!
