Game Thread 8/14: Phillies at Padres

There is a game today, I’ve learned.

MLB: New York Mets at Philadelphia Phillies Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

It’s a rude awakening when you (me) were planning on a quiet, baseball-free night, only to discover that the Phillies don’t actually have an off-day. Surprise! The Phillies are playing today!

Today's Lineups

Cesar Hernandez - 2B Manuel Margot - CF
Freddy Galvis - SS Carlos Asuaje - 2B
Odubel Herrera - CF Jose Pirela - LF
Rhys Hoskins - LF Yangervis Solarte - SS
Tommy Joseph - 1B Wil Myers - 1B
Nick Williams - RF Cory Spangenberg - 3B
Maikel Franco - 3B Matt Szczur - RF
Cameron Rupp - C Austin Hedges - C
Jerad Eickhoff - RHP Travis Wood - LHP

Oh good God, Cameron Rupp is starting again. Pete Mackanin is truly terrible at his job. I don’t understand why or how this is happening. Why Jorge Alfaro is sitting after having so much success is beyond me.

Maybe Pete Mackanin wants to get fired. If he does, let’s hope Matt Klentak puts him out of his misery and does it soon. For all of our sake.
