Welcome to game two of Players Weekend! I hope you’ve been enjoying all the nicknames, the Phillies’ weird pajama uniforms, and the strange mismatching socks. It’s a feast for the eyes. A retina-searing feast for the eyes.

Today's Lineups

Jon Jay - RF Cesar Hernandez - 2B
Kyle Schwarber - LF Freddy Galvis - SS
Kris Bryant - 3B Nick Williams - RF
Anthony Rizzo - 1B Rhys Hoskins - LF
Alex Avila - C Tommy Joseph - 1B
Albert Almora - CF Maikel Franco - 3B
Tommy La Stella - 2B Pedro Florimon - CF
Javier Baez - SS Jorge Alfaro - C

So the Phillies won last night! It was unexpected and wonderful. Winning is nice, I like winning. And I also like Rhys Hoskins! I like it when he hits home runs. These are simple things, but things we can all agree on. Rhys Hoskins is great and his home runs are wonderful.

I don’t think we need more than that. Rhys Hoskins is The Truth.
