I’m envious of the Phillies, who get to spend a lot of time in Denver this week. Two years ago I did a cross-country drive with my boyfriend, and we spent a whole extra day in Denver. We did four breweries in one day and it was awesome. Denver is great, I wish I was there right now.
But I’m not here to provide a free advertisement for the Denver Tourism Board. It’s Phillies time!
|PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES||COLORADO ROCKIES|
|Cesar Hernandez - 2B||Charlie Blackmon - CF|
|Freddy Galvis - SS||DJ LeMahieu - 2B|
|Aaron Altherr - RF||Nolan Arenado - 3B|
|Tommy Joseph - 1B||Gerardo Parra - LF|
|Nick Williams - LF||Mark Reynolds - 1B|
|Maikel Franco - 3B||Carlos Gonzalez - RF|
|Odubel Herrera - CF||Trevor Story - SS|
|Cameron Rupp - C||Jonathan Lucroy - C|

So we’ve got Vince Velasquez starting in Coors Field.
Let’s prepare ourselves for dingers. A shower of dingers. It might actually rain dingers. Just accept it. If you know it’s coming, you won’t be disappointed.
Also a disappointment? No newly-promoted Jorge Alfaro tonight. But hopefully we’ll see him soon.
