Game Thread 9/12: Marlins at Phillies

I can handle this lineup.

MLB: Miami Marlins at Philadelphia Phillies
Look at these studs.

First, can we all take a moment to admire the picture at the top of this game thread? Are Odubel Herrera and Nick Williams posing for a calendar? Or maybe a Sears catalog? Because holy crap, they both look super hunky.

Anyway, onto the lineup.

Today's Lineups

Dee Gordon - 2B Odubel Herrera - CF
Giancarlo Stanton - RF Freddy Galvis - SS
Christian Yelich - CF Aaron Altherr - LF
Marcell Ozuna - LF Rhys Hoskins - 1B
Justin Bour - 1B Nick Williams - RF
J.T. Realmuto - C Maikel Franco - 3B
Derek Dietrich - 3B Jorge Alfaro - C
Miguel Rojas - SS J.P. Crawford - 2B
Dillon Peters - LHP Nick Pivetta - RHP

I am digging this lineup. Maikel Franco at third, J.P. Crawford at second, and Rhys Hoskins at first. With Jorge Alfaro catching! This is the way it should be. Mostly. At this point, I’m not going to complain. It looks like we’re going to be seeing a lot less Tommy Joseph and Cameron Rupp, so you definitely won’t find me complaining.
