Let’s start this so we can end this.

MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at Philadelphia Phillies Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Phillies are wrapping up their season, but that means one last trip through the NL East. This weekend we’ve got the Atlanta Braves, bearf.

I mean, it has to be done. The Phillies have to play them. And you know what? I want the Phillies to win. Make the Braves’ decision about whether or not to fire Bryan Snitker even harder. I don’t care about the draft pick anymore, I wanna see this young teams get some wins under their belt.

Today's Lineups

PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES ATLANTA BRAVES
Cesar Hernandez - 2B Ender Inciarte - CF
Freddy Galvis - SS Ozzie Albies - 2B
Nick Williams - RF Freddie Freeman - 1B
Rhys Hoskins - 1B Nick Markakis - RF
Aaron Altherr - LF Kurt Suzuki - C
Odubel Herrera - CF Johan Camargo - 3B
Jorge Alfaro - C Lane Adams - LF
J.P. Crawford - 3B Dansby Swanson - SS
Ben Lively - RHP Sean Newcomb - LHP

HEY GUYS LOOK, FREDDY GALVIS IS PLAYING AND BATTING SECOND. GOODY.

Yup, Pete Mackanin is willingly batting a guy with a .306 OBP second in the order. I don’t even know what to say anymore. Someone pass the grain alcohol.
