Aaron Nola faces the Mets. Hold on to your butts.

MLB: New York Mets at Philadelphia Phillies John Geliebter-USA TODAY Sports

Last night was a bummer, wasn’t it? Well, I guess it wasn’t as bad as it could have been. The Phillies and Mets didn’t play, which is better than the Phillies losing to the Mets. Both outcomes are worse than the Phillies beating the Mets, but by now we know to never, ever, EVER expect that to happen.

I really think that Odubel Herrera and Maikel Franco need to have their headshots redone. Rhys Hoskins looks happy, Aaron Altherr looks stoned, Carlos Santana looks like he’s posing for his own anime portrait. And then Franco and Herrera look... confused? Angry? Slightly perturbed?

It doesn’t matter. Why? Today as Aaron Nola day! I can’t wait to see what he has in store for us today.

Also: happy Mother’s Day to all mothers and mother-like people out there. My mother is an amazing woman, I love her, and I wish we could be together today. If you can be with your mother today, enjoy it. (Or try to, at least.)
