Welcome Back!

Welcome back, gang! I hope everyone enjoyed the break from baseball. For some it was too long, for others not long enough. For me, it was just right. Sort of like a baseball Goldilocks?

I’m out of practice and it’s only been five days since I’ve done an official game thread. Yikes. Let’s just get to the lineup.

Jake Arrieta starts off the unofficial second half. The Phillies will be working to hold on to first place. Holy crap, look at what I just typed. So exciting!

Let’s hope it’s a good one, and not just because I’m going to be at this game. I’m taking my dad, and it’s our first Phillies game at CBP in nearly two years. So yeah, actually, that’s actually the first reason why I want it to be a good game! I’m selfish, but I can’t help it. I want to see dingers and great pitching and great defense. Do the thing, Phillies!
