This is the first of TWO doubleheaders the Phillies have with the Mets in the next month. TWO.

So apparently the Phillies are facing a team called “The Mets” today. I’m not sure I’ve heard of them. I vaguely remember the Phillies playing a team called “The Mets” earlier in the season and it did not go well. Or maybe it was “The Moops.” Or “The Meeps?” Whatever. The Phillies are back in Flushing to play them, and come what may.

Though to be honest, we couldn’t ask for a better day of Phillies pitching. Zach Eflin is on for the first game, while Aaron Nola starts the second.

Ahem, I’m sorry. I mean PHILLIES ALL-STAR AARON NOLA.

Hell yes.
