The Phillies are facing the Blue Jays this weekend, which means they’re in Canada! Ah, Canada. I’ve never been to Canada myself, but I lived in Maine for many years and recently visited. It’s not the same thing at all, of course, but it’s Canada-adjacent. I got Canadian money when I was in Maine! In Maine, Canadian change is treated just like American money. Fun fact!

Okay that’s not a fun fact, it’s more of a boring fact. But here’s something that’s not boring: tonight’s lineup!

That is an un-boring Players Weekend lineup! Get ready for nickname jerseys and awesome cleats... again! Yeah, we saw all of this last weekend at the Little League Classic, but since that game was such an almighty disappointment, I don’t blame you for blocking it all out and completely forgetting about it. If you have, lucky you!

We’ve got Jake the Snake on the mound tonight. Hopefully the defense actually shows up and stops tripping over their own feet to help Jake get a win.
