Game Thread 9/7: Phillies at Mets

Everyone ready for the Phillies to face the Mets? No? Too bad!

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Miami Marlins Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Do you ever look at the 2018 Phillies and think “man, I wish these guys could look more like the futile teams the Phillies fielded in 2013-2016.” If you’re a crazy person who has ever thought that, I have some great news for you!

The 3-4-5 of that lineup really looks like a classic 2014 lineup. Old guy, old guy, guy who spent most of the year in the minors and didn’t improve. It’s vintage! It’s throwback! It’s not a fever dream flashback to a time I already lived through once!

But Aaron Nola is on the mound tonight. That is something to be happy about. Close your eyes and think about Aaron Nola. And now open your eyes, because he’s about to be on TV.
