Game Thread 8/23: Phillies at Marlins

Here we are again, on the verge of a hot streak.

Congrats to Bryce Harper and his family on the birth of their baby. Congrats to Maikel Franco on being back with the big club temporarily. Congrats to everyone! The Phillies just beat the Red Sox twice and their star player is having a child. Huzzah!

Looks like we’re going to see Vince Velasquez and Zach Eflin make starts in this series! Again! Hey, I think I just figured out why this team doesn’t ever win too many games in a row. Anyway, I know the Phillies have wanged every chance they’ve had to get hot and make things interesting in the wild card race, and have historically struggled in 2019 against the most beatable teams in the league like the Marlins, but maybe this time things will be different.
