Tonight, weather permitting, the Phillies face an early season test as the Braves come into Philadelphia for a four game series. The Braves have been pretty good thus far in the season, but suffered a major blow this week when they lost ace Mike Soroka for the season to an Achilles injury. As long as the storms hold out, tonight they’ll open the series against each other (and the fans outside the ballpark).

Yes, it’s another night of hoping that Vince Velasquez can somehow turn into the pitcher we have always hoped he’d become.
Let’s talk about it!
