Day games are wonderful.

Day games on YouTube are not wonderful.

Trying to placate the masses of youths clamoring to watch the baseball game today on their devices whilst walking from class to class, MLB has decided this game, this one here today, is the one to show on YouTube. Trying to grab that sweet streaming money from the video giant, MLB continues to move towards Poochie the Dog with their product.

At least we have a night to ourselves!

Here are the lineups. For the Phillies:

Your eyes do not deceive you. That is Odubel Herrera in the cleanup spot, expected to be a run driver-inner. This is going to be a lineup that scores 10 runs, guaranteed. Spencer Howard is on the hill for the Phillies hoping to build....stamina? Over/under on his velocity in the third inning is set at 93.

For the Marlins:

Imagine having a bench capable of filling in quickly in a pinch like the Marlins seem to be capable of doing.

Let’s talk about it (you’re on the computer watching the game anyway...)
