Seriously, just end this series.
The Phillies try to salvage a split by taking on the Mets today. In a series that has featured a cornucopia of Philadelphia miscues (bullpen, fielding, managerial misfires, lack of offense), today offers a new day for the Phillies to lose a game in a brand new way.
Oh the possibilities!
Here are the lineups. For the Phillies:
Bryce Harper is out of the lineup, which probably forces Odubel Herrera back into the lineup. He has been terrible lately and needs to sit a day, but with Travis Jankowski needed to replace Harper, they don’t have a centerfield option.
At least they have Zack Wheeler.
For the Mets:
Oh cool, a Stroman start. Should go well.
Let’s talk about it.
