MLB: San Diego Padres at Philadelphia Phillies Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Listen, the Phillies play a game tonight. They’re on really late, so if you want to stay up, you’ll have to commit. We can do this together, folks. If we just talk through the game and inevitable disappointment, we’ll be able to get through this one in quick time. You’re here for the lineups, so here they are.

For the Phillies:

Alex from Fullerton, take a bow. Your boy is coming home.

Jorge Bonifacio gets the callup from the minor leagues because he more closely resembles a centerfielder than their former #1 overall pick who was drafted as a centerfielder. Granted, the Padres’ starter eat lefties for breakfast, but you get the idea.

For the Padres:

Blake Snell is the most overrated pitcher in the game, bar none. By now the Padres realize they made a massive overpay to get his services. This means he will dominate the Phillies.

Let’s talk about it.
