    4. Juan Rivera (R) 1B

    I think this is their shortstop’s first game since the ankle. I know how much we all care if that’s true.

    Not a very exciting line up. Really hoping to “listen” to something exciting here to make up for Roy’s painful yesterday.

      You know it’s a slow start when the first urge to post a message is 3 innings in when the camera catches Chase yawning on 2nd base.

      Radio couldn’t do justice to that.

      It was priceless!

    I am over to Seinfeld.

    I hate missing seinfeld during the reg season.
    Dont need this on top of that.

    On a serious note Ken E.

    I put the number at 53.
    The Phillies need 53 wins from Halladay , Lee, Hamels to even consider contending.

    I dont care if Howard hits 70 homers.
    If those 3 arent getting it done it will be over very fast.

    Yankees announcers better than I thought would be. But its al leiter I think and bnot the normal turds.

    I actually get YES.

    Breaking my cherry on the 2013 season.

    The to 3 of the Yankees line up could play for the Phillies.

    Maybe Ruben will sign all 3 of them in 2016.

      Try HLN if you like hype.

      I didn’t even realize the Phils have 4 errors through the first 3 innings. Not that it matters in this game.
