The Phillies are in Florida tonight, as they begin a three game set with the Marlins. They are coming off a series win against the Mets–their first win of the year. I think this is an important series for the Phils. I think they have a chance at a sweep, and they need to take advantage of that. It’s a perfect situation for Roy Halladay and Cole Hamels to get back in the groove (or, in Halladay’s case specifically, to possibly find himself again).

Tonight, though, John Lannan gets the ball, and he’s been pretty good so far this year for being the fifth starter. Ricky Nolasco will be on the bump for the Fish, and it is tough to predict what kind of game he’ll have against the Phils. I anticipate a low scoring game, at least for the Marlins, because their lineup looks like some sort of cruel joke. They have Placido Polanco batting cleanup to “protect” Giancarlo Stanton. Oooof. Here’s to being able to say “hey, at least our lineup isn’t the Marlins.”

Update: Stanton has been scratched from tonight’s game.

LINEUP: Revere CF, Rollins SS, Utley 2B, Howard 1B, Young 3B, Brown LF, Nix RF, Kratz C, Lannan P

Whirlwind WitbierYour Gameday Beer – Whirlwind Witbier
Tonight we have a gentle offering by Victory. This classic German Witbier is supremely drinkable on any evening, especially a rainy one like today. The flavor is comprised by wheat malt and yeast with notes of orange zest, coriander, and clove. Essentially, it’s another more sophisticated version of Blue Moon, if you fancy those. If you can find some fresh shellfish, like a bushel of crabs, have that with it. – By Brian
