Ben Revere is out of the lineup with a swollen right ring finger, which he says is just a day-to-day injury. But with the way he’s hitting, plus the ability for John Mayberry to play multiple positions, you have to wonder if Revere is 100 percent an everyday player. We shall see.

Carlos Ruiz also gets a breather after a 1-for-12 start. Charlie Manuel said he’s pressing a bit, trying to do too much, which seems to be a theme this season.

What’s funny – and which is something we highlighted on the latest episode of Phillies Nation TV – is how much it’s a joy to watch Kyle Kendrick pitch. He’s got a new-found bulldog approach and will look to keep his hot start rolling against the worst team in the majors.

Keep an eye on Delmon Young in right field tonight, his first start on that side since 2007.

Lineup: Rollins SS, Utley 2B, M. Young 3B, Howard 1B, D. Young RF, Brown LF, Mayberry CF, Kratz C, Kendrick P

beer_1221GAMEDAY BEER: Great Lakes Brewing Burning River Pale Ale

Yesterday we highlighted Great Lakes’ Eliot Ness, so we’ll keep it going with the Great Lakes brews. Burning River Ale is a 5-time Gold Medal winner at the World Beer Championships, so it has to be good. The Burning River is an assertively hopped American pale ale with citrusy and piney Cascade hops, which is perfect for this weather. Love a solid pale ale when spring is about to turn to summer. Throw some burgers on the fire and open one of these. – PG
