Gameday: Nationals (34-34) vs. Phillies (33-37)

Washington Nationals (34-34) vs. Philadelphia Phillies (33-37)

Dan Haren (4-8, 5.70) vs. John Lannan (0-1, 6.14)

TIME: 7:05
WEATHER: 78, partly cloudy, chance of rain
MEDIA: Facebook or Twitter

After a brutal road trip, the Phillies return to the bank and will face the Washington Nationals for the first time this season. They trail the Nationals by 2 games in the NL East and the Braves by 8.5 games. So, here is an opportunity for the Phillies to leapfrog back into second place. First place is clearly a different story…

Ruben Amaro spoke to media and voiced his frustrations with the team, but also placed blame on himself. However, he gave the old cliche that they aren’t giving up and they aren’t blowing it up.

The good news for the Phillies is that the Nationals have scored 237 runs, tied for the second fewest in baseball. The bad news is that the Phillies can’t really score enough to get past most teams, so it may not even matter.

Lineup: Revere CF, Young 3B, Rollins SS, Howard 1B, Brown LF, D. Young RF, Frandsen 2B, Quintero C, Hamels P

Gameday Beer: Leinenkugel Summer Shandy

You will undoubtedly be refreshed by this summer beer from Leinenkugel. Don’t let the haze of the pour keep you away, it’s got fruity notes that will tickle the taste buds. Yeah, I went there. I wouldn’t suggest drinking a whole six pack by yourself, but one or two of these will do the trick as an aside from your normal beer routine. -PG

    We often praise Ryne Sandburg and totally believe that he will be the next manager of the Phils…
    But how would you rate his performance at 3B?

    He sent Michael Young for 2 straight games and was out both times.

    And he JUST sent Howard!! Why. How

    can we get rid of the moron coaching at 3rd? He has killed three rallies this week alone.

    He has sent numerous guys who are being thrown out. M Young has been thrown out 4 or 5 times at home this year. How many times Schmenk?? Does anyone know if he coached third in minors??

      He’s been thrown out 3 times at home, which is tied for 2nd most in the NL (Allen Craig 5).

      The Phils have been thrown out at home 8 times, and the NL average is 7 per team.

      I’ll say that there are many times that even if it ends up being an out, it’s a good gamble. If there are two outs, and the team is having trouble scoring runs, I don’t mind taking a chance and forcing them to make the play (pickup, transfer, throw, catch, tag). Even major leaguers don’t always get all 5 right on every play.

    God I can’t stand listening to this “asswipe” announcer Carpenter of the Gnats. Everything the Gnats do is OK and tremendous and of course their opponents suck. In the P’s case this year he’s correct.

    Michael Adams…one day you will show the Phillies that you are worth your deal.

    Wait- WTH- didn’t they know that he was having offseason surgery? Honestly?

    Ugh. Well, the good news is: if the Phils win, tomorrow is discount pizza day. 🙂

    Get rid of Sandburg. It won’t be a mistake…THIS time.

    The bottom of the eighth was extremely sad.

    Well, we haven’t lost yet but if we do remember Howard thrown out because of Sandberg and remember the bottom of the eighth.

    Today’s story line should be ” Struggling Nats team somehow manages to lose a game versus a really bad Phillies team”.
