Philadelphia Phillies (69-80) vs. Miami Marlins (55-94)
Cliff Lee (13-6, 2.97)vs. Sam Dyson (0-0, 4.50)
Cliff Lee, one of the few true bright spots of this Phillies team, looks for win #14 tonight. With 1/3 of an inning, Lee will hit the 200 inning plateau for the sixth straight year. He’s been one of the steadiest pitchers in baseball during that time, yet he sort of flies under the radar because of how this team has taken a nosedive.
I know Monday Night Football is on, but do yourself a favor and flip between the Phils and the Bengals/Steelers game. Who knows how much longer Lee will be in his prime and we should take in the fact that he’s still pitching at a supreme level.
Lineup: Hernandez CF, Rollins SS, Utley 2B, Ruiz C, Brown, LF, Ruf 1B, Asche 3B, Bernadina RF, Lee P
In the style of a German Maibock, Rogue Dead Guy uses Pacman ale yeast. It’s deep honey in color with a malty aroma and a rich hearty flavor. It’s really good, too. As Edgar Allan Poe once said, “Who cares how time advances? I am drinking ale today.” Gotta love that. Spend it drinking a 22 oz. bottle of this. -PG
