2018 Gameday

Gameday 2018: Diamondbacks (15-6) at Phillies (14-7)

arizona-diamondbacks-logo.jpgWe’re back! After the four-game sweep of the Pirates, the Phillies are home against the pretty good Arizona Diamondbacks. How many people will be focused on this game? Probably fewer than 100!

Gametime: 7:05 p.m.

The lineup:

  1. Hernandez – 2B
  2. Santana – 1B
  3. Kingery – RF
  4. Hoskins – LF
  5. Altherr – CF
  6. Franco – 3B
  7. Florimon – SS
  8. Alfaro – C
  9. Velasquez – P

Pitchers: Vince Velasquez (1-2, 3.80 ERA) vs. Robbie Ray (2-0, 4.98 ERA)

Pedro Florimon gets a start today against the lefty Ray, as does Altherr.

Your Gameday Beer: We need a (semi) local tonight. Here’s Troegenator from Troegs, which is in Hershey, but hey, we can claim it. We’re claiming everything else these days (hi-yo!). A fine doppelback to support your fandom tonight.

Go Phillies!

Go Sixers!

    Just got home and started to watch the Phillies DVR. I do not care if this works out but this is a terrible line up 0 outfield defense, Floriman should only start like 5 games a year maybe. And Kingery needs to be in one position for a week or two so he can settle into some good at bats. I will never cheer against my Phillies, but having to put up with Kaplar because they win despite him wil drive me crazy. Santana is hitting 150 and plays everyday, when is he going to sit. Having florimon in the starting line up is like playing Micheal Martenez leading off and playing short. It is just painful

    Kingery looks overmatched…I doubt that it has anything to do with what position he’s playing.

      He does look overmatched, and he always seems to get himself down 0-2 in the count. Would they think of sending him down.? Could they with the contract.?
