2018 Gameday

Gameday 2018: Mets (18-17) at Phillies (22-15)

new-york-mets-alternate-logo-2-primary_display_image-300x300.jpgAfter shoving aside the dust that is the mangy San Francisco nine in four games, the Phillies are looking for actual blood. Strap in, friends, and get the popcorn ready, because first place isn’t just a mirage teasing us from afar, it is real.

In come the Mets. Let’s beat them to a pulp.

Gametime: 7:05 p.m.

The lineup:

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

Pitchers: Jake Arrieta (3-1, 3.15 ERA) vs. Steven Matz (1-3, 4.23 ERA)

I’m sorry, but how does it feel to be seven over .500, in a tie for first place, and greeting a major rival with JAKE ARRIETA on the hill? Bottle up this feeling right now. Just do it.

Same lineup as recently. It has worked.

Your Gameday Beer: Okay. I want a big beer tonight. And I want something to match how I feel. Let’s do an old favorite, Arrogant Bastard. I must’ve missed Arrogant Bastard becoming its own brand, breaking off from Stone Brewing Co. (but really not breaking off because I actually spoke to Greg Koch through Stone Brewing Co. folks in 2017). It’s complicated. Anyway, it’s still the same old strong ale that makes you feel things. I feel things today. Like a Phillies win. Let’s go.

Go Phillies!

    Neris is definitely a closer. When he comes in the game is over for the Phillies. Maybe the Reds would like to trade for him so he can close for Harvey. We’d like 2 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in return. GO PHILLIES

    Nerris has to go from closer. How many more is he going to blow before they switch him out.
