Fifteen years later, vengeance to be had.
OK, let’s be honest: The 1993 World Series, while a sad time for us then, is more of a distant memory, like a family reunion. Of current Phillies, Jamie Moyer, Tom Gordon and Rudy Seanez were the only players in Major League Baseball in 1993.
Of course, all three could be playing tonight when the Blue Jays and Phils meet. Moyer gets the start in the first Interleague matchup of the season. David Purcey makes his second start of the season for the Jays. The 24-year-old prospect went 4.1 innings, giving up one run on two hits and seven walks against Detroit.
Last year the Phils were one of a very select group of National League teams that fared well against the AL, at 8-7.
There is rain pouring onto Philadelphia tonight, but reports say the game is set to start on time.
Phillies: Jamie Moyer (2-3) 5.02 ERA
Blue Jays: David Purcey (0-0) 2.08 ERA
Gametime: 7:05 p.m. EST
Weather: 56 degrees, rain
Lineup: Rollins, Victorino, Utley, Howard, Burrell, Werth, Feliz, Coste, Moyer

Your gamenight beer: We have to go Canadian tonight. We just have to. Some of my friends enjoy Molson Golden. It’s the Canadian Rolling Rock â€” tastes like piss. Why I wouldn’t normally recommend piss beer, I will tonight, because it’s Friday and you shouldn’t care so much about the quality of your beer. Eat some cocktail shrimp with it.
