Man that day off yesterday was great, wasn't it?! I don't even remember what the Phillies were up to before it. But I do see they made a few changes to the roster today (full roster moves here!). Curious to see what that Diekman kid has to offer out of the pen.
Earlier in the day we provided a nice look at where the Phillies are currently in the NL East standings along with a preview of the San Diego Padres (they're not very good) and other teams coming up on their schedule. Time to get back closer to .500, damn it.
It'll be Vance Worley (2-2, 2.84) going up against left-hander Clayton Richard (1-4, 4.89) for the Padres this evening at the Bank.
Lineup vs Padres: Rollins SS, Polanco 3B, Victorino CF, Pence RF, Wigginton 1B, Ruiz C, Mayberry LF, Galvis 2B, Worley P
