I was having a conversation with a friend over the weekend about how watching the Phillies play quasi-meaningless baseball over the past week has been somewhat enjoyable -- "stress-free baseball," was how it was described. Philly winning series in dramatic fashion tends to help as well.
We get to watch Dom Brown develop before our eyes -- or not -- and he'll get the chance to bat second this evening as the Phillies look to play spoiler to the Braves' wild card aspirations. Vance Worley (6-6, 3.63) will take on Ben Sheets (3-1, 1.46) in the first of three tonight. Raker Erik Kratz gets the night off this evening in favor of Worley's battery mate Brian Schneider.
Tonight's lineup vs ATL: Rollins SS, Brown LF, Utley 2B, Howard 1B, Mayberry CF, Schierholtz RF, Frandsen 3B, Schneider C, Worley P.

7:05 from the Bank. We can always get behind beating the Barves.
