Following Sunday night's loss to the Cardinals, Jimmy Rollins took to Twitter as he's been accustomed to do as of late. Young James said the fans were too quiet last night, which after sitting in the upper deck for the entire game, I'd have to agree with.

But after seeing Jimmy's tweet, my immediate reaction was to respond "and so were the bats." I didn't need to say it, however, because I already saw multiple people sharing the same thought with Jimmy.

To Rollins' defense, he wasn't wrong at all. Citizens Bank Park was way too quiet for a playoff game. But the Phillies did only manage one hit after the second inning. That certainly didn't help.

From where I was sitting and the people around me, it seemed like the crowd really wanted to get into it, but there were no plays on the field that allowed for any sort of sustained rally that could really wake the crowd up.

What comes first, a quiet CBP or quiet bats?

What do you think about Jimmy calling out the crowd? I feel like he could have done it in a much more encouraging way. Maybe say something about how "the team didn't bring their A-game just like crowd failed to do on Sunday night. We're going to step up our game and hopefully you fans can step up yours when we bring this thing back to the Bank."

You know, a reality check with a rallying cry.

Do you have any problems with what J-Roll said or how he went about it?

Today's Lineup: Tommy Joseph starts for first time since Wednesday

The juggling of Rhys Hoskins and Tommy Joseph at first base will continue today in Atlanta.

After only appearing as a pinch-hitter in last night's loss to the Braves, Joseph will draw back into the lineup at first for the Phillies in today's series finale. He'll bat fifth, right behind Hoskins, who's in the clean-up spot for manager Pete Mackanin.

With Hoskins, a natural first basemen who's been adjusting to left field, tearing up the scene, questions are aplenty over what the Phils plan to do at the position. Hoskins isn't going anywhere, obviously, so the questions center around Joseph. Any at-bats he gets this last week are important for his audition.
Joseph is hitting .240 on the season, but does have 22 homers and 68 RBIs on the season.

Today marks Joseph's first start since Wednesday's win over the Dodgers. He appeared as a pinch-hitter Thursday and last night, but did not play at all on Friday.

Hoskins is back in left this afternoon. He's up to 18 homers and 41 RBIs on his short MLB season. He did contribute an RBI double in last night's loss.

J.P. Crawford, who's batting seventh, moves back to his natural shortstop spot today after playing second last night for Cesar Hernandez. Freddy Galvis will have the afternoon off. Crawford has a .245 average and 6 RBIs in 17 games with the big club.

Odubel Herrera has the afternoon off, as well.
