Vance Worley

Sorry, no time for a preview today, as other things managed to run interference. The rubber game, and who better than Ian Kennedy to take the mound? Not that Worley has been chopped liver, of course - that's a nice W/L record and ERA - but I've got to go with our guy. Helps that the Phillies have their B-lineup out there, with no Howard, Victorino (suspended) or Ruiz starting for them.

  1. Willie Bloomquist SS
  2. Ryan Roberts 3B
  3. Justin Upton RF
  4. Miguel Montero C
  5. Chris Young CF
  6. Kelly Johnson 2B
  7. Paul Goldschmidt 1B
  8. Gerardo Parra LF
  9. Ian Kennedy RHP

Looks like the weather was a bit dodgy earlier, with the tarp on the field earlier, but Nick Piecoro is saying on Twitter that it "Looks OK," so we'll see how that goes. With the winning streak over, the image embargo is lifted, but no cartoon equines will be permitted. It's just too GLB.
