Anibal Sanchez (7-6, 4.01) vs. Roy Halladay (15-5, 2.56)
Doesn’t look like they’ll get this one in. With the early rain bands of Hurricane Irene already hitting the Philadelphia area, I’m not sure baseball is in the cards for today unfortunately. A Friday doubleheader would have been best, but it appears as though the Marlins nixed that because they were already playing two DH’s in five days.
Whatever the case may be, if you were looking forward to sitting back, relaxing, and waiting on impending doom, looks like you’ll have to wait until another life.
Unfortunately, this will allow everyone to stew a little bit longer after Friday’s ugly defeat. Clay Hensley, for God’s sake!
Lineup: Victorino CF, Polanco 3B, Utley 2B, Howard 1B, Pence RF, Mayberry, Jr LF, Ruiz C, Valdez SS, Halladay P
Your Gameday Beer – Margaritas
With a tropical storm ready to hit, have a tropical drink. Love a good margarita (extra salt, please!) on the rocks to chill out with on any day, even a rainy one. Homemade burritos are on the menu for today’s game (if they get it in) so I’m looking forward to whatever Irene brings us. We’re well stocked with all the essentials – Margarita mix, beer, scotch, steak, eggs, milk. Enjoy the ride, and the game if they get it in!
