Philadelpia Phillies (88-47) at Florida Marlins (61-77)
HAPPY LABOR DAY WEEKEND, NATION!
Welp, this is it. Today’s game will be the final contest that the Phillies will play at Sun Life Stadium (or whatever it’s been called over the years). Without a doubt, last year’s perfect game by Roy Halladay will go down one of– if not THE best memory there. And isn’t it fitting that Roy himself gets the ball today?
That’s right, Halladay will pitch the final game in the stadium where he threw Major League Baseball’s 20th perfect game. Optimus Roy–and I call him that because I was bored one day and made this–is the front-runner to win the Cy Young Award. Twenty-three year old Clayton Kershaw (23?!?) is a verrrry close second, but right now it’s Roy’s to lose.
