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.

HAPPY  LABOR DAY WEEKEND, NATION!

Y’know, Cole Hamels is pitching tonight. Aside from the purple jacket dancing and the dogs in backpacks (pictures courtesy of Zoo With Roy and The Fightins), he’s been pretty damn good. How good, you ask? What if I told you that Cole Hamels leads all National League starters in Win Probabilty Added? That (WPA) doesn’t mean he’s been the best pitcher, but it does mean that he’s helped the Phillies more than any other pitcher has helped their team. He’s still top 5 in xFIP. Onto the opposition.

Philadelpia Phillies (87-46) at Florida Marlins (60-76)

Roy Oswalt (6-8, 3.77) vs Brad Hand (1-4, 4.08)

Time: 7:10 PM ET, Sun Life Stadium
TV: CSN
Weather: Cloudy, 82 with chance of T-storms
Media: Twitter and  Facebook

Fresh off a 4-game sweep of the Reds, the Phillies head to Florida tonight for a three game series with the Marlins. It will be the last three games the Phillies will play in Joe Robbie Stadium/Pro Player Park/Land Shark Stadium/Sun Life Stadium/FloridaMarlinsBaseballTeam Stadium. Whatever you want to call it, this series marks the final time the Phillies will play there.

Taking the mound will be Roy Oswalt, and he is coming off a performance that has a lot of us worried. He gave up six runs over 12 hits in 5 2/3 innings a week ago. The twelve hits tied a career high. His stat line wasn’t what had us concerned, though. It was his decrease in velocity. His fastball averaged 90.76 mph, with a peak of 92.2 mph which is down from his previous start where his fastball averaged 92.22 and topped out at 94.1. Oswalt said it was nothing to worry about, so we’ll see if he was right tonight.

Weather: Mostly Sunny, 87º

Last night, the Phillies improved to an incredible forty games over .500.  On the other hand, the Reds are dipping below the .500 mark as the Phillies have a chance to sweep them this afternoon.

Gameday: Phillies (85-46) at Cincinnati Reds (67-68)

Philadelphia Phillies (85-46) at Cincinnati Reds (67-68)

Cliff Lee (14-7, 2.71) vs. Dontrelle Willis (0-3, 4.10)

Time: 7:10 p.m., Great American Ballpark
TV: CSN
Weather: Clear, 66º
Media: Twitter and Facebook

After a close win Monday and a laugher Tuesday, the Phillies look to win a four-game series in Cincinnati early tonight by riding Cliff Lee to victory.

Lee is on a roll again, a winner in each of his last five starts and holder of a 0.58 ERA in August. This Reds team, though, could present some problems.

Combined, this collection of Reds have hit .345/.373/.571 off Lee. Miguel Cairo, batting fifth tonight, is 8-for-16 against Lee with two doubles and a triple.

One Red who has killed Lee won’t be in the lineup, though. Scott Rolen (8-for-17, four XBH) has been limited to 65 games this year due to shoulder problems.

Philadelphia Phillies (84-46) vs. Cincinnati Reds (67-67)

Roy Halladay (15-5, 2.56) vs Bronson Arroyo (8-10, 5.02)

Time: 7:10 p.m., Great American Ballpark
TV: PHL 17
Weather: Broken clouds, 74
Media: Twitter and  Facebook

In the second game of this four game series, the Phillies will send Roy Halladay to the mound; he hopes to have the same success against the Reds as he did last postseason when he threw a no-hitter. He’s coming off an outing that was cut short due to rain in which he tossed five innings, giving up two runs. Before that, he blew the lead in the ninth inning of a game against Arizona. It’d be nice if he could bounce back with a solid outing tonight.

Thank God, some effing baseball…finally! The Phillies now hit the road for the start of a seven-game road trip and will do so with a healthy Cole Hamels, who starts tonight.

He threw a bullpen late last week which Rich Dubee called “fantastic.” That’s always a good sign. Hamels has also been fantastic against the Reds during his career. They just can’t hit Cole; he’s 7-0 with a 1.43 ERA in the regular season, having given up just 33 hits in 56 innings. Ridiculous. And that doesn’t even take into account his shutout in Game 3 of last years NLDS in Cincinnati.

Florida Marlins (59-72) at Philadelphia Phillies (83-46)

Anibal Sanchez (7-6, 4.01) vs. Roy Halladay (15-5, 2.56)

Time: 1:05 p.m., Citizens Bank Park
TV: Comcast SportsNet
Weather: Rain/Wind, 77
Media: Twitter and Facebook

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!

Gameday: Marlins (58-72) vs. Phillies (83-45)

Florida Marlins (58-72) at Philadelphia Phillies (83-45)

Clay Hensley (1-5, 5.47) vs. Roy Oswalt (6-7, 3.51)

Time: 7:05 p.m., Citizens Bank Park
TV: Comcast SportsNet
Weather: Sunny, 81

Try and keep up with me here. Saturday’s Day-Night doubleheader is now just a day game. The night portion of the double dip has been postponed until September 15, time to be determined. So Sunday’s game is now being played Saturday, and Saturday’s game has been canceled due to that Irene bitch.

Rich Dubee says Roy Halladay will pitch tomorrow(if they even get it in), then with the off day Sunday, there is uncertainty. Cole Hamels was slated to return from the DL, and it’s unlikely they’ll slide him back an further. Cliff Lee also needs to throw, so keep an eye on that situation.

Anywho, for tonight’s game, it seems like the ultimate mismatch on the mound. Roy Oswalt is back to being healthy and coming off a great performance (8 shutout innings against the Nats). Clay Hensley is not, he was just shelled last week (7 earned runs in 3 2/3 innings).

New York Mets (60-68) at Philadelphia Phillies (83-44)

Mike Pelfrey, RHP (6-10, 4.61) vs. Kyle Kendrick, RHP (7-5, 3.24)

Time: 1:05 p.m., Citizens Bank Park
TV: Comcast SportsNet
Weather: Sunny, 81
Media: Twitter and Facebook

Benedick: That [Kyle Kendrick pitches], I thank h[im]; that [he wins], I likewise give [him] most humble thanks. But that I will have a recheat winded in my forehead or hang my bugle in an invisible baldrick, all [Kendricks] shall pardon me. Because I will not do them the wrong to mistrust any, I will do myself the right to trust none. And the fine is, for the which I may go the finer, I will live a bachelor.

Prince: I shall see thee, ere I die, look pale with [Kendrick].

Benedick: With [Halladay], with [Lee], or with [Hamels], my lord, not with [Kendrick]. Prove that ever I lose more blood with love than I will get again with drinking, pick out mine eyes with a ballad-maker’s pen and hang me up at the door of a brothel house for the sign of blind [Kendrick].

Prince: Well, if ever thou dost fall from this faith, thou wilt prove a notable argument.
