The Twitter was a buzz this morning when word broke that Phillies 3B Michael Young cleared waivers and was later pulled from Charlie Manuel’s starting lineup. Many thought it meant that a Young trade was imminent. Alas, he’s just working with a sore hammy and Charlie took him out of the lineup.
Which leaves the Phillies with one wacky lineup for the 1:05 game this afternoon against the Chicago Cubs.
Kevin Frandsen leads off and Carlos Ruiz bats second. Okay then.
Your pitching matchup today is RHP Jeff Samardzija (6-10, 3.78) vs. RHP Ethan Martin (0-1, 12.46) who will look to put his rough first start behind him.
The Phillies may be bad at baseball but watching bad baseball sure beats working, doesn’t it?
