Philadelphia Phillies (70-80) vs. Miami Marlins (55-95) Roy Halladay (3-4, 7.28) vs. Bryan Flynn (0-1, 10.13) Time: 7:05, Citizens Bank Park TV: CSN Weather: Cloudy, 58 Media: Twitter and Facebook Cliff Lee, one of the few true bright spots of this Phillies team, looks for win #14 tonight. With 1/3 of an inning, Lee will hit the 200 inning plateau for the sixth straight year. He’s been one of the steadiest pitchers in baseball during that time, yet he sort of flies under the radar because of how this team has taken a nosedive. I know Monday Night Football is on, but do yourself a favor and flip between the Phils and the Bengals/Steelers game. Who knows how much longer Lee will be in his prime and we should take in the fact that he’s still pitching at a supreme level. Last night, I wrote that. And Cliff Lee certainly did not disappoint. Tonight, can Roy Halladay find at least a shred of his old-self as he takes on the Marlins? It hasn’t been pretty for Halladay, although post-DL has been better than pre-DL. It’s hard to know what to expect exactly. And will this be Halladay’s final start in Philly? Ryne Sandberg joked that he wished he had a jersey for Maikel Franco to put on. Franco is visiting the team again today after accepting the Paul Owens award yesterday. I think I’m with Sandberg. Lineup: Hernandez CF, Rollins SS, Utley 2B, Ruiz C, Brown LF, Ruf RF, Frandsen 1B, Galvis 3B, Halladay P Gameday Beer: Rogue Dead Guy Ale With a hint of chill in the air, go for the thick, chocolaty stuff that reminds me of a cold, winters night in December. Rogue stays as tonights beer, but we move to the Chocolate Stout. Ebony in color with a rich creamy head. The mellow flavor of oats, chocolate malts and real chocolate are balanced perfectly with the right amount of hops for a bitter-sweet finish. Sold. -PG
