Carlos Ruiz returns to the lineup tonight. He’s batting fifth and catching. Oh, and Doc’s pitching.

I’m staring at this lineup card and all I see is “Barbershop Quartet,” “Skokie, Illinois,” “Redfoot,” and “Pierre.” I think someone's been fucking with us for the past five months.

  1. Somebody’s pretty stylie with the dry erase marker. Guess they got tired of charlie using crayons on it.

  2. any one understand why charlie continues to start martinez? hes hitting under 200. better question, why is he even on the team?

  3. @Brad – Martinez is playing because they really have no other options at third. Frandsen is hurt and Polanco fell over and can’t get up because his head is bulbous.
    Please don’t say Ty Wiggington.

  4. FIFTH!!?? Holy hell god damn fucking right FIIIIVE. sign of the beast. It would grand and glorious to step into playoffs in the last game of the season, on the nationals field.

  5. The Greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist…….. in the run for the playoffs.
    Making it back to .500 from the bloated corpse that was May-July baseball is admirable enough.
    Now let’s see how much they can blindside & sucker punch the remaining teams in the race to October!
    Glad to at least see them not down & out, still going down swinging at the very least. Everyone loves a comeback story.
    BTW: Kyle, where’s all the end of days, talk me back from the ledge, piss & vinegar now?
    Sometimes it feels good to eat your own words! Nom nom….

  6. Laurie Mascio Walski-please go make me a panini and a half iced tea half lemonad. thanks hun

  7. With the Phils seemingly back in the playoff hunt, Uncle Charlie won’t give Ruf the time of day or call up Asche.
