Rough night for Jake Diekman, who may be the least of the Phillies’ worries in the bullpen. He was terrible last night, but he was in the wrong spot.

So we were stuck with Diekman, and the outcome was just about inevitable.

But believe it or not, the haters were in the minority last night. Most fans – the real ones – offered Jake some words of encouragement. Those are the 36 Tweets that will warm your heart:


See, Jake? Jackie still loves you.
