A few minutes into the calm contentedness that followed the Phillies'
walkoff win on Opening Day, another realization set in. Cliff Lee is
pitching game two...
We've lived in that reality since he came
back to us in December, but there's no diminishing the feeling of
knowing that after the Phillies came back for a demoralizing win in game
one of a series, Charlie will march out another Cy Young winner the
I don't care what that New York Times article said,
that's gotta suck for the nine hitters striding to the plate from the
visiting dugout tonight. That's before we even get to game three, when
Houston's former ace, our third starter, will face Bud Norris (JA Happ

Now, as we saw yesterday, anything can happen. It'll be a chilly
night, and there's no telling whether the Phillies offense will resemble

Oh man, oh man, oh man. It's finally here. The 2017-18 Sixers season is underway with our squad locked in a pretty tightly contested game down in Washington after a quarter of play.
We've already seen Joel Embiid attempt to destroy the world -- and get fouled.
But the most buzzed about moment from the first frame of the Sixers' young season was clearly when Markelle Fultz went to the foul line and... well, tossed up some ugly bricks.
This isn't the first time we've seen this but it is the first time non-preseason Sixers fans are seeing it. We wondered aloud if the Sixers were doing the right thing with Fulz prior to tonight's game. The lack of information on his injuries is troubling. So what's the deal with that form?
Well, Twitter had a field day with it.
Although Fultz's shoulder looked perfectly fine on this delicious block! He also had a couple of early buckets.
It's a long season, rook. Just please work on that free throw motion.
