Emotional reaction immediately after the game
Even Cliff Lee couldn’t turn things around. The Phillies are doomed!
Less emotional, more optimistic reaction after thinking about it a bit
Maybe they just ran into a hot team at the wrong time. The Brewers seem to be clicking on all cylinders right now.
The Phillies had just drawn within one run when Jeff Manship entered the game. Manship allowed three runs to score without recording an out.
Miami Marlins (5-5) at Philadelphia Phillies (3-6)
Game time: 7:05 PM
Normally, a game against the Marlins would be a great way to end a losing streak. Unfortunately, things won’t be that easy, as the Marlins have Jose Fernandez on the mound. During his Rookie of the Year campaign in 2013, Fernandez gave the Phillies a lot of problems (0.50 ERA in three starts), and he’s off to a strong start in 2014.
A.J. Burnett will attempt to serve as a stopper. Hopefully his command is better than it was in his last start when he walked six batters in 5.2 innings against the Cubs. He’ll be contending with a Marlins lineup that has been surprisingly productive so far in 2014. The Marlins currently rank 5th in runs scored throughout baseball.

Philliedelphia - Former Phillies prospect Seth Rosin on the move again
It appears as if nobody really wants Seth Rosin that badly. Rosin was originally drafted by the San Francisco Giants. He was then traded to the Phillies as part of the Hunter Pence deal. The Phillies decided against protecting him on their 40 man roster, and he was subsequently selected by the Yankees, who then traded him to the Dodgers. After opening the season with them, he was cut and picked up by the Rangers. And now, the Rangers have designated him for assignment. In the end, this could eventually result in his return to the Phillies, who would probably accept him back.

Say what you will about Veterans Stadium, but I grew up watching baseball there, and I sometimes find myself feeling nostalgic for the old place.
