The offense is the key. Jimmy Rollins, Chase Utley and Ryan Howard have got to get going - it's just that simple. The starting pitching has been superb and the bullpen has held their own, but the big boppers have to start putting it together and putting it together now. Let's go Phils!
Phillies Probables: Roy Oswalt, Joe Blanton, Cole Hamels
Padres Probables: Mat Latos, Jon Garland, Clayton Richard
