⚾️Phillies: It’s Opening Day, and our Phils are kicking off the season against (one of) our favorite teams to hate, the Atlanta Braves. Given the NL East divisional rivals both have sluggers like first basemen Freddie Freeman from Atlanta and from Philly, expect a shoot out.
- Thanks to that scoring power, this matchup is going to come down to which ace, Atlanta’s Max Fried or Philly’s Aaron Nola, can throw more curveballs. Find out when the first pitch is thrown at 3 p.m. ET.
🏒Flyers: The Buffalo Sabres ended their 18-game losing streak by clobbering the Flyers 6–1 last night. How embarrassing. Even though Philly's defense has struggled all season, we never expected them to lose like this to a bottom-of-the-basement team. Yikes.
- To send a wake up call to the backsliding Flyers this week, head coach Alan Vigneault made former starting goalie Carter Hart a and the rights of defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere.
- But based on last night’s performance, it didn’t seem to have worked. Maybe he should let give the next pep talk instead.
🏀Sixers: The Sixers, who are All-Star Joel Embiid due to injury, also struggled this week, to the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday. With the Brooklyn Nets closing in on the Sixers’ top spot in the East, the boys need a statement win against the Cleveland Cavaliers tonight at 7 p.m. ET.
