Game 95 open thread: The Must-Watch Trainwreck Edition

We're going to try something new here at The Phillies Zone as the 2010 Phillies reach a crossroads in their season. Before every game we will post a discussion thread. It can be a place to mingle, vent and cheer. So leave your comments below and see what other fans are saying.

ST. LOUIS -- The rotation remains "TBA" and "TBA" for this weekend against Colorado at Citizens Bank Park. The Phillies had better hope TBA has a lot of bullets in him.

No, Roy Oswalt is not here. And no, it's likely he won't be here this weekend. Phillies GM Ruben Amaro Jr. could provide no update on a possible rotation for this weekend. The team is awaiting results on an MRI to Jamie Moyer's left elbow done this morning in Philadelphia. Until then, they will wait to make their pitching plan public.

But I would count on it being Kyle Kendrick and J.A. Happ for Saturday and Sunday.

It doesn't matter today as the Phillies look to avoid a sweep at the hands of the Cardinals. It's been a disastrous road trip in many ways. Cole Hamels tries to stop the bleeding.

Placido Polanco remains in the leadoff spot while Jimmy Rollins bats sixth again. They go against Adam Wainwright, who has sick numbers: 14-5, 2.02 ERA.
