Update (7:31pm): T-Kep tweets that Ian Kennedy might be called up soon. That would be cool.
It’s not major news, but it’s news nonetheless. Suzyn Waldman won’t be around calling games during the Seattle series, instead she’ll be off celebrating Rosh Hashannah. Apparently it takes two people to replace her, as WFAN’s Sweeny Murti inherits pre- and post-game duties while Kim Jones takes over during games. Don’t worry, Suzy will be back in time for the Anaheim series.
Elsewhere, longtime Yankee farmhand and RAB’s 2008 Minor League Lifetime Achievement Award winner Matt Carson has been called up by the A’s and is in the lineup tonight. A big congrats goes out to Matt, I wish him nothing but the best.
Anyway, use this as your open thread until gametime later tonight. The Mets are playing the Nats in a battle of teams going nowhere, and if you’re into hockey the Rangers are taking on the Red Wings in preseason action. You can also come chill with me at MLBTR. Other than that, anything goes until the game starts, just be nice.
