Saturday Night Open Thread

By

We’ve got some time to kill before the Yankees try to end their three-game losing streak against the Angels tonight, so here’s an open thread to help keep everyone busy. There’s a plethora of college football on, making me wish I actually following the sport. Oh well. Anything goes here, talk about whatever your heart desires.

    SI Yankees playing tonight. Game 3 of 3 game series against Brooklyn Cyclones on 90.3 for the NY Penn League Semifinals.

    The big guy gets paid for nights like tonight.

    A win would be really nice right now, and would help calm some enveloping nerves. Hope he outpitches Haren and the O gets out of their collective funk right now. The first nine days of this month remind me far too much of Sept. 2010, in that the Yankees were on the latter half of an eight game streak when the month began, and struggled mightily from that point forth.

    The next three opposing pitchers won’t be any walk in the park. Gonna need another solid SP performance tonight.

      Yeah, would be nice to see them get back on track tonight. Last year September kind of sucked, but they did turn it back on in the ALDS pretty quickly. Anyone remember the horrendous end of 2000 season? (5-16 over their last 21 games) That post season worked out pretty well.

        Too bad I was 7 that year, although I do remember Jeter’s 1st pitch homer in I believe game 4 of the WS that year.

      • Kramerica Industries says:

        This is true, but I’m not sure what the point is supposed to be.

        I mean, it isn’t the best thing to enter the playoffs playing like shit, is it? They turned it around quickly, but look who they played in the opening round? A team that has lost 12 straight playoff games and is 2-12 in the past decade against the Yankees in the playoffs, let alone their wretched regular season marks.

        I don’t care who the Yankees ultimately get between Detroit and Texas. I just hope they are opening the playoffs in the Bronx, something that would be a lot more likely if they had won a game or two in the past few days.

    Kyle Weiland is one ugly rat faced dude.

  4. Nuke LaDoosh says:

    So, if Jesus gets in a game late for some defensive reps behind the plate, and Mo comes in to pitch the ninth, will that be the first Father/Son battery in the history of Baseball?

  5. Jesse says:

    To be honest: Minor League Baseball > College Football

  6. Brian S. says:

    Okay this is the second day in a row that the Yankees should have gotten plenty of sleep. Time for the offense to produce.

  7. Jesse says:

    Random Question: But what is the cutoff for the number of AB’s/PA’s to be eligible for Rookie of the Year next year?

  8. Tom Zig says:

    is it time to consider dropping Tex in the batting order?

  9. Jesse says:

    I know there’s a zero % chance of this actually happening, but who would entertain the idea of starting Dellin Betances in place of A.J Burnett during the Seattle series?

  10. Plank says:

    Is William Oliver too old to be a prospect?

  11. Tarik says:

    Does anybody know why Nunez is in RF and not Jones?

  12. Jesse says:

    Is Kramer Sneed a prospect? Does anyone have a scouting report on him, or at least know anything about him except the stats?

  13. Kramerica Industries says:

    146 games into the season, and the Toronto Blue Jays have personified mediocrity to this point:

    73-73
    37-36 home
    36-37 away
    681 runs scored
    681 runs allowed

    Impressive.

  14. pat says:

    Holy shit, Will Oliver.

  15. LiterallyFigurative says:

    3-1 Rays in the 5th

    • Jesse says:

      The Sawx need to call up Super Prospects Jose Iglesias and Will Middlebrooks to join Ryan Lavahhhhhhnway as the three greatest trio of prospects in the history of the game. They’re so great that they already have HOF plaques in their name.
