That doesn’t look very welcoming, does it? That’s a picture of the bullpen (presumably the home bullpen) at the Old Yankee Stadium, a grimy place that looks more like a Penn Station bathroom than a place where million dollar athletes spend the big chunk of their day. I’m certain the New Stadium has state-of-the-art bullpen quarters, or at least I hope it does for the relievers’ sake. Yuck. The picture comes courtesy of Andy Gray, by the way.
Anyway, here is your open thread for this baseball-less night. The Rangers are playing, but they’re on the west coast and don’t start until 10pm ET. That’s it for local sports. What a depressing weekday evening. Talk about whatever you want here, have at it.
