Saturday Night Open Thread

By

It’s far too nice out to be stuck inside tonight, at least if you’re in New York. However, if you’re stuck at work or have time to kill or live in another time zone, use this as your open thread for the night. The Mets are playing the Nationals (Niese vs. Jackson), plus MLB Network will air a game as well. Who you see depends on where you live. The Giants and Jets are also playing a preseason game, which you can watch on CBS. You folks know what to do by now, so have at it.

    Someone get a message to girardi. He is in love with a lineup that isn’t hitting in clutch and is not getting any runners home
    He better change that lineup, seek of seeing Martin at 7. He needs to hit 9

    • DERP

    Hey mike question for ya, do u know of any website to watch football games I’m a bucs fan and can never find a good site to watch them play on.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

      No idea, sorry.

    • Kramerica Industries

      I could help you, but not on this website.

      The site I know is likely illegal, and I’m not putting this site at legal risk for anything like that.

    • MWA ASSTTASTIC

      From a fellow diehard Bucs fan from NJ to another, I can help you too my friend. Whats your email address? I’ll send you the link

    Sucks to see a solid outing by Phelps go to waste, but there’s a difference between a bad pitcher and a good pitcher having a bad season. Jon Lester is still a very good pitcher and, even when he’s looked bad for a large chunk of the season, he’ll remind you who he is sometimes. You haven’t seen the last of him by a longshot.

    That being said, I like our chances tomorrow.

    I am also thinking rather not-nice thoughts about Pedro Ciriaco right now.

      So the question is, does Phelps get another start on Friday, with CC going on Saturday? They can reinsert CC at any point after he comes off the DL, but he doesn’t have to pitch Friday. Perhaps one more look at Phelps, and Nova continues his recent suckitude, maybe Phelps stays. He’s pitched against the Rangers and the Red Sox his last two starts and certainly held up well. I’d like to see more.

        Might not be a bad idea, that way all of the starters can get a bit of extra rest. The drawback would be that they would be a bit short in the bullpen for a couple of days, but they should be able to survive that.
        I’m wondering who the demotion is going to be when CC is activated. Seems like Joba would be the most logical choice.

    Hey mike question for your, I’ve been looking for a good site to watch my Tampa bay bucs play can never find a good one, any ideas??

  • The Real Greg

    I hope the moods is better on here than on the Jets forum. “We suck! We suck!” “Everybody is awful”

    My god, it makes me want to kill myself. That’s why I look for positivity here.

    • The Media

      Hello, Greg. We are speaking ill of the Yankees.

      • Hall and Nokes

        The Yankees are better than the Jets though, for what it’s worth.

        • RetroRob

          I think the Yankees might field a better football team than the Jets.

      • The Real Greg

        Very funny, actually. Made me laugh so I thank you.

  • Kramerica Industries

    Didn’t get too much of a chance to watch today, but a home loss to the Red Sox?

    Color me shocked.

    • Chilango

      we’ve lost 3 of 5 to them so far at home

      • Kramerica Industries

        And 13 of the last 18.

  • Dino Velvet

    Mike,

    when was that fly over (in the above photo)?

    I’ve seen flyovers during the playoffs, but never 7 jets — it’s usually just 2.

  • DERP

    Delmon Young should kill himself.

  • DERP

    Fuck Rick Porcello hard

  • rogue

    The way it used to be…

    Yankees fan = Giants Fan
    Mets fan = Jets Fan

    Go Giants!!!

    • Hall and Nokes

      Anyone who roots for the jets has made a grievous error.

      • Pat D

        The entire franchise exists because of one horribly played game.

  • DERP

    Johnny Peralta doing some great work

  • Mick taylor

    How come andruw jones is still onthis team when he isalmost down to 199?

    • Pat D

      Because Ronnie Wood hasn’t shown up to replace him yet.

      • Robinson Tilapia

        ietc

  • Pasta Stumbling Sojo

    Wow, CJ Wilson just turned an 8-0 lead into an 8-7 lead. Like last night, it would be nice if the Rays would lose, but if they’re going to win, at least they’re beating up the Angels and their vaunted pitching.
