The Yankees are off today but their closest competitors are not. The Orioles already pounded former Yankees farmhand Jose Quintana this afternoon, so they remain three games back in the loss column heading into this weekend’s series in the Bronx. The Rays are four games back going into tonight’s game against the Blue Jays. I suppose the good news is that regardless of what happens this weekend, the Yankees will head to Tampa next week no worse than tied for first place. I would much appreciate that not happening, however. Win some games, please.
Here is your open thread for the evening. The Cardinals and Nationals (Garcia vs. Jackson) will be on MLB Network, but as far as I know the Jets preseason game will not be broadcast on television anywhere. They won’t score any touchdowns anyway, so there, now you know what happens. You folks know how these things work by now, so go for it.
