For the final time during the 2012 regular season, the Yankees had a scheduled off-day today. They’ll wrap the year up with 16 games in 16 days, including the next six at home. Only three of those 16 games — this weekend’s home series against the Athletics — will be played against a team with a winning record. That said, you know the Blue Jays (seven games) and Red Sox (three games) will come to play. Those clubs are essentially in their playoffs right now and would love nothing more than to throw a wrench into the Bombers’ postseason plans.
Anyway, here is your open thread for the evening. The Mets are playing the Phillies and the pitching matchup is top notch (Dickey vs. Lee), plus MLB Network will air a game as well. Those of you in the Tri-State Area will see the Rays at the Red Sox (Cobb vs. Cook). The Broncos and Falcons are your Monday Night Football game. You folks know how these things work by now, so have at it.
