Off-days have a tendency to be poorly timed during the regular season. Players either tire because they don’t get enough of ‘em or lose their rhythm because they get too many. Most of that is nonsense though, players both are used to playing everyday and enjoy the rest. Today’s off-day for travel to Detroit for the ALCS came at exactly the right time though. The Yankees are just a mess right now, specifically offensively, and spending a day away from the park sure seems like a good idea at moment. Will it actually help? Eh, maybe. Either way, I think the fans could use the night away from the Yankees as well, these last five games have been rough.
Here is your open thread for the evening. The Giants and Cardinals (Vogelsong vs. Carpenter) will play Game Two of their NLCS matchup at 8pm ET on FOX, plus the Monday Night Football game is the Broncos at the Chargers (8:20pm ET on ESPN). You folks all know what to do by now, so use this thread to talk about anything other than politics.
