Wednesday Night Open Thread


Another game against the Rockies means another 8:40pm ET start, so here’s an open thread to hold you over until the regular game thread. The Mets are playing and ESPN is showing Red Sox-Twins, plus you’ve got NHL (Rangers!) and NBA playoff action. Talk about any and all. Enjoy.

    *shakes head* Joe Girardi loves the strategery of the NL. Check out the lineup, Phelps hitting 8th, that’s what he thinks of Romine.

    • Havok9120

      You do remember that Gardner mostly batted 9th for, what, two years? For the sole purpose of lengthening the top of the lineup.

      • vicki

        yeah, this. i think he’s actually giving romine a bit of credit, grouping him with the guys who can hit. plus the righthanded bat in front of ggbg, instead of hafner’s lefty.

      • Dalek Jeter

        I never remember him hitting 9th behind the pitcher…but I’ve been saying that Gardner should be leading off for years honestly.

  • vicki

    ricky romero: not good.

    • SDB

      29 pitches, 4 hits, 2 walks, 1 out. Awesome.

      Ladies and gentlemen, your 2013 Offseason Champions!

      Toronto Blue Jays: not good.

  • Kramerica Industries

    Giving back a 4-0 lead in the 1st inning? Are you fucking kidding me?

    • vicki

      and then some.

    • vicki

      the most combined runs for both teams in an mlb game occurred on august 25th, 1922, when the cubs defeated the phils by the score of 26 to 23. the record may be in danger.

  • hello there

    Who is this dude Refsnyder? Dude is hitting 405. Perhaps a prospect profile from the powers that be?

  • SDB

    So I’m in need of a little fantasy baseball advice – Jimmy Rollins (my current SS) has been killing me in all offensive and fielding % metrics, and I need to make a change.

    Other available SS options I’m debating over are Martin Prado, Stephen Drew, Asdrubal Cabrera, Danny Espinosa and JJ Hardy. Suggestions?

    • Dalek Jeter

      I’d go w/ Cabrera, he’s got the highest upside of the group…

    • Manny’s BanWagon

      Are you sure Prado qualifies for SS? I thought he did for 3rd, 2nd and OF.

      Also how the heck are Prado and Asdrubal available??

      • SDB

        Yup, Yahoo has him listed as SS as well.

    • MannyGeee

      I would go Cabrera as well or Prado. That said, Stephen Drew will at some point start hitting, and he’ll be nice to have when that happens.

  • Get Phelps Up

    Wow that Red Sox/Twins game is nuts.

  • mustang

    Good day for Montero 1 for 4 HR, caught someone stealing and a pick off at 1st.

    • mustang

      In other news Pirates LF Starling Marte has quit MLB after being caught stealing and being pick off at 1st by Montero.


      • Dlsiii

        Same guy? Really? Do they have the same agent????

        • mustang

          Don’t know but worth checking.

  • Mads

    Why is Phelps batting 8th and Romine 9th?
