These mid-West Coast trip off-days are always weird. It seems like the off-days should bookend the road trip and not come in the middle, but I guess you can’t please everyone with the schedule. The Athletics, who the Yankees will play these next three days, are traveling home from Chicago after losing two of three from the White Sox. So, instead of playing tonight, the Yankee wait. Such is life.
Here is your open thread for the night. The Red Sox and Rays (Lackey vs. Cobb) are on ESPN, and a win by Tampa would move the Yankees into a tie with Boston atop the AL East in the loss column. There are no NBA or NHL playoff games tonight, so Sox-Rays is your only nationally televised option. Talk about that game or anything else here. Have at it.
