I don’t know about you, but I was still pretty pumped about last night’s game when I woke up this morning. That doesn’t happen very often. Writing a recap usually gets me over a game pretty quickly, but not after something like that. All the drama of Ryan Dempster vs. Alex Rodriguez, Yankees vs. Red Sox, Fenway Park … all of that made for a rather intense 4+ hours. It was awesome. I couldn’t decide whether to use the Dempster vs. A-Rod video or that GIF of Joe Girardi nearly punching home plate ump Brian O’Nora, so I went with both. Why not?
Anyway, the Yankees are off today, so here is an open thread for the night. MLB Network will air a game, but who you see depends on where you live. I suspect Tri-Staters will see the Rays and Orioles, a game with implications for the Yankees. The Steelers and Redskins are your Monday Night (Preseason) Football game on ESPN, and later on ESPN2 with air the Red Sox at the Giants. Talk about any of that stuff and more right here. Enjoy.
