I was in the mood for a Marcus Thames highlight today for no apparent reason, and the walk-off homer against Jonathan Papelbon always does the trick. That game was ridiculous. The Yankees scored like five runs in the first inning against Daisuke Matsuzaka, but Phil Hughes blew the lead over the next few innings. New York came back and re-took the lead before the bullpen blew it. Alex Rodriguez tied the game with a two-run homer off Papelbon earlier in the inning. Easily one of the most frustratingly awesome games I’ve ever attended in person.
Here is your open thread for the evening. The ESPN Sunday Night Game is a total dud, the Mets at the Nationals (Niese vs. Ohlendorf). There are no NFL games either, so I guess Breaking Bad it is. Not that I’m complaining. Feel free to talk about whatever you like here. Enjoy.
