So … Gerrit Cole dominated the best offensive team in the league in their own ballpark with his team down one game-to-none in a best-of-five playoff series this afternoon. Oh, and he drove in a run with a single back up the middle. He’s already a better pitcher and hitter than anyone on the Yankees roster. Sigh. The video isn’t embeddable, but here’s the link.
Anyway, here is your open thread for the wonderful Friday evening. The Dodgers and Braves (Greinke vs. Minor) are playing right now on TBS, and later tonight the Tigers and Athletics (Scherzer vs. Colon) will play at 9:37pm ET, also on TBS. The Devils and Islanders are also playing (each other), so there’s plenty to talk about. As you know, anything goes here. Enjoy.
