Jim Leyland retired from managing today, giving me a good enough excuse to post this video of him cursing out Barry Bonds in 1980-something. You are forewarned, the language is pretty harsh. I wouldn’t listen if I was around kids or whatever. The Tigers job is a pretty desirable one — I’d take that over the Nationals, the potential for instant success if off the charts — but I don’t think Joe Girardi would have left the Yankees for Detroit had he been given the chance. Girardi legitimately seemed to make a family decision.
Anyway, here is your open thread for this baseball-less night. The Monday Night Football Game is the Vikings and Giants (8pm ET on ESPN) and the Knicks are playing a preseason game. That’s pretty much it for local sports. Talk about either game or anything else right here. Have at it.
