Friday Night Open Thread

2017 Draft: Nick Pratto
Comeback Kings: Yankees stun Cubs on Gardner's late homer for 3-2 win

Over the last few weeks MLB Trade Rumors has been running a series called “Inside the Draft Room,” in which they speak to scouting directors about notable recent draft classes. I was hoping they’d get to the 2006 Yankees draft at some point — the Yankees drafted and signed Ian Kennedy, Joba Chamberlain, Dellin Betances, Mark Melancon, and David Robertson that year, among others — and today they did exactly that. Here’s the link. Make sure you check it out. It’s a pretty great read.

Anyway, this is an open thread for the rest of the evening. The Mets are supposed to play tonight, but I’m not sure if that’s going to happen with the rain. MLB Network is showing a regional game, plus there’s NBA and NHL playoff action on as well. Talk about those games, this afternoon’s win, or anything else that isn’t politics or religion here.
