Wednesday Night Open Thread

Yankees get just enough offense, just enough outs from the bullpen in 3-2 win over Rays
DotF: German dominates, Scranton evens championship series

According to multiple reports out of Japan, two-way sensation Shohei Otani will be coming over to MLB this offseason. Those reports are unconfirmed, of course. Jim Allen, who I trust on the Otani beat more than anyone, only says Otani’s desire to come to MLB has not wavered. Kyodo News says the Nippon Ham Fighters and Otani will talk things over after the season. We’ll see. We went through several “he’s coming to MLB oh wait maybe not” cycles with Yu Darvish and Masahiro Tanaka. No reason to think Otani will be any different.

Anyway, here is an open thread for the evening. The Mets are playing tonight and ESPN will have the Red Sox-Athletics (7pm ET) and Dodgers-Giants (10pm ET). Talk about those games, the ongoing Otani situation, this afternoon’s win, or anything else right here. Just not religion or politics. Get outta here with that.
