Sunday Open Thread

Here’s an open thread for the remainder of the weekend. MLB Network is showing a regional game right now, and the ESPN Sunday Night Game is the Rangers and Tigers. There are also NBA and NHL playoff games on. Talk about those games, this afternoon’s win, or anything else here. Just not religion or politics, por favor.

Monday Night Open Thread

The Yankees have yet another off-day today. Good grief. It seems like the Yankees have had an off-day after every series this year. Enjoy it, I guess. Starting tomorrow, the Yankees begin a stretch of 20 games in 20 days and 33 games in 34 days. After today, there’s only three off-days between now and the All-Star break. Whole lotta Yankee baseball coming your way the next few weeks.

Here is an open thread for the evening. The failing New York Mets are on the West Coast and don’t play until later tonight. ESPN will show the Astros and Marlins, MLB Network will have a regional game later on, and there is NBA and NHL playoff action as well. Talk about those games, the Derek Jeter ceremony, or anything else here as long as it’s not politics or religion.

Saturday Open Thread

This afternoon’s game was rained out, and tomorrow, prior to the second game of the doubleheader, the Yankees will retire Derek Jeter‘s No. 2. Jeter wrote a thank you letter to New York over at his site, the Players’ Tribune, so make sure you check that out. Hard to believe this is already the third year of post-Jeter era, isn’t? I still remember when he was a fresh-faced rookie who only got the shortstop job because Tony Fernandez hurt his knee. Now the Yankees are retiring Jeter’s number. It was quite a ride.

Here is an open thread for this suddenly Yankees baseball-less day. MLB Network is showing regional games pretty much all day and night, Fox Sports 1 will have a game this afternoon, and the Mets are playing later tonight. There are also some NBA and NHL playoff games on as well. Talk about that stuff, Jeter’s retirement, or anything else right here.

Wednesday Night Open Thread

An off-day on a Wednesday? Weird. Those are usually reserved for Mondays and Thursdays. Anyway, on this day without Yankees baseball, make sure you check out the SI cover story on Aaron Judge. So whenever Judge slips into a slump, which will happen because every player slumps at some point, we can blame the SI cover jinx. RIP Aaron Judge. His career died as he was doing what he loved: mashing dingers.

Here is an open thread for the off-night. There are no nationally broadcast MLB games tonight, though there are a bunch of NBA and NHL postseason games. Talk about that stuff, the Judge story, or anything else here that isn’t religion or politics. Thanks in advance.

Sunday Open Thread

The Yankees and Cubs finish up their three-game series later tonight, in the ESPN Sunday Night Game. Here’s an open thread until then. The Mets are playing right now and MLB Network will have a regional game as well. There are also a bunch of NBA and NHL playoff games. You folks know how these things work by now, so have at it.

Saturday Open Thread

The Yankees and Cubs won’t play the second game of their series for another few hours, so here’s an open thread for the time being. MLB Network has a regional game on right now, and in a little bit FOX Sports 1 will carry the Indians and Royals. Also, the (hockey) Rangers are playing Game Five of their second round playoff series right now on NBCSN. The best-of-seven series is tied at two games apiece, so this is kind of a big game. Talk about that stuff or anything else here. Just don’t be a jerk.

Friday Night Open Thread

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.
