Thursday Night Open Thread

The Yankees have an off-day today and will open a pretty important three-game series with the Orioles tomorrow. They play them again next weekend too. This is a chance to gain some ground in the wildcard race. Anyway, make sure you check out Wally Matthews’ story on outfield positioning. Yankees outfielders literally keep positioning notes under their hats and look at them prior to each at-bat. Neat stuff.

Here is tonight’s open thread. The Mets are playing, MLB Network is showing a regional game, and there are some NFL preseason games on too. Talk about that stuff or anything else right here. Go nuts.

Tuesday Night Open Thread

Tonight the Yankees will play their final West Coast night game of the season. Hooray for that. The Yankees have three more 8pm ET starts remaining (in Kansas City next week), then it’s nothing but day games and 7pm ET starts the rest of the way. That’s music to my ears. This team isn’t worth staying up late for, to be honest.

Anyway, here is tonight’s open thread. MLB Network is showing a regional game, and aside from that, you’re on your own for entertainment. Have at it.

Monday Night Open Thread

The Yankees are still out on the West Coast, which means first pitch is still a few hours away. Here’s an open thread to keep you busy until the regular game thread comes along. MLB Network is showing a regional game and the Olympics are over, so otherwise you’re pretty much on your own for entertainment tonight. Have at it.

Site Note: Just FYI, I’m going to be out of town the next few days, so posting is going to be a little lighter than usual the rest of the week. Things will be back to normal next week.

Sunday Night Open Thread

Here is your open thread for the rest of the weekend. The Mets and Giants are the ESPN Sunday Night Baseball game (Syndergaard vs. Samardzija), plus the Olympic closing ceremonies are on too. That’ll be fun. You all know how these open threads work by now, so have at it.

Saturday Open Thread

We’re still a few hours away from first pitch between the Yankees and Angels, so here’s an open thread to keep you busy for the time being. The Mets and Giants are on FOX Sports 1 (4pm ET), there are some NFL preseason games on as well, plus the Olympics are still going on. Talk about that stuff or whatever else here. The regular game thread will be along later.

Friday Night Open Thread

The Yankees are in Orange County and start their three-game series with the Angels a little later tonight. Here’s an open thread to hold you over until the regular game thread comes along. MLB Network is showing some regional games, and apparently there’s a preseason NFL game on as well. The Olympics are still going too. Talk about that stuff or anything else here.

Thursday Night Open Thread

It actually is Thursday today. I double-checked after making a little headline mistake with yesterday’s open thread. My bad. Anyway, I recommend checking out this Rob Arthur article on baseball’s rising home run rate. The article is a week old but I didn’t get a chance to read it until today. Pretty good stuff. Give it a whirl.

Here is tonight’s open thread. MLB Network is showing some regional games, the Mets are playing out on the West Coast later tonight, and there’s some preseason NFL games on as well as the Olympics. You folks know how these open threads work, so have at it.
