Tuesday Night Open Thread

Finally, the last 10pm ET start time of the season. That makes it sound like we’ve had through sit through a ton of ’em when it’s really only been six or seven, but still, I’m getting old and staying up late to watch baseball isn’t as easy as it once was. Anyway, the Yankees and Angels continue their series out in Anaheim later tonight, so we’ve have a regular game thread along shortly.

For now, here’s the open thread for the night. The Mets and Cubs will be on ESPN, and that’s it for nationally televised games. You folks know what to do with these threads by now, so have at it.

Monday Night Open Thread

Earlier today MLB released the final All-Star Game voting updates. Here are the AL and NL. No Yankees are in position to start the game, not even close really, but at least some Royals players are falling out of the top spots at their positions. Mike Trout, Miguel Cabrera, Josh Donaldson, and Nelson Cruz are in line to start the game now. That’s better than Trout and eight Royals, which was the case a few weeks ago. Voting ends Thursday. Here’s the ballot. The All-Star Game starters will be announced Sunday and the rest of the rosters Monday.

Here is your open thread for the night. The Yankees are playing the Angels later tonight, so the regular game thread will be along in a few hours. ESPN is showing the Rangers and Orioles, and that’s about it. Talk about that game, the All-Star Game voting, or anything else right here.

Sunday Night Open Thread

Earlier today MLB announced a new format for the Home Run Derby. They tried a new format last season too, but it still took way too long, so this year’s event will be timed. The new rules are right here. There are now head-to-head matchups with one through eight seeding based on season homer totals, and each player gets five minutes to swing. There’s also bonus time based on homer distance. Could be cool? Maybe. We’ll see.

Anyway, here is tonight’s open thread. The Mets are still playing right now and the ESPN Sunday Night Game is the Cubs and Cardinals (Hammel vs. Martinez). Talk about those games, this afternoon’s loss, or anything else right here.

Saturday Night Open Thread

Happy Saturday, everyone. It’s raining here in New York but hopefully the weather is nice wherever you are. Here’s the nightly open thread. FOX is showing a bunch of regional games and MLB Network is airing a game later tonight. Talk about those games, this afternoon’s win, or anything else right here. Have at it.

Wednesday Night Open Thread

I kinda had a feeling the Yankees would score a ton of runs against Cole Hamels this afternoon. I mean, it’s not like the offense has been struggling, the pitching was clearly to blame during those last three losses, and it just seems like these Yankees have a knack for hitting great pitchers. Hamels, Jacob deGrom, Felix Hernandez, David Price … the Yankees roughed them all up this year. That’s always fun.

Here is tonight’s open thread as the Yankees head to Houston. The Mets are playing and ESPN2 is showing the Cubs and Dodgers later. Also, the decisive Game Three of the College World Series is on as well (8pm ET on ESPN). Vanderbilt is trying to repeat as nationals champs and Virginia is trying to get revenge for losing to Vandy in last year’s finals. Talk about those games, this afternoon’s win, or anything else here.

Father’s Day Open Thread

Happy Father’s Day to all you dads today. A lot of us can’t tell our dads we love them today, so if you have a chance to do it, make sure you do.

Here’s the open thread for the night. The Dodgers and Giants are the ESPN Sunday Night Game (Lincecum vs. Anderson), so talk about that game, this afternoon’s beatdown, or anything else right here.

Sunday Night Open Thread

Here is your open thread for the last few hours of the weekend. The Cubs and Reds are the ESPN Sunday Night Game (Lester vs. DeSclafani) and Game Five of the NBA Finals is on as well (8pm ET on ABC). Talk about those games or anything else right here. Talk about those games, this afternoon’s win, or anything else right here.
