Sunday Open Thread

Here is an open thread for the rest of the weekend. MLB Network is showing a regional game this afternoon, and the ESPN Sunday Night Game is the Mets and Pirates, for some reason. They’re a combined 43-54. I guess it’s better than the Yankees having to play Sunday night. There are no NBA or NHL playoff games tonight, so it’s baseball or bust as far as the four major sports go. You know how these things work by now, so have at it.

Saturday Open Thread

Here is an open thread for the rest of the day. The Mets are playing tonight and MLB Network will have a regional game later on. That’s pretty much it. There are no NBA or NHL playoff games today. Talk about those games, this afternoon’s win, or anything else here.

Thursday Night Open Thread

The Yankees were rained out today, but not even rain can stop HOPE Week. Today the Yankees held an event at Yankee Stadium to benefit A Moment of Magic, an organization dedicated to helping sick children by “restoring the magic of believing at a time when a child needs to ‘just be a kid’ and reminding them to be brave, strong, and fearless.” Several players and Brian Cashman dressed up as superheroes for the kids. Here are all the photos. Click through to see Masahiro Tanaka as a Ninja Turtle, Luis Severino as Iron Man, CC Sabathia as Superman, Michael Pineda as Wolverine, Jordan Montgomery as Captain America, and Cashman as Spiderman. Awesome stuff.

Here is an open thread for this suddenly Yankees baseball-less night. MLB Network is showing regional games at both 7pm ET and 10 pm ET, plus there are NBA and NHL playoff games on too. (Game Seven in the NHL!). Talk about those games, HOPE Week, or anything else here. Just not religion or politics. Get that outta here.

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.
