Anyway, here’s an open thread for the night. Lots of day games today so there’s a relatively light MLB schedule tonight. ESPN (Red Sox vs. Orioles), ESPN+ (Athletics vs. Rangers), and MLB Network (regional) will all have games. Talk about those games, the trade deadline activity, this afternoon’s loss, or anything else except religion or politics right here. Thanks in advance.
Here’s an open thread for the night. There is a baseball game tonight! The Cubs and Cardinals are playing at 7pm ET and ESPN will have the broadcast. That is apparently a regularly scheduled game too. I thought it was a makeup game, but no, they’re playing a makeup game as part of a doubleheader Saturday. Huh. Whatever. Talk about that, the Lindor and Ramirez article, or anything else right here, just not religion or politics. Thanks in advance.
Here is an open thread for the night. There is a whole bunch of nothing going on, so you’re on your own for entertaining. Talk about anything that is not religion or politics right here. Have at it.
The Home Run Derby is a little less exciting this year. Last year Aaron Judge stole the show and won the whole damn thing convincingly, but unfortunately he elected not to defend his title this year. A bummer — I’m not sure there’s anything in baseball I enjoy more than watching Judge hit dingers — though it’s probably for the best. The extra rest can only help.
A few years ago MLB revamped the Home Run Derby format to make things more exciting and hey, it worked. Now it’s a head-to-head bracket style tournament with a race against the clock. We’ve seen a few brackets go down to the final seconds in recent years. Here is the 2018 Home Run Derby bracket:
I’m going to put my money on — note: I am not actually putting money on the Home Run Derby — on Jesus Aguilar. Why? No reason, really. He socks dingers and I enjoy watching him play. Good story too. Aguilar spent a long time in the minors before finally getting a chance to prove himself in the big leagues, and he’s made the most of his opportunity.
The 2018 Home Run Derby will begin at 8pm ET and you can watch on ESPN. Talk about the Home Run Derby or anything else here tonight.
Here’s an open thread for this Yankees baseball-less night. MLB Network is showing two regional games tonight and ESPN+ will have a West Coast night game as well. That’s pretty much it. There are no World Cup games today. Discuss anything that isn’t religion or politics right here. Thanks in advance.
Here is an open thread for this night without Yankees baseball. The decisive Game Three of the 2018 College World Series Finals is on right now (ESPN2), and if you haven’t watched at all, you’ve missed a heck of a series. The series should’ve ended last night, but a foul pop-up wasn’t caught. ESPN will have the Red Sox and Angels, and that’s pretty much it. Light MLB schedule tonight. Talk about those games, the Gardner article, or anything that isn’t religion or politics right here. Thanks in advance.
Here is an open thread for the night. MLB Network is carrying regional games at 7pm ET and 10pm ET, and ESPN+ will have the Brewers and Cardinals. The College World Series is going on and the NBA draft is tonight (7pm ET on ESPN). Will the Knicks screw it up? Tune in to find out! Talk about that stuff or anything else here, as long as it’s not religion or politics. Have at it.
