Sunday Night Open Thread

Here is the open thread for the last few hours of the weekend. The ESPN Sunday Night Game is the Cardinals at the Dodgers (Lynn vs. Greinke), and I guess the NBA finally decided to get around to playing Game Two of the Finals as well (8pm ET on ABC). Talk about those games, this afternoon’s win, or anything else right here.

Thursday Night Open Thread

The Yankees have played 54 games this year, so the season is exactly one-third complete. They are 29-25 with a +19 run differential. Last year they were 29-25 with a -10 run differential at the one-third point, and the year before that they were 31-23 with +18 run differential. If you’d have told me before the season the Yankees would be where they are right now while losing Masahiro Tanaka for a month, losing Jacoby Ellsbury for several weeks, and getting basically nothing from the middle infield, I’d have been happy. The records after 54 games in 2013 and 2014 are a harsh little reminder that there is still a lot of season left though.

Anywho, here is your open thread for the evening. The Yankees are traveling back from the West Coast and have an off-day today. Apparently a few players on the team attended a charity event hosted by Robinson Cano last night, so that’s neat. The Mets are playing later tonight, MLB Network is showing a regional game, and Game One of the NBA Finals is on as well (9pm ET on ABC). Didn’t the Conference Finals end like a week ago? Geez. Talk about those games or anything else right here.

Wednesday Night Open Thread

Things got a little hairy this afternoon, but the Yankees held on to beat the Mariners and sweep the three-game series in Seattle. It was basically the perfect series too. Beat up on Felix Hernandez in the first game, ninth inning comeback in the second game, and a dominant return by Masahiro Tanaka in the third game. Tanaka looked as good as he’s looked at any point this season or last in his first start off the DL. I’m not sure what more we could have wanted to see from him. Tanaka was stellar. Glad he’s back.

Here is tonight’s open thread. This afternoon’s game will be replayed on YES at 7:30pm ET if you want to see Tanaka again. The Mets are playing later tonight and Game One of the Stanley Cup Finals will be on as well (8pm ET on NBCSN). Talk about those games or anything else here.

Tuesday Night Open Thread

The Yankees are still out on the West Coast, but good news is tonight’s game will be the final 10pm ET start of the road trip. Thank goodness. Use this as your open thread until the regular game thread comes along a little closer to first pitch. MLB Network is showing a regional game tonight and that’s pretty much it for nationally televised sports. The NHL and NBA playoffs don’t resume until later this week. Talk about whatever here.

Monday Night Open Thread

The Yankees are still out on the West Coast, which means we have another 10pm ET start tonight. Until then, use this as your open thread to talk about whatever. ESPN is showing the Brewers and Cardinals at 8pm ET and that’s about it as far as nationally televised sports go. The regular game thread will be along closer to game time.

Sunday Night Open Thread

The Yankees lost to the Athletics for the third time in four games earlier this afternoon, and they’ve won just five times in this last 18 games. And yet somehow they are still tied for first place in the AL East. Baseball has become just one giant blob of thoroughly mediocre teams. What a bore.

Anyway, here is tonight’s open thread. The ESPN Sunday Night Game is the Tigers and Angels (Price vs. Shoemaker), and that’s about it for spots. Talk about that game or anything else right here.

Saturday Night Open Thread

The Yankees and Athletics don’t play the third game of their four-game series until later tonight, so here’s an open thread until the regular game thread comes along closer to first pitch. FOX is showing a bunch of regional games tonight and there’s also an NHL Game Seven on as well (Blackhawks vs. Ducks at 8pm ET on NBCSN), so talk about those games or anything else here.
