Sunday Open Thread

Well folks, the 2016 season is officially over. The Yankees finished in fourth place with an 84-78 record and a -22 run differential, and, of course, they missed the postseason. Mediocrity defined. At least this time the Yankees took steps to correct that by selling off impending free agents and valuable veterans for young players at the deadline. The future looks much brighter than it did six months ago.

Here is an open thread for the rest of the day. is free this weekend, so you can use that watch the last few innings of whatever games are still being played. There’s also the rest of the day’s NFL action. Talk about that stuff and more right here.

MLB Network is showing regional games at 7pm ET and 10 pm ET — also, is free this weekend, though local blackouts still apply — plus there’s a ton of college football on as well. Preseason hockey too! What? No one cares? Okay, nevermind. Anyway. Talk about whatever right here.

Sunday Open Thread

It’s awful that we need days like today to remind us baseball is just a dumb game. Complaining about bullpen management and runners left in scoring position seems so silly. Jose Fernandez, one of the game’s brightest stars, was killed in a boating accident earlier today. He was only 24 and due to become a father soon. Authorities said no alcohol or drugs were involved. It was just an accident. I’m glad we got a chance to experience Jose Fernandez and his passion for the game, though he was taken from this world far too soon. This sucks.

The Yankees have an off-day today, their final off-day of the regular season, and thank goodness for that. I need a night away from baseball after that disaster of the series in Boston. So, with no Yankees game tonight, I command you read Mark Teixeira’s Q&A with Ken Rosenthal and Andrew Marchand’s story on Gary Sanchez. Teixeira spoke about his career at length. Marchand wrote about Sanchez’s rise from immature minor leaguer to rookie sensation. Make sure you check ’em out.

Here is tonight’s open thread. The Mets are playing tonight and MLB Network is airing a regional game. There’s also Monday Night Football (Eagles vs. Bears) and the World Cup of Hockey. Talk about those games, the Teixeira and Sanchez stories, or anything else here. Have at it.

Sunday Open Thread

If you’re interested in such things, Randy Miller spoke to a bunch of Yankees about where they were the day of the September 11th attacks. Like a few of them, I was still in college at the time. I had a long exam that morning and didn’t hear about everything until later in the morning, around 10:30 or so. I didn’t watch it all unfold live on television like so many others. None of it seemed real.

Here’s the open thread for the rest of the day. The Cubs and Astros are the ESPN Sunday Night Baseball game (Arrieta vs. Fiers) plus there’s all the week one NFL action. Talk about all that or anything else on your mind right here.
