Sunday Open Thread

Here’s the open thread for the rest of the weekend. The Mets and Dodgers are the ESPN Sunday Night game (Colon vs. Kershaw), and that’s pretty much it tonight. Talk about that game, this afternoon’s win, or anything else right here.

DotF: Holder extends hitting streak in Charleston’s win

C Kyle Higashioka has been bumped up to replace C Gary Sanchez (thumb) on the Triple-A Scranton roster, per Shane Hennigan. C Sebastian Valle was up yesterday in a temporary move. Sanchez has a fracture in his thumb and will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

Triple-A Scranton (5-0 loss to Louisville)

  • CF Ben Gamel & RF Aaron Judge: both 1-4 — Gamel threw a runner out at third
  • 1B Nick Swisher & LF Jake Cave: 0-4, 2 K
  • LHP Tyler Olson: 4.2 IP, 10 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 1 WP, 5/2 GB/FB — 58 of 74 pitches were strikes (78%)
  • RHP Mark Montgomery: 2.1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 2/2 GB/FB — 14 of 23 pitches were strikes (61%)
  • LHP James Pazos: 1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 1/0 GB/FB — 14 of 24 pitches were strikes (58%) … 20/14 K/BB in 17.1 innings is not what you want

Thursday Night Open Thread

Got some info about a pretty cool event to pass along: Jack Curry is hosting a luncheon and a Q&A with Don Larsen at NYY Steak on June 9th. That’s the West 51st Street location, not the Yankee Stadium location. All of the information is right here. A ticket gets you a three-course lunch, a baseball autographed by Larsen, and photos. From what I understand there are still some discounted tickets remaining, so act fast.

Anyway, here is tonight’s open thread. MLB Network is showing a regional game tonight, plus there’s NBA and NHL playoff games as well. Talk about any of that stuff and more right here.

Monday Night Open Thread

I know the Yankees have won five straight and 12 of their last 17 games, but today is a much-needed off-day, I’d say. The Yankees just wrapped up a 20 games in 20 days stretch, and they start another one tomorrow because the makeup game of the rainout in Detroit wiped out an off-day. Enjoy the time away from the Yankees while it lasts.

Here is tonight’s open thread. The Mets are playing tonight and there are both NHL and NBA playoff games on as well. Talk about any of those games right here.

Sunday Night Open Thread

Here is the open thread for the rest of the weekend. The Cubs and Giants are the ESPN Sunday Night Baseball game (Hendricks vs. Bumgarner) plus there are NBA and NHL playoff games on as well. Talk about any of that stuff or whatever else is on your mind right here. Except politics and religion. Get that outta here.

Saturday Night Open Thread

Here is your open thread for this fine evening. Things are always a little better when the Yankees are winning, aren’t they? FOX and MLB Network are showing a bunch of regional games tonight, plus there’s both NHL and NBA playoff games on. Have at it.
