Monday Night Open Thread

Posted by: | Comments (59)

For the third time in the last seven days, the Yankees are off today. Enjoy it, they only have two more scheduled off-days the rest of the season (Sept. 1st and 8th, both Mondays). With yesterday’s win over the Rays, the Yankees are 8-5 in games immediately prior to a scheduled off-day this year. That doesn’t mean anything, but I always enjoy the off-day a little bit more following a win.

Here is your open thread for the night. The baseball schedule is very light, but MLB Network will air a regional game plus the Little League World Series is on. There’s also a preseason NFL game on as well (Browns vs. Redskins). Talk about those games or anything else here.

Thursday Night Open Thread

Posted by: | Comments (186)

The Yankees are off tonight, meaning they won’t blow another lead to the Orioles. Small victories, I guess. Use this thread to talk about whatever you like. The Mets are playing, MLB Network is airing a regional game, the Little League World Series is on, and there’s a preseason NFL game on as well. Lots to watch while the Yankees are off. Talk about anything and everything right here.

Tuesday Night Open Thread

The Yankees were rained out tonight, and earlier this afternoon they announced Michael Pineda will start tomorrow night’s game as scheduled. Shane Greene is being pushed back to Saturday, with Brandon McCarthy going Friday and Chris Capuano going Sunday. The Yankees are taking advantage of the rainout and Thursday’s off-day by giving Hiroki Kuroda a nice seven-day rest. He needs it.

Here is your open thread for the Yankees baseball-less lineup. The Mets are playing, MLB Network will air a regional game, plus the Little League World Series is on. Talk about any of those games or anything else right here.

Thursday Night Open Thread

I haven’t had a chance to read it yet, but I’m going to pass this along anyway: David Laurila at FanGraphs spoke to Derek Jeter recently about his approach to hitting. How it’s changed over the years, how he prepares, stuff like that. Laurila’s interviews are always top notch and I have no reason to suspect this one is any different, so head over and check it out.

Here is tonight’s open thread. MLB Network will carry a regional game plus there is preseason football on (Jets-Colts at 8pm ET on CBS, among others). Talk about those games, the Jeter interview, this afternoon’s win, or anything else right here.

Thirty-five years ago today, Yankees captain Thurman Munson was killed when a small plane he was piloting crashed during take-off and landing exercises near his home in Ohio during a team off-day. That was a few years before I was born so I can’t even pretend to know what that whole experience was like as a fan. I do understand what Munson meant to the franchise and who he was as a player though. I can’t imagine what that day was like 35 years ago.

Here is your open thread for the night. The Mets are playing and MLB Network is airing a game as well. Who you see depends on where you live. Talk about those games, this afternoon’s win, or anything else right here.

Well that was a hell of a day, wasn’t it? The Yankees did more or less exactly what I expected them to — make relatively small upgrades without giving up anything of consequence. I don’t know if these moves will be enough to push the team into the postseason, but I’m not sure any series of moves could have done thatanyway. They’re going for it without sacrificing top prospects, which makes me happy. No complaints from me about this trade deadline, though I’m sure that puts me in the minority.

Anyway, here is your open thread for the night. The Yankees are off, thankfully. A game tonight would have been too much from my selfish “I have to blog this stuff” perspective. MLB Network is airing a game tonight, and who you see depends on where you live. Talk about that, the trade deadline zaniness, or anything else right here.
