I know it’s Friday and I’m supposed to post a whole bunch of links in the open thread, but I’m out of town for a few days and didn’t have time to read anything worthwhile, let along put it all together in a post. Sorry. The links will be back soon enough. I promise.
Friday: Anyway, here is your open thread for the night. The Royals and Orioles open the ALCS later tonight (8pm ET on TBS) plus the Islanders are playing their first game of the season. Talk about either of those games or anything else right here.
Saturday: Once again, this is your open thread. The Orioles and Royals are playing Game Two of the ALCS right now (on TBS), and later tonight the Cardinals and Giants will play Game One of the NLCS (8pm ET on FOX). The Knicks are playing a preseason game, the three local hockey teams are playing regular season games, and there’s college football going on somewhere. Talk about any of those games or whatever else is on your mind right here.
Sunday: One last time, here is your open thread for the rest of the weekend. The Giants and Cardinals are playing Game Two of the NLCS (8pm ET on FOX Sports 1) and the late NFL game is the Giants at the Eagles. The (hockey) Rangers are playing as well. You this thread to talk about those games or anything else.
This is your open thread for the evening. There is no baseball again tonight — ALCS starts tomorrow, NLCS starts Saturday — but both the (hockey) Rangers and Devils are opening their season. The Colts and Texans are the Thursday night football game. Talk about any of that stuff and more right here. Have at it.
Got some bad news to pass along: Bill Madden and Filip Bondy report the Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center on the campus of Montclair State was broken into last night and several pieces of memorabilia from Yogi’s career were stolen. The thieves were described as a “team of professionals” who targeted very specific pieces. The investigation is ongoing. Hopefully they catch these guys and Yogi’s stuff is returned. People are the worst.
Here is your open thread for the night. There’s no baseball tonight — the ALCS and NLCS begin Friday and Saturday, respectively — but hockey seasons starts, so that’s cool. NBC Sports Network is showing a few games though none of the Rangers, Islanders, or Devils are playing. The Knicks are also playing a preseason game. Talk about any of that stuff and more right here.
Here is your open thread for the night. The Dodgers and Cardinals are playing Game Three of the NLDS right now (on FOX Sports 1) while later tonight the Giants and Nationals will play Game Three of their NLDS (9pm ET on FOX Sports 1). The Cardinals and Giants are both up two games to one in the series. Feel free to talk about those games or anything else right here.
(Thanks to reader Stephen Kennedy for sending in the video.)
Here is your open thread for this lovely Monday night. Lovely in New York, anyway. The Giants and Nationals are playing Game Three of their NLDS right now (on MLB Network) and later tonight the Dodgers and Cardinals will play Game Three of their NLDS (9pm ET on FOX Sports 1). The Giants are looking to sweep while the other series is tied at one. Seahawks-Redskins is the Monday Night Football Game. You know how these open threads work by now, so talk about whatever you like right here. Have at it.
Here is your open thread for the night, folks. The Tigers and Orioles are playing Game One of their ALDS right now (on TBS) and later tonight the Royals and Angels will play Game One of their ALDS (9:30pm ET on TBS, Weaver vs. Vargas). Somehow we’ve reached the point where the Tigers are the AL postseason team I dislike the most. I guess I’m going soft. Anyway, there’s also the Thursday football game as well (Packers vs. Vikings). Talk about any of those games or whatever else is on your minds right here.
As I’m sure you’ve heard, Derek Jeter launched a new website today called The Players’ Tribune. It’s basically a place for athletes to write their own stories in their own words branded as an “innovative multimedia digital company where world-class athletes will share their unfiltered, honest and unique perspectives, bringing fans closer to the games they love.” I’m not sure how many players will write at midseason, but I guess we’ll find out. Chad Jennings has the press release, if you’re interested.
Here is your open thread for the night. The Pirates and Giants (Volquez vs. Bumgarner) are playing the NL Wildcard Game (8pm ET on ESPN) and we can only hope it will be as good as the AL game last night. That was something else. You folks know how these open threads work by now, so have at it.
Here’s your open thread for the rest of the night. The Royals and Athletics (Shields vs. Lester) are playing the AL Wildcard game tonight (8pm ET on TBS). My prediction: someone will say Lester and/or Shields are either earning or costing themselves millions in free agency with this start. Talk about that game or anything else right here. Have at it.
So here it is, the first official open thread of the offseason. We’ve got another six months of these to go before the Yankees play another meaningful baseball game, though at least the postseason and hot stove will keep us plenty busy for most of the winter. The first night of the offseason is always the worst though. No Yankees baseball and the next game is just so far away. For shame.
Here is your open thread for the evening. There is no baseball tonight. The postseason starts with the AL Wildcard Game tomorrow (Athletics at Royals). The Patriots and Chiefs are playing on Monday Night Football though. Talk about that game, this afternoon’s press conference, or whatever else is on your mind right here.
