Saturday Night Open Thread

Posted by: | Comments (305)

Here is your open thread for the night. MLB.tv is free all weekend, so you can watch any game your heart desires. Tigers-Twins, Royals-White Sox, Athletics-Rangers, Cardinals-Diamondbacks, and Mariners-Angels all have postseason implications. I’m sure there’s a bunch of college football on somewhere as well. Talk about those games, this afternoon’s loss, Joe Girardi ripping the team, or anything else right here.

Wednesday Night Open Thread

Posted by: | Comments (251)

The Yankees were finally eliminated from postseason contention this afternoon. We’ve known this was coming for weeks but now it’s official. No October baseball in the Bronx for the second consecutive year. This sucks. Joe Girardi confirmed after the game that Carlos Beltran (elbow) will be shut down for the rest of the season and likely Jacoby Ellsbury (hamstring) as well. Maybe Mark Teixeira (wrist) too. Not surprise there. Might as well shut down Dellin Betances before he gets to 90 innings.

Anyway, here is your open thread for the night. The Mets are playing and ESPN is showing the Royals and Indians, a game that would have been relevant to us Yankees fans if not for this afternoon’s loss. Talk about those games or anything else right here.

Sunday Night Open Thread

Posted by: | Comments (153)

Six years ago today, the final game at the old Yankee Stadium was played. The Yankees won that game 7-3 over the Orioles. Here’s the box score. Jason Giambi had the last hit and Jose Molina had the last homer at the old ballpark. Andy Pettitte started and Mariano Rivera recorded the final three outs. Derek Jeter gave a memorable speech (video above) and the team made a trip around the warning track after the game. I remember watching it and feeling like they had just won the World Series. It was that kind of ceremony. Never gonna forget that night.

Here is your open thread for the last few hours of the weekend. The ESPN Sunday Night Game kinda stinks, it’s the Reds at the Cardinals (Simon vs. Lynn). The late NFL game is the Steelers and Panthers. Talk about those games, the final game at Yankee Stadium, this afternoon’s win, or anything else right here.

Here is your open thread for this gorgeous Saturday night. Pretty great weather in New York these last few days. The Mets are playing tonight, MLB Network will air a regional game later on, and there’s a ton of college football on as well. Talk about those games or anything else right here.

Monday Night Open Thread

Posted by: | Comments (193)

Today is the final scheduled off-day of the season for the Yankees. They’ll close out the 2014 regular season with 21 games in 20 days — they have a doubleheader against the Orioles this Friday — before heading into what will surely be one of the most interesting offseasons in recent franchise history. (I think I said that last year too.) Unless they make a miraculous comeback these next three weeks, picking up the pieces following back-to-back postseason-less years will be a daunting task.

Here is your open thread for the off-night. The Mets are playing, MLB Network is airing a regional game, and the Monday Night Football game is the Giants at the Lions. Good night for the Yankees to be off, I’d say. Talk about any of those games or anything else right here.

Sunday Night Open Thread

For whatever reason the folks at MLBAM decided to chop this afternoon’s Derek Jeter retirement ceremony into eight (!) different videos, and I’m not embedding all of them here. That’s too many. Jeter’s predictably perfect speech is above (full text) and you can see all the ceremony videos right here. (Andy Pettitte was not in town because of a prior family engagement.) The Yankees pulled out all the stops, even bringing in astronauts and Michael Jordan. Astronauts! I didn’t hear it myself, but apparently one of the broadcast microphones picked up Jordan saying “I heard you’re getting married?” to Jeter, so that’s a thing. Leave it to Jeter to keep an engagement secret. Anyway, the ceremony was way cool. What a great afternoon.

Here is your open thread for the rest of the night. The ESPN Sunday Night Game is a good one, the Giants at the Tigers (Hudson vs. Lobstein). The late NFL game is the Colts and Broncos. Hooray football. Talk about those games, the Jeter ceremony, this afternoon’s loss, or anything else right here.

Labor Day Open Thread

Posted by: | Comments (304)

For the first time since 2005, the Yankees have an off-day on Labor Day. That is kinda weird. Not bad though. It’ll be nice to spend the holiday doing something else besides focusing on baseball. We’ll post any breaking news or whatnot, plus we will have the final DotF of the season later tonight, but otherwise use this thread to talk about whatever throughout the rest of the day. Enjoy the holiday, folks.

Here’s your open thread for the rest of the night. The ESPN Sunday Night Game is the Indians at the Royals (T.J. House vs. Danny Duffy), which, uh, I guess is a good matchup to hide on a holiday weekend. I know Kansas City is contending, but geez. Anyway, talk about that game, this afternoon’s loss, or anything else right here.
