I was hoping to dig up a Francisco Cervelli highlight video for the open thread tonight, but apparently no such thing exists. Instead, here’s video of what I consider his most memorable moment as a Yankee, the solo homer in Atlanta back in 2009. The Yankees were struggling to score in a big way at the time — they scored 13 runs total in their previous seven games — and Brian Cashman flew down to meet the team and reportedly tore them a new one. Cervelli hit the homer, the Yankees went on to win that game and the next six games as well. Following the Cervelli homer game, the Yankees went 64-27 (.703) the rest of the season and won the World Series. Good times.
Anyway, here is tonight’s open thread. The Thursday NFL game is the Bills and Dolphins, plus the (hockey) Rangers and Nets are also in action. Talk about those games, Cervelli’s homer, or whatever else is on your mind right here.
