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.
