Weekend open thread

Welcome to your open thread which will be up until the game thread is posted at 6:30 which leads me to this…

I know, I already complained about it in the morning news and notes post but I’m going to do it again. What’s with the 7:15 p.m. starts on Saturdays? I don’t like them. Weekend baseball should be played earlier in the day.

Oh, and the Yankees made a move:

Feel free to discuss this move, last night’s game, the beautiful weather, etc.

Saturday morning news and notes: 6/13/15

Good morning.

The Yankees lost, the game was awful to watch and now we have to wait until 7:15 for tonight’s game. Ugh.

Here are a couple of new items for you:

  • Esmil Rogers was cut from the team after last night’s game which means he can choose to go to Triple A or asked to be released so he can explore free agency. It’s about time. The Yankees will name his replacement before tonight’s game.
  • Jacoby Ellsbury (remember him?) is alive and may be returning to the team before the All-Star break.

Mason Williams got his first major league home run which cut the deficit to 5-3 and it was probably the only good thing about last night’s game.

I had turned off the game before Chase Headley’s unfortunate incident happened in the third inning. In case you missed it, he was hit in a place that, well, I’m not familiar with having, but plenty of you are!… Click here to read the rest

Thursday night open thread: 6/11/15

Happy Thursday night.

This is the last off day for the Yankees for the next three weeks. They are about to enter a stretch of 20 straight games and with the injury to Andrew Miller, those 20 games will be interesting to say the least.

In case you missed it, today was a big day for content on IIATMS.

EJ started things off with a post wondering if the Yankees are the best team in the American League. If they start to slump, you can blame him.

Then Brad kicked into high gear with a recap of Days 2 and 3 of the MLB Draft, he posted about the David Carpenter trade and he wrote about Joe Girardi’s bullpen usage.

Next, EJ wrote about Mason Williams’ promotion and how he should be platooned with Chris Young while he’s up here.

Then Susan wrote about the challenges Girardi will be facing without Miller in the bullpen.

And finally Scott wrote about short players and how many of them make it big in the Majors.… Click here to read the rest
