Wednesday Open Thread: Daily Predictions, Name This Thread, and Have Fun

The Pinstripe Alley community questionnaire was a resounding success. We're big fans of success here at Pinstripe Alley. Let's see if we can keep it going.

Yesterday, all our troubles seemed so far away. Then our New York Yankees start to play... Oh, what the hell was yesterday?

Suddenly, CC's half the man he used to be. Twenty-Thirteen's hanging over me. Oh, yesterday came suddenly.

Why Tex had to throw? I don't know. Just make the play. They just played all wrong, bang the gong for yesterday.

Yesterday, that was not an easy game to play. Now you need a place to chat away. So this is born, from yesterday.

While the Yankee game last night was less than stellar, there was still fun to be had yesterday on Pinstripe Alley. Tanya's Community Questionnaire was a big hit with members both old and new. Some members talked about keeping an afternoon open thread going so that everyone could get to know each other a little better and just have a little fun. So we're going to experiment for a while and see how it does. If it does well, we'll keep it going. If it doesn't, Andrew Mearns will be banished to Fenway Park for cleaning duty. It's a win-win scenario.

In addition to this being an open thread, we're also adding in Daily Predictions. Answer the questions below for Pinstripe Alley daily open thread supremacy. The numbers will be tallied and the winners will be announced in the next day's open thread.

Daily Predictions

1. How many innings does the starter pitch?
2. Total number of Yankee strikeouts?
3. Total number of Yankee earned runs allowed?
4. Total number of hits given up?
5. Total number of Yankee hits?
6. Total number of Yankee runs?
7. Name one Yankee you think will hit a home run tonight.
8. Best overall Yankee of the night?

The Daily Predictions questions might change as we go on. Finally, just some fun questions:

Favorite Yankee Prospect?

Best Yankee game you ever attended?

What number would you choose to wear?

What would you like this daily open thread to be called?

Since this thread is all about the community, the last "fun" question is all about you. Feel free to name this thread for the future. If you see a name you like or think of one, let us know in the comments. As always, feel free to discuss whatever you want. We'll hopefully see you back tomorrow.
