Off-Day Open Thread 4/30/14: Moving on from yesterday

Yesterday was awful. Robinson Cano was back in a non-Yankee uniform. The Yankees lost the game. The Yankees lost Pineda for four weeks. Did anyone actually win in the PSA DP? UPDATE: Rain has cancelled tonight's game.

Yesterday was awful. The game was dreary and depressing, the month long Michael Pineda injury sucked, and Yankee fans lived up to their usual rep. The old Greg Kirkland, disguised as wild mannered PSA ranter I'mGivingYouARaise, would have gone to the FanPost section to go on an epic, 1,000+ word, clever profanity laden rant about what happened last night. Alas, those days are behind me. The FanPosts I mean...not the clever profanity laden ranting.

Picture three sad Aardvarks sitting at a bus stop in the rain, waiting to go home. That would be the Aaron's last night after that game. They weren't even drunk. Or high. They were just morose. As for the Daily Predictions, no one won. There was a three way tie between LTL, Blanky, and YankeeCarp. Each of them scored 2,000 points each. Still plenty of winners to be had this week though.

Peanut Butter: Crunchy or Creamy? (THE WAR RAGES ON)

Alarms: What do you use to wake up? (Buzzer/Radio/Specific song/etc)

Where did you go on your last vacation?

What TV station do you sometimes tend to keep on for background noise?

In all honesty, the Pineda blow was way worse than the game or what happened at the game. Fans will be fans and CC Sabathia is still learning a whole new way to pitch. Having to do so on a cold, damp night isn't easy. Despite his few bad starts, his good starts have been some of his better April starts from recent memory. Feel free to prove me wrong on this though. Always feel free to prove me wrong.

Meanwhile, David Phelps will get the start tonight for the Yankees against the Mariners. And by tonight, I possibly mean tomorrow afternoon, as it is supposed to rain most of the day.

Just like Vidal Nuno, this is truly Phelps' time to shine. As Captain Falcon once said, "Show me your moves!" Show the Yankees your worth in the rotation for later this year or next year. Show other teams your worth by pitching well enough to warrant a trade. Let's go Yankees.

UPDATE: Tonight's game has indeed been cancelled due to rain. Use this as your Open Thread for the day.
