Off Day Open Thread 4/15/14: Interleague is upon us

The first interleague series of the year begins for the Yankees, as the Chicago Cubs come to the Bronx for two games. They get to face our two bright young starters, Tanaka and Pineda. With this game now postponed, feel free to use it as your open thread for the day.

I am not a fan of interleague play. Nevertheless, it's here to stay. The Cubs have come for just two days. Let's hope Tanaka gets some K's.

If my work schedule was not so crazy this week, I would probably have gone to tonight's game to watch Masahiro Tanaka start. Seeing him pitch live was awesome. However, it's going to be a rainy day here in NYC. Let's hope the Yankees can get this game in. If not, we're looking at a possible double header tomorrow.



Masahiro Tanaka and Michael Pineda pitching on the same day. And you may ask yourself, " did I get here?"

Feel free to use this as your Open Thread for the day. What are your plans for the evening now?
