PSA Comments of the Day 5/21/15: A much needed day off

New, comments

After a two-game set against the Washington Nationals, the Yankees get a much needed day off before they play 16 games in 17 days.

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

The Yankees lost last night. They also lost the night before that. They have also lost seven of their last eight. It's not good, but I also wouldn't say they are in #DOOMED territory just yet. Slumps happen, and about four of those losses were incredibly close, essentially coin flip type affairs. That works out over a full season.

The team will now start a six game home trip, and they'll take on both the Rangers and Royals. The Rangers are pretty bad and the Royals are pretty good, so naturally the Yankees will get swept by the Rangers and they'll sweep the Royals (I'm half joking).

Anyway, let's enjoy the off day. Greg is also enjoying his COTD off day too, as he went to see the Yankees lose at Nationals Park. Let's get to it.

Not a start, but we'll take the pinch running situation!

Some more excellent "Go Notes" from Go Win.

Seriously, we are all rooting for Slade to succeed.

This Twitter user was certainly channeling LTL's pun abilities right there.

Pretty much, yeah.

Bill Murray is a NBA Hall of Famer. All he needed was Michael's Secret Stuff.

This is how I feel, on so many levels.

Honorable Mod Mention

The HMM goes to Matt F., who filled the game thread with snarky comments and puns. We needed it, to say the least.

Fun Questions

  • If you could see any band/musician live (dead or alive), who would it be and why?
  • What is the most interesting piece of baseball memorabilia that you own?

Song of the Day

This Charming Man - The Smiths

I don't know about you, but I think that The Smiths is apropos on any day.

There's no Yankees game tonight, so this is your open thread for the day. Fill it up with banter, GIF's, and a pinch of optimism!
