An open thread for the day before the Yankees begin their last stand in the ALDS.

It doesn’t feel like it’s sunk in quite yet, but the Yankees’ season is on the brink of elimination tonight. The Rays struck back after falling behind 1-0 and now have a 2-1 series lead in the ALDS, and the Yankees need to bridge a game before they can get the ball back to their ace in Gerrit Cole. The last stand starts tonight, and hopefully it can continue for at least another night.

On the site, we’ll have the info for you to catch the game live, a look into what relievers will be on hand for both sides heading into Game Four, and a breakdown of why Jonathan Loáisiga should not be trusted with high leverage situations for the remainder of this run.

Fun Questions:

1. How long should the leash for Jordan Montgomery be tonight?

2. Will we see Deivi García out of the ‘pen?
