Here’s your open/game thread for Monday

Open Thread

The Yankees’ spring losing streak extends to two games; the Grapefruit League crown is in real jeopardy, folks. Jokes aside, the Bombers host the Pirates at George M. Steinbrenner Field tonight. The good news? Gerrit Cole will pitch the first inning! The bad news? There’s no television broadcast. You will have to listen to this one at the radio. First pitch is scheduled for 6:35 PM.

We’ll convert this to a game thread around 6 PM. In the meantime, feel free to use this as your open thread for the day.

Game Thread

Gerrit Cole takes the mound for the first time in a Yankee uniform tonight, and he’s supported by this starting lineup:

Cole is expected to go for just one inning, and then Jordan Montgomery will take over for a couple of innings.

Fun Questions

  1. How irritated are you that Cole’s first outing isn’t televised?
  2. What’s the last song you listened to?
