Happy Wednesday everyone. We have more postseason baseball on the docket for Wednesday with the Athletics hosting the Rays in the American League Wild Card Game. Tuesday’s National League game was thrilling, so it’s going to take a lot for the AL game to live up to it, but these two teams are good enough to make it happen. That one is at 8:00 PM ET on ESPN. Like yesterday, this will be your thread for the game. There will not be a separate thread. Meanwhile, the NHL season also kicks off tonight with the big game being the defending champion Blues taking on the Capitals in St. Louis. That is also on at 8:00 PM ET and is on NBC Sports Network. Use this space to discuss whatever you’d like. As always, just be nice to each other.
Thing I Like Today
Today I like a good thing happening to a good person. Baseball Prospectus shuffled around some of their leadership positions with Craig Goldstein taking over as Editor-in-Chief. Congratulations to Craig, and I would of course highly recommend subscribing to BP to anyone who reads this site. I am biased as I used to work there, but I don’t anymore so it’s not like I’m obligated to say it!
