OTM Open Thread 7/4: It is Thursday

Happy Fourth of July everyone. The Red Sox will celebrate the nation’s birthday up in Canada tonight, playing a night game while most of the league plays in the afternoon. As someone who works today, I appreciate that. The Red Sox are going to start Hector Velázquez in this game, and it’s still not clear whether or not Marcus Stroman will be able to go for the Blue Jays. First pitch is at 7:07 as the Red Sox search for a series victory. Today also marks the annual hot dog eating contest, which has never been my thing but people seem to like it for some reason. Wimbledon also continues today, and there is baseball on all day if that’s your thing. Enjoy the holiday.
