I have no idea if there is a game today but wanted to start up a thread anyway as yesterday's had begun to tread into the political realm and I wanted no part of that. COVID is a relevant topic here as it relates to whether the game is played...let's please focus on science and factual breaking news re the game implications and not politics in regards to that topic tho...

Anyway....Perez tonight? Assuming that if no one else tests positive they will try to go. If we see another set of positives, especially on the Sox, then another cancellation wouldn't surprise me.

No report yet of a DH today so gotta assume if there is one it would be tomorrow.

Normally I’m a “continue original thread when there’s a cancellation” guy but I’ll do my part to bump this until someone hopefully puts a bullet in the other thread or moves it to V&N.

If the mods want the original thread to continue feel free to delete this one. I was not a fan of the direction that thread was going in. I have my own opinions about who is right and who is wrong when it comes to getting vaxxed but I in these game threads I try to put that on the back burner. There are literally dozens of threads for that on this site.

MLB.com has Perez throwing although I do wonder if they will just bump ERod to today

Coming out of the AS break rotations can sometimes be screwy but if they’re going to play today I’d prefer to just see everyone moved out one day.

It's a game thread and you don't mess with mojo.

Because it's a game thread it's a bit faster and looser than man board threads.

What's not in question at all is that getting vaxxed is the right thing to do. Vaccinations are not validly framed a political/opinion thing.

So this thread ought to be axed.

Ax the thread, I dont care. I know that if we are on a win streak the previous person starts the thread again. I didn't think there was mojo to mess with after a loss. The other thread was for a game that never happened yesterday and was getting sort of V&N for my tastes.

Mods feel free to delete this thread, I'll just avoid the other.

What mojo? They haven’t won in a week, and yesterday’s game was ppd. Perfectly valid to start a new one today, IMO. Particularly one that doesn’t cover the same discussions that can be read in any number of V & N threads. I say keep this one. Leave the other one open for whoever still wants to follow it.

Starting a new thread is fine since the last game is on terminal hold and there's no winning streak involved.
If this one gets too V&N please use the Report function.

Apropos of anything else to debate, I feel like once someone lays claim to a game with a game thread, it is theirs until a game is played. If last night was rained out, we wouldn't start a new thread by a new poster -- at least I don't recall that being protocol.

Note that this is not to argue with the dopes, but, as I said, a stupid discussion of the game thread rules on a day when not much else is going on yet. :)

Anyone have any idea if/when we are expecting results from the Red Sox tests (and/or additional NYY tests)? My uninformed gut says if those are all negative it exponentially increases our chance at a game tonight

I initially read "uninformed gut" as "uniformed gut" and the image was of interior organs wearing the ASG unis, which seemed apt.
I hope that there is a game tonight, but last night I found ways to be entertained. There are a lot of chamber music concerts on the internet.
Potentially: Geaux, Sox!

You do not want to see my gut in an ASG uniform, especially those white ones...

Does anyone know if Judge was vaccinated? Because if not, and Mrs. Aaron gets it from him...good Lord. I still wear a mask out in public, and if I were escorting an elderly woman, I would have been as sure as hell to have been masked to protect her.

“Uniformed Gut” should have prompted the mention of one name above all others by now, and that’s Don Zimmer.

A wrong has been made right, an incomplete complete.

As you were.

Eh, probably a negligible result for the Yanks. They originally had day off, single game on 8/16-17, now it's 7:05pm Angels makeup, doubleheader.

Meanwhile the Sox have offdays on 8/16 and 8/19, so they'll be well-equipped to handle this DH.

EDIT: Albeit, the 8/17-18 stretch is a short 2-game "road trip". Weird.

And clearly some Sox players were happy to get the usual All Star break, can't discount that.

The mojo is generated in starting the game thread.

As our nominal game-thread starter UK Sox Fan has presided over the temporary banishment of Aaron Judge, Gio Urshela, Kyle Higashioka, Jonathan Loaisiga, Nestor Cortes Jr. and Wandy Peralta.

And you want to mess with that?

Reckless.

Fucking reckless, my man.

Do I get credit for Voit at least?
