OTM Open Thread 8/3: It is Monday

Photo by Mike Stobe/ Happy Monday everyone. The Red Sox are coming off a brutal weekend in the Bronx having gotten swept after blowing multiple leads in Sunday’s game. They’ll have a day off today to get over that before taking on the Rays for two this week. Elsewhere, there is a back-to-back on ESPN for the NBA starting with Grizzlies-Pelicans at 6:30 PM ET and then that will be followed by Lakers-Jazz. In the NHL, there are six games today between 12:00 PM ET and 10:30 PM ET, with four on NBCSN. Use this space to discuss whatever you’d like. As always, just be nice to each other.

Red Sox 7, Yankees 9: Swept in the Bronx

Photo by Mike Stobe/ Matt Barnes wastes a big night for Xander Bogaerts This was a very frustrating weekend against the Yankees, with the finale of the sweep perhaps being the most frustrating of the bunch. The Red Sox finally got some production from their offense with Xander Bogaerts leading the way. He had a four-hit effort including a pair of homers.
