Rainy Day Open Thread: All the sports besides Tigers baseball

The Tigers’ doubleheader against the Yankees has been postponed. But there are still more sports than your eyeballs can handle today.

After Saturday’s rainout, the Tigers and Yankees were scheduled to play a double-header today. However, the weather has proven to be even worse than yesterday, and both games have already been postponed.

Instead, let’s talk about the other sports happening today. Plenty of good baseball will actually be played around the league, including Justin Verlander on national television (Sunday Night Baseball on ESPN at 8 p.m.) Other games of interest may be:

  • Chris Sale vs. the Orioles at 1 p.m.
  • Noah Syndergaard vs. the Brewers at 1 p.m.
  • Rookie phenom Shohei Ohtani pitching (important note) against the Royals at 2:15 p.m.
  • Clayton Kershaw vs. the Diamondbacks at 4 p.m.

Other sports on today:

  • The NBA playoffs started on Saturday, and have another quadruple header lined up today. The first game is between the Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks at 1:00 p.m.
  • There are also four NHL playoff games scheduled, starting with the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers at 3:00 p.m.
  • Soccer fans can get their fix with a pair of MLS games, the first starting at 4:00 p.m.
  • If you want something even more obscure, ESPN just launched a new streaming service this week. ESPN+, also known as “real life ESPN 8: The Ocho” is offering a free one-month trial when you sign up.

Up Next

Monday is a scheduled off day, so it will be a three-day break for the Tigers. Who put an All-Star break in the middle of April? Anyway, the Baltimore Orioles come to town on Tuesday, followed by a four-games-in-three-days series against the Kansas City Royals next weekend.
