This gameday open thread will have two parts and it is all user-generated…

  • Up until first pitch, use the comments section to predict who you think will be the Sunburst Player of the Game. (be sure to use a valid email address while leaving the comment). The commenter that correctly predicts who we will name the Sunburst Player of the Game the most times prior to the all-star game, will win two tickets to a second-half game. [Click here for rules]
  • Once the game starts the GBT open thread will be your thoughts during the game of what you think are The Good, The Bad and/or The Telling moments of the game.

    The better half of Niemann-Marcus.
    If the giraffe isn't a bright spot - i'm afraid another loss is eminent

    Aki for me

  4. Martin B says:

    Aki for me today....still looking for my first win

  5. Brett says:

    Sunburst POG:Pat Burrell he's due hopefully soon.

  6. I will probably make this a weekend post in coming weeks, but for now i will just put it here.

    Our early leader through 4 games is Dave (email: dmea**** with 2 correct.

    In second place is about 10 different people with 1.

  7. Cougar Bait says:

    Player of the Game: Jeff Niemann for Baltimore

  8. WiNKy says:

    Longoria just looks bat shit crazy good. Tell you what, I'll take Longo for the sunburst player of every game from here on out, & i'll Usain Bolt those golden tickets.

  9. Scot (who is glad to see the Rays & A's) says:

    Just like I doubt Bartlett isnt going to keep his 892 OPS, I doubt Burrell will maintain a 301 OPS. However I'm not so sure about Joyce. 625 OPS may end up being his number for a while.
