MLB Opening Day: Could This Be the Year of the »

I can hear the plaint now: “This game is boring.” Echoing from stadiums from the nation’s capital to Hollywood. While every game featured at least one homer, the usual fireworks were quiet today, signifying that 2011 might be the year of the pitcher, part two. But one man’s boring is another man’s nail-biter, and a [...]

Yankees Start Things off Right, Looking Hot Despite »

Today did not feel like Opening Day in baseball should feel.It was absolutely freezing at the stadium, windy and at times we were hit with freezing rain/hail.

New York Yankees: Some Prospects That GM Cashman »

First of all, let me state that I have nothing against GM Brian Cashman or the New York Yankees organization. I know Cashman does his best to keep a playoff-contending team year in and out. What this is for is to just lay out the possibilities that "could have been," as the Yankees' goal towards 28th championship has officially started [...]

CC Sabathia would be starting his [...]

New York Yankees’ Bullpen Proves Better Than »

After missing out on signing free-agent Cliff Lee and the retirement of veteran left-hander Andy Pettitte, the Yankees focused on improving their pitching in the later innings. So far, so good. After aces CC Sabathia and Justin Verlander battled to a 3-3 tie through six innings, the bullpens entered for both sides. Joba Chamberlain, recent [...]

New York Yankees: A CDTF Opening Day Tailgate at the »

It’s Opening Day! And CDTF will be at Yankee Stadium to see it all go down. I just picked up my press pass (printed my tickets from StubHub) and texted Derek to say that "I'm here!"
