    also rumors that cano, granderson, and a-rod are going to get his with 50 game ped suspensions, brought to you by the guy who broke the melky suspension last year. let's hope he's not right this time.

    on another note, word is mo is going to announce he's retiring after this year.

    Shoulda used the ToxicBritney off-season wrist and forearm conditioning program. I do, and I haven't been on IR for years.

    (0-1) A sad debut for the 2013 team. First Opening Day loss since 1982. Hope this is not the shape of things to come.

    Eh. The Yankees may be doomed, but opening day don't mean jack. I mean, the Yankees did suck all through the 80s with all those opening day wins, and the Mets have the best opening day win percentage of any team....

    (0-2) Homers from Hafner & Wells, with a 3-run jack, were too little and too late. Fortunately, Kuroda escapes with only a contusion.
    Good effort from Adam Warren with 5.1 innings pitched and only giving up one earned run.
    Time to regroup and see if we can win the last game of the rubber set.

    Pettitte vs. Dempster tonight.

    (1-2) A pair of solo homers from the unlikely pair of Gardner & Cervelli; not to mention the stellar start from Pettitte with 8 innings. Mariano gets his first save of the 2013 season. Whew!

    On to Detroit for the next set.

    (3-4) A couple of losses and a couple of wins, but still below .500. I thought Prince and the Revolution was going to sweep their series in Detroit, but something ignited the Yankee bats. Maybe we could depart Cleveland with a split and be ready to face the Orioles in New York.

    (4-4) One hell of an offensive display yesterday and another win by Pettitte. Mother Nature rained on our parade tonight.

    (4-4) Another rain out...............could go for three in a row in the Bronx if Mother Nature doesn't cooperate.

    (5-4) Sabathia goes 8 frames, 9 k's, gets called for a balk, and receives a triple play(4-6-5-6-5-3-4) to get out of the eighth inning.

    (6-5) Two of three at home is a good start especially against the Orioles. Kuroda throws a complete game resulting in a shutout. Off tonight and and a series with the Diamondbacks at home begins tomorrow.

    Say what? The orioles had a nice season last year, but there is no 'especially against the orioles', at least not yet - the Yankees should expect to win 2 of 3 from them pretty much every time.

    Head to head, the Bombers were 8-7 against the Orioles last year in the regular season. The birds are better team this year and the Yankees are decimated with injuries to four starters so far.

    Like I said, the Os had a nice year last year. That doesn't put them in the 'especially against' category - let's see if they can put together TWO decent years before we promote them. :-) the Yankees were 13-5 against the Orioles he two prior years BTW.

    As for better than last year, they seem to be largely the same team as that which ended the year, with that big run to get them to that big +7 run differential (after being negative most of the year)... A lot of people think last year was a fluke for them - I'm willing to be convinces otherwise, but I'm skeptical.

    (8-6) Two close games with the Diamondbacks, but we could not turn the Hat Trick despite Cervelli and his solo shot in the bottom of the ninth to tie it up. Hughes improved with 7 frames and kept it close. We had a shot until the 12th inning when Phelps gave up 4 runs. Jeter out until the All-Star break.

    Not a great 1st, but 1 hit and 1 sacrifice is hardly something to get worked up about someone getting whacked...
