    Tanaka on the Mound. Castro just knocked in 2. The Yankees lead the Astros 2-0 on Opening Day!

    The .667 (yes it's early) : ) Yanks with a nice come from behind 3-2 squeaker over the Bluejays. Moment of the game was Dellin Betances buckling Jose Bautista's knees in the bottom of the 8th and the tying run in scoring position with an absolutely filthy curveball that had Bautista walkling away shaking his head.

    The .571 Yankees' Michael Pineda with a solid start that Ivan Nova threw away getting shelled in relief in the 8th.

    Jacoby Ellsbury is becoming really useless really quickly

    Yea, let's just close this thread. Fucking awful. It's time to start being optimistic about Judge, Mateo, Sanchez, Bird and Refsnyder because the core of this team is too old and really bad.

    I don't think Girardi makes it through the whole season.

    Cashman should follow him on the way out. If Chicago wins the WS, the Yankees should open the books for Epstein.

    School zone speed limits are faster than some of these clowns' bat speed.

    Homers, lots of them. Maybe the lineup is so dependent on the long ball that they'll improve as the temperatures go up?

    Best unis in baseball take 3 of 4 against the AL champ Royals.

    Next up, Chris Sale (7-0; 1.74 ERA) and the 1st place Chisox.

    Probably time to send Sevy packing for AAA. Maybe Girardi will be able to prolong the decision by putting him on the DL but he'll have to decide what team he's playing for when he's healthy.

    The Yankees won 2 of 3 against a hot White Sox team to improve to (16-20). Not the way I wanted the season to start, but it is what it is. Not sure what there is to look forward to in the future though, either.

    Accurate scouting report. :(
