Yanks scored plenty of runs in first two games and should have won both of them. They are really starting to miss A-Rod, the middle relief pitchers are erratic and the team seems to lack some fire sometimes. The BoSox are a grittier team, or at least that's how it looked this weekend. Andy has pitched better than his record shows, and he didn't look to happy with Jorge after that steal of home. Sometimes, it still feels like Mattingly may have been the right guy to manage this team. He's a lot more fiery than people think, and part of the reason Torre was so respected by the players is because he was such a great player. Mattingly was even better. Hope they get hot soon.

Yanks got pounded, 10-2, in their first official game at the new Yankee Stadium. It was a great game until the 7th inning, when the bullpen completely imploded. Opening ceremony was nice. And at least a Yankee got the first hit in the new stadium (Damon) and the first homerun (Posada). Sabbathia was also decent. Other than that, it was awful.

Wang's ERA, after giving up another nine runs on Monday, is now so high that he must throw 150 consecutive shutouts to get it down to respectibility. The only bright side is that the only TV show I really like to watch is "House," and with the score 9-0 in the second inning last night, it was pretty easy to flip the channel.

Yanks have started the 2009 season at 0-2. They've scored some runs, but the starting pitching has been awful. (Sabbathia and Wang) Remember last year, when they had such a horrible April that they buried themselves into such a deep hole they couldn't ever get out of it? And that was before the injuries started. Still, no need to panic. This team is very good. (But the truth is, though you can't win the pennant in April, you can lose it.) If it's any consolation, the 1998 Yankees - perhaps the greatest baseball team of all-time - started the season at 0-3.
