All is well in the world today ....


The Yankees won their home opener at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday. Andy Pettite pitches great. Jeter goes yard. Jorge gets three hits. Mo gets the save. The "core four" shine. The team gets its 2009 World Championship rings, which are handed out by Yogi Berra and Whitey Ford. Matsui, the World Series MVP, who happens to be there with the Angels, gets his ring, gets a huge ovation, and is greeted with hugs from his former teammates. Jeter and Girardi visit the owner's box and personally deliver a championship ring to The Boss. A new World Championship banner hangs over the new Yankee Stadium. A very good day in the Bronx.

Play Ball 2010! Yanks take 2 of 3 at Fenway ...


The World Champion New York Yankees opened the 2010 season by taking 2 of 3 at Fenway Park. Nice. At first, I was kind of ticked that they had to open the season in Boston. (Didn't they also do it a year or two ago?) But after watching the games, I think they should do it every year. As we all know, the Yanks often start the season off slow and seem like they're in a fog. Well, when you're playing the Sox, and 35,000 idiots are calling you every name in the book, that'll wake you up pretty fast. So, as far as I'm concerned, they can open at Fenway every year. I think it serves them well.

It's great to be back here on the blog for a third season. Looking forward to talking Yanks with everyone as the drive for #28 begins ...

NO EXCUSES: YANKS NEED TO STEP IT UP   TO MANY FANS, ONLY A FULL ROUND OF OCTOBER BASEBALL QUALIFIES AS 'PLAYOFFS'    ...
