New York Yankees
Craig “the lifelong Mets fan” was in the Bronx on Monday afternoon for the Yankees’ home opener. And he left Yankee Stadium a little upset…
Craig was there at the Stadium and was thrilled with the outcome, while Boomer sounded as if he is growing more and more annoyed with the nonstop Jeter fawning.
Robertson had an MRI earlier in the day that revealed the injury. He has posted two saves this season and has allowed one hit in three scoreless innings.
Derek Jeter gave Yangervis Solarte some assistance with Yankee Stadium tradition, then the rookie helped make the captain a winner in his final home opener Monday as New York beat the Baltimore Orioles 4-2.
Opening Day, Bronx, New York, USA. And yes, we still get chills, no matter our age or wage.
Yankees fans will have at least 80 more chances — hopefully — to say goodbye to Derek Jeter. But the first had a special feel to it, thanks to some old friends.
Masahiro Tanaka, who landed in the Bronx like other high-end Japanese players — wrapped in a foreign flag, mystery and millions — pitched with the chutzpah of a native New Yorker. He was tough, talented and unrelenting.
Blocking the plate used to be an “at your own risk” proposition for a catcher. MLB is trying to change that. Unfortunately, as we saw in Saturday’s 4-0 Yankees loss to the Blue Jays, it’s not going to be so easy.
Boomer and Craig’s perception with regards to the significance of today’s game differed a bit, which is a good thing in the radio business.
The New York Yankees have placed first baseman Mark Teixeira on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring and recalled catcher Austin Romine from Triple-A Scranton.
The Yankees may want to hold on to the guy because he could very well end up being a key component this season. All this talk, at least by the television announcers, of possibly trading Ichiro, should stop immediately.
Before the Yankees’ home opener on Monday against the Orioles at 1:05 p.m., the “Core Four” of Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Andy Pettitte and Jorge Posada will be reunited on the field.
Fans in both Japan and North America will be eager to follow the fortunes of Tanaka, who cost the Yankees $175 million when they signed him in January.
Rookie Yangervis Solarte had three hits and an RBI in his first major league start and Derek Jeter drove in a run to give the New York Yankees their first win this season.
Gabe Costa takes an approach which is both subjective and qualitative. He takes a look at both temporal (historical) and spatial (geographical) aspects of this issue in Part 1.
