I know that Tanaka was just " fine tuning" his stuff the other day. Working on a seventh pitch, perhaps.
But he is our opening day starter, right? Is that selection based upon who gets paid the most? Sorry...I digress.
Opening Day Prediction for the Yankees;
1. Tanaka will give up six or seven runs early, then "settle" in, parting with one out in the 6th.
2. He will pitch well the last 3 or so innings of his outing, and claim, " no arm problems," the next morning.
3. Girardi will find something positive to say about his work, and have a reasonable explanation for the early "hammering."
4. The Yankees will score two runs, one earned.
A minor, meaningless stumble on or way to the play-in, wild card game. Half the teams in baseball will lose on opening day.
