Prediction


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.

The Yankees have become what the Mets used to be: more focused on saving money than on winning, and settling for playing "meaningful" games in September.

Dear Anon.....


I know the answer to your question.

The answer is: Hal does not give two turds that the landscape of baseball is changing to the Mets. That the kiddies are all wearing Mets beanies.

The Reason is simple; The bucks keep rolling in.

He only cares about money, and keeping Brian Cashman from showing those compromising photos he has of him with his prized long-pronged sheep.
