And We're Back
The RJG took an unexpected weekend hiatus to head over to Florida and begin pushing the Yankee brass to make some roster decisions. The result was Gardner getting selected as the centerfielder and Albaladejo being named to the bullpen. With the bullpen and outfield shored up, we have a clear sign that opening day is fast approaching. As a matter of fact, one week from today we have the first game of the season against the Baltimore Orioles. For those who can't wait, there are a pair of exhibition games with the Cubs at the new stadium on Friday and Saturday. Excitement is in the air, and opening day is near. Jeter's first .400 average season is soon going to start, and Sabathia's first 30 win season will begin with a victory on that day. Robinson Cano's 40 homeruns begin that day too, as does Brett Gardner's 70 steals. Let this post serve as a reminder that if you haven't requested to leave work early on Monday, now's the time to do so. Let's go Yankees!
