Opening Day is finally here. After a long winter, we once again have something to talk about at the water cooler, prompting many Americans to return to work (hence the most recent jobs report). The Yankees begin the season looking strong, but with a string of minor injuries. More worrisome, however, are some of the unanswered questions hanging over the Yankees. Will A-Rod ever meet with the Feds? Will A-Rod start dating Sandra Bullock in the coming weeks? Will Montero get a September call-up?
Many teams would buckle under the weight of such questions, but not these Yankees. They are a team of high character guys who only care about core family values like increasing revenue and winning.
Fittingly, the Yankees begin their quest for number 28 by facing a team who haunted them in the first half of last year, their biggest rival, Boston. It should make for an interesting opening series, since the more pessimistic amongst us will have a chance starting from day one to make dire predictions about the Yankees chances this October.
Enjoy the return of Baseball, everyone!
