It is finally upon us! The day we have all waited for since the final out ended the Yankees season in disappointment back in 2013. But now it's 2014 and excitement is in the air! The Yankees have gone through a transformation of sorts through the off-season. A transformation that we largely ignored here on the blog, but mostly because we had cool things going on in our personal lives, which totally detracted from our signature diatribes against, and on behalf of, the Yankees. But before we get into that, I wanted to mention that I caught part of the Mariners game against the Angels last night and was able to see Cano play. He went 2-4 with a double, and ran out a weak grounder to land him safe at first, showing that he does in fact hustle when he needs to. I wish him all the best in Seattle!
As for the Yankees, we now start the season with a revamped roster. Beltran, Ellsbury, McCann and Tanaka were some of the bigger off season splashes, but not to be overlooked, we have added Kelly Johnson and Brian Roberts to fill the voids left at 2nd and 3rd base. We also have Pineda in the rotation to start the season. So this is a very different Yankees team from what we saw last season, and all I'm saying is that the Yankees better sweep the Astros. Go Yankees!
