Welcome home, Yankees

The Yankees have just come off the first base line, and it seemed to me that Joba Chamberlain got the biggest cheers of any player — bigger than Derek Jeter, bigger than Alex Rodriguez. Phil Hughes also was very loudly received, as were Joe Girardi and Shelley Duncan. Like we’ve said, it’s a new team.

Mike Mussina got the moose calls. One player was booed — no names mentioned, but here’s a hint, he wears No. 48 and is a right-handed relief pitcher. Just minutes away right now from the first pitch of the Yankees season. Escorted to the mound by Yogi Berra, Reggie Jackson has just thrown out the ceremonial first pitch, right over the plate to Jose Molina.

Great job, Yanks! Nice start to 2008….

It’s good to be back, although I must admit that football season was quite nice with the G-Men pulling off the shocker against Belichek and Brady.

EXACTLY what I was thinking. About 15 or 20 pounds lighter maybe? But definitely younger.

Bruney has become a DJ. He is preparing life after the Yankees as we speak.

Dont like the number of batters Wang has fallen to 2-0 against. BUT, finally a good quick inning.

Like this

better than some of the previous innings with 5/6 pitchcounts. I’d put money on a 1-run complete game by Halladay the way this is going though.

not a lot of quality abs in that inning.

Rios is going to regret that AB if the Blue Jays don’t take the game.
