The Yankees have now finished 0.006% of their season, and already we are seeing "Money For Nothing" headlines? Sure, CC Sabathia's 400 pound ass threw an embarassing 5 innings yesterday. It happens. Mark Teixeira went o for 5. Nobody's perfect. Now, let's all take a deep breath and take our heads out of each other's asses. We can't all be hacks like those over at the Daily News, can we?
Opening Day does not a season make. We can all agree that with CC and Tex making their big debut and all, it would have been nice to win the first one. But they didn't. And to me, that's not a story.
The Metropolatinos, on the other hand, Showed that the bullpen that cost them a playoff spot last year is not the same as it was a year ago. Sean Green, J.J. Putz, and K-Rod combined for 3 1/3 scoreless innings to preserve a 2-1 Mets victory. There's your back cover, Daily News. K-Rod doing his ridiculous pointing-to-the-sky-and-showing-up-hitters pose. Now stop trying to create a mutiny with the fans of the Varsity team.
