Nothing says “SPRING’S HERE!!!!” more than opening day at Yankee Stadium. The weather may suck, but,hell, at least it’s not snowing…..
The New York Yankees will play game #1 tomorrow under the helm of a different Joe….. Girardi will steer the team in a fresh new direction, as he leads one of the youngest Yankee teams EVER, on to the field, on a quest for Championship #27.
We all have alot to look forward to this year – while Joe Torre was an excellent manager, I truly believe that he became predictable and unexciting towards the end of his illustrious stay with the team. The time was right for this change. Girardi brings with him, excitement, to the Bronx. I for one, cannot wait to see how the season plays out: How will The Three Amigos (Kennedy, Hughes & Chamberlain) handle the newfound fame? How will the bullpen hold up? Apparently, Girardi has had an incredible effect on Farnsworth….How will Andy Pettitte and Mike Mussina hold up? And….the most important question that has gone unanswered: where the HELL is Carl Pavano, and are we still paying him???
I”m looking forward to tailgating in the Bronx in the AM….the last time I did that was during the Cleveland series in which we were eliminated from further play in ’07. Let’s hope for a win tomorrow, and even more importantly, a Championship to close out the greatest sporting venue in the history of the game…..
