Man the Yankees need a win. I hope Phil hughes pitches at least decent we can hope.
Phil Hughes vs jeremy hellickson?
Gee whos gonna win that one.
Hellickson is legit Ace. Hughes could still be good but he will never be an ace.
Ibanez is still good defensively huh? At least Ibanez stupid play didn't cost the Yankees another run.....
Ibanez should never field, ever.
BUNCH OF SPOILED PIECE OF GARBAGE. Jesus Christ I wanna smack all of them. Except Hughes, he did alright today.

Its not about loosing, its about **MAKING** bed on opening day. I am so ******* sick of this ****. for once I'd like strong opener.
Hughes though Really, 4.2 inning? Thats it?

Ugh, fine. Some good news then.
God if Pettite or Pineda or both doesnt work out Yankees are ******. Below .500 is likely.
i think the Yankees season may be over now
LOL. By September, you guys won't even remember this series. I expect the Yankees to be there at the end, battling the Rays, but talking about small sample size, 3 out of 162 is miniscule. Toronto is much improved and I expect them to be battling Boston for 3rd place, especially once Bobby V implodes.
"After my fourth season I asked for $43,000 and General Manager Ed Barrow told me, 'Young man, do you realize Lou Gehrig, a 16-year-man, is playing for only $44,000?' I said, Mr. Barrow, there is only one answer to that - Mr. Gehrig is terribly underpaid."- Yankees outfielder Joe DiMaggio
My dad rest his soul, once told me exactly what his dad told him:
"Every team wins 50 games and every team loses 50 games. It is truly the 62 in the middle that make or break each team."
That saying has been accurate other than maybe the seasons the Mariners and Yankees both won more than 112 games.
Another fact to chew on is that teams go through a lot of hot and cold spells in this sport. In football, you have to pretty well be on most of the 16 game schedule but as in almost every sport the time to peak is the last portion of the season such as August, September and October in baseball.
The sweep sucks but we won't even remember this September 1st.
"There has always been a saying in baseball that you can't make a hitter, but I think you can improve a hitter. More than you can improve a fielder. More mistakes are made hitting than in any other part of the game."

"I know I'm the world's worst fielder, but who gets paid for fielding? There isn't a great fielder in baseball getting the kind of dough I get paid for hitting."

I know it's early, but we need a W badly tonight. Just look at the Red Sox last year. Everyone says these early games "don't matter" but when you miss the playoffs by a game, all of a sudden they seem more important than you thought.
On the bright side, we aren't playing terrible. Jeter and A-Rod have looked decent at the plate and the bullpen outside of Mariano's hiccup should be fine. Hughes threw well and you know Sabathia won't put up too many stinkers like opening day. All in all, there is no reason to panic yet, but it is naive to think everything is ok if we don't sweep or take 2 of the next 3 in Baltimore.
