I promised Mr. November I would post after the Yankees first win.. so.. here goes...
After cursing C.C. Sabathia in his first start (is this the guy we paid all that money for?) and watching the youngster Orioles get hit after hit off of Chien-Ming Wang, the Yankees secured their first win yesterday. The 1:30 start time didn't allow me to watch the game yesterday, so I'm not up on the play by play. But, A.J. Burnett got his first win, Mark Teixeira looks like he's starting to rembember how to hit... and I've picked my favorite "no name" Yankee to root for this year... Nick Swisher.
It's nice to see him contiributing and for his "firery" attitude. I mean, the guy thought he was coming to NY to be the starting first baseman, before they decided to sign a big-name free agent. So, now he's stuck on the bench. Instead of being dejected, he seems to be happy to be there. I hope he has a good season and his laid back, fun attitude rubs off on some of his teammates... Yes, I'm talking about you, A-Rod.
