Mariano blows first game of season. Let the "over the hill" debate ensue.

Good news: A-Rod gets two hits and two walks, putting him ahead of David Wright in the pool.

No, the contest is about RBIs. The Yankees scored 6 runs. A-Rod drove in none of them. The Mets, OTOH, scored 1 run. Wright drove it in.

If the contest was about meaningless number hanging, A-Rod would be a shoe in.

(RBIs are meaningless number hanging...)

I think you need to interpret what I'm saying in a reasonable way.

Wonderful to get a chance right away to honor Jorge.

No nonsense like that delayed goodbye to Bernie.

Alex Rodriguez tied Ken Griffey Jr. for fifth place on the all-time homer list with No. 630


An opening pitch by Jorge, and Kuroda not giving up a run. Satisfactory day.

ETA: If David Wright continues at his current rate of production, when he has played as long as A-Rod he will be 47th on the list with 411 HRs. But perhaps he has not yet reached his full potential as a slugger.

Noesi pitched 8 scoreless last night and Montero had a double, a HR and 3 RBI while catching the shutout. How's Michael Pineda been doing for you guys?? :P

Over luxury's dissapointment
So he walks over and he's trying
To sympathize with her, but thinks that he should warn her
That the Thirld World is just around the corner

Ibanez had three RBIs last night, including a big HR, and when Pettitte becomes available, we have to cut someone from the rotation (hello, Phil Hughes). So we're not really sufferin'.

It's like waking up from a long bad dream in which, no matter how hard he swung, Derek Jeter could only chop the ball into the ground.

Three home runs in ten games? He's playing like a kid right now. :)

For those of us who miss The Fat Man, Bartolo Colon is pitching for the Oakland A's and doing quite nicely.

Last night he threw 38 straight strikes enroute to beating the Angels 6-0. He's already 3-1 this year with a 2.63 ERA.

Colon.

:wub: the fat man. Wish we could have kept him for those days when it seems a little bit harder to get up.

The Fat Man was durable last year too. He played in 29 games (he started as a reliever and then became a starter) and pitched 164 innings. 4.0 ERA but when he was going good he was unhittable. When he pulled a muscle in the middle of last year lots of people said "Uh-oh, that's it. His body is finally breaking down." But then he came back quickly and finished strong.

I miss him. What a great story he was last year and it looks like he's still rolling along.

And we could have picked him up for pennies. I'd like to have brought him back for a half-season at least, but we ended up with an over-stocked (not necessarily good, but numerous) rotation as it is.

Attended my first Yankees game of the season on Thursday night. I can't remember the last time I went to a game in April, but it was a lovely, balmy night - even in the 400-seats. Arrived in the middle of the first inning with the Yanks down 4-0. Never expected that Hughes would outlast the Twins starter. Granderson is pretty awesome.
