Gameday Post #1: Yankees at Tampa Bay Rays

It’s that time again, boys and girls … OPENING DAY!!!!!

Last year I got a little sidetracked and crazy busy, but this year I’m gonna give it another go: 162 games, 162 posts (the “high” watermark is 16 games). I’m gonna do a preview of each game consisting of the pitching probables, up-to-date division standings, a recap of the previous game and lineups whenever available. I’m also gonna try to sprinkle in some video entries every now and then … something new for the blog. It should make for a fantastic 2012 season so sit back, relax, and enjoy yourselves as the Yankees push towards their 28th World Series title!
