Update::Yankees: Opening Day

Update:: Today, the Yankees opening day may be subject to a rain delay. C.C. Sabathia will take the mound and Jeter will bat second (always vs. RHP). The game is set to kick off: Yankee stadium, Bronx NY, 1:05PM EST ESPN/YES. Read the Jeter quote:

“If Gardner were to lead off against righties, Jetes will lead off with lefties,” Yankee coach Joe Girardi said. “You can bank on that.”

On the eve of opening day (Thurs Mar 31), let’s take a look at the NY Yankees: A-Rod, Derek Jeter, and Mariano Rivera. A-Rod has been on fire in spring training maintaining an astounding .388 batting average with six HR’s and 15 RBI’s in 18 games. Derek Jeter has a .304 BA for spring training. Rivera still got stuff pitching 5.0 innings, giving up three hits, no runs, and striking out six.

“Alex’s spring was unbelievable, there’s no other way to really describe it,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.
