Home opener!

It sounds like the Yankees had a pretty rough flight into Toronto. I'm not going to feel sorry for them.

Roy Halladay throws the first pitch. Too bad he can't throw 100 more.

Masahiro Tanaka makes his first MLB start tonight. He can wait until his next start to get his first MLB win. Dustin McGowan goes for the Jays. Can't help but be thrilled for the guy.

The Yankees are resting Derek Jeter, Brian Roberts and Altonso Soriano. They are afraid of the turf at Rogers. I'm ok with them sitting guys out here. Like Tanaka for example.

Remember we have rules around here. Some reminders, don't talk about illegal streams, don't argue with the Mods and don't be terrible.
