Quick Hit: Yankees Win On Opening Day!!!

Say it with me: 2024 is not 2023. The 2023 Yankees surely would have lost today's game after falling behind 4-0 almost immediately. The 2023 Yankees would have blown the lead, even if they had crawled back when the going got tough, as it did for the Yankees on Opening Day. But these are the 2024 Yankees. These Yankees worked walks, pushed through some early failures with runners in scoring position, came back against the Astros using the whole lineup, and just as it looked as though Clay Holmes would blow it, Juan Soto threw out a runner at home to preserve the victory. 2024 already tastes like a better flavor of Yankees than 2023. Even better when such a good win happens against the Astros! Happy Opening Day, Yankee Fans!!!

It's only 1 game, But, it's One Great W, for the new Yankees, with all their issues, lack of depth (eh-hem), old age and injuries, we still beat the dreaded Astros..!! Nobody is honed in yet, one day out of spring training, but we showed a lot of "it Ain't Over, Til It's Over!!! No article about what Cashman didn't do right, no Rereading Last years stats, thank God !!! ... There's gonna be good games and bad,.. but this season Will be Different... Enjoy the well deserved Win, I am..

8 hits

and 9 walks

and one Rizzo-dusting


that's a lot of base-runners


the offense did not look powerful


but it didn't require power because it manifested patience and judgment.


if it retains the patience until and after the power gets turned on

very good things will happen

and

it serves us well to understand that today's 5 runs was a slight underperformance

When the Yankees were down 4-0 in the second inning, if you were to go to one of those "Yankee Fan" facebook pages, the members of those "groups" were already declaring "FIRE BOONE!" and "FIRE CASHMAN!" and "Yankees s--k!", literally just 2 innings into the 1st of 162 games of the new season. Their comments didn't age well. Nestor Cortes, despite spotting Houston 4 early runs, actually didn't pitch all that bad. After giving up the homer, Cortes retired 12 of the final 13 batters he faced, completing 5 innings of 5-hit ball.

Win, lose, or draw, I still think Cashman needs to no longer run the day to day of the Yankees.

Big win! I said the same thing to my buddy, this is a game we would have lost last year. As a whole, the at bats were really good today (minus the 3 DP ground balls). Both Verdugo & Soto had big plays in the field, one with a catch and the other with a throw. Only negative was that Nestor struggled early, but he did rebound to at least go 5. Go Yanks!

But who is going to show up in five days? The guy who got 12 of 13, or the guy who let 6 of the first 9 on, 4 of whom scored?

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
