The Yankees released their Opening Day roster on Sunday, and it includes a 20 percent turnover just from the beginning of spring training. Among the new faces that we will see on Opening Day are RHP Shawn Kelley, 1B Lyle Overbay, and OFs Brennan Boesch, Vernon Wells, and Ben Francisco.
To add Overbay to the 40-man roster, the team designated LHP Clay Rapada for assignment. Earlier this week, the team designated RHP David Aardsma for assignment and outrighted RHP Sam Demel off the roster. The Yankees had also released IF David Adams to make room on the 40-man roster.

The only smart thing I did yesterday was exit the game early with the rest of the Stadium because honestly no one could...

CC Sabathia is the ace of the Yankees pitching staff and got the start today. After a strong first inning that featured two strikeouts, a walk of Jarrod...
Alex Rodriguez says he's committed to returning from hip surgery and is looking forward to proving he can regain the form that made him a three-time AL MVP.
The New York Yankees third baseman spoke before Monday's opener against Boston, his first public comments since the Jan. 16 operation on his left hip. His surgeon said A-Rod should be able to return to the Yankees around...
Sorry, world. The New York Yankees just won April Fools' Day 2013. The Yanks serenaded their hated rivals the Boston Red Sox with "The Imperial March" from The Empire Strikes Back as the Sox walked onto the field at Yankee Stadium. Perfect revenge for all those "Evil Empire" jokes throughout the years.
And the music the Yanks walked out to? The theme from...

We shouldn't get too caught up over one game right? NAHHHHH. CUE THE DUCKBOATS.
162-0 baby! The Red Sox attacked an unusally shaky CC Sabathia and Jon Lester managed to work through a rough inning and let the bullpen come in and do shut down the Yankees and come out with an 8-2 win.
This wasn't a classic Sox victory with the lineup cranking out three or four homers...
