Lady Loves Pinstripes:
The New York Yankees won the first game in a four game set against the Cleveland Indians, 11-6.
This is the second win in row for the Yankees after beating up Tigers ace Justin Verlander on Sunday.
No doubt the Yankees look a lot better after going 1-4 to start the season, but are fans feeling better about the team now?
To get some answers I turned to twitter to check out what Yankee fans were tweeting afterwards:

Left-handed reliever Clay Rapada has signed with the New York Yankees on a minor league contract.
Rapada, 32, has been in the major leagues for six years, his last year spent with the Yankees. In 2012, Clay Rapada had a 3-0 record with a 2.82 ERA. He struck out 38 in 38.1 innings. In 2012, Rapada held...

A toll free phone number previously used by the New York Yankees box office now connects callers to an adult chat line.
This is just strange from all directions. First, it’s the Yankees. Regardless of who is on the DL, they are still way ahead of everyone in terms of payroll. Two, it’s Kevin Youkilis as their new mouthpiece in the dugout, a former member of the hated Red Sox. Anyway, last week, the Yankees were being left for dead and on their way to a 1-161 record after a terrible start to their...
New York Yankees 11 — Cleveland Indians 6
Travis Hafner made his return to Cleveland in a big way in today’s 11-6 win over the Cleveland Indians, their second win in a row.
The home opener featured Ubaldo Jimenez as the starting pitcher for the Indians. A walk of Robinson Cano and a single to Kevin Youkilis put two on for the returning Travis Hafner.
In 10 years with the...

It was a cold, snowy Opening Day in the Bronx. The Yankees defeated the Kansas City Royals, 7-3. Starter Andy Pettitte allowed 3R in 6.1IP (6H, 2BB), earning the win. Newcomers Joe Girardi, replacing Mike Stanley, and Tino Martinez, replacing Don Mattingly, get booed during pregame introductions. Girardi goes 1-for-5 batting in the second spot and rookie shortstop Derek...
The New York Yankees are 2-4 after six games. I know it is only six games and you really can’t judge after that. There is a lot of panic in Yankee land and a lot of people saying I told you so. I am not really one of those people because I believe that the Yankees will be able to hang in there until they get some of their stars back and then they can fully compete with the...
Chelsea's action-packed season finally has an end point after the announcement of a second game in the United States against Manchester City , this time at Yankee Stadium in New York.
Last season's Champions League winners are on course to play 70 competitive matches this term - if they advance to the Europa League and FA Cup finals.
City and Chelsea first meet in Sunday...
Early this week, with the Eve-Emps on the verge of elimination from the 2013 AL pennant race, we pondered orchestrating a worldwide juju relief mission of mercy - an intervention known by some as "charging the mound."Well, it worked. The Yankees are 3-1, baby, three-and-one, since we mentioned the - um - thing. We're not going to burst our britches on this, because...
Carlos Carrasco hasn’t pitched in a Major League game since 2011. After allowing a grand slam against the Royals, he threw at the head of Billy Bulter and was tossed and suspended for 5-games. However, he did not serve it … Continue reading →
The first week of Major League Baseball for 2013 is in the books. Yeah, I am a traditional Sunday to Saturday type guy. The Game Picks had a good first week. After a 10-10 first few days, the picks went 37-19 over the last four days with a 10-5 day again yesterday. Now if I can just get over my obsession with picking the Astros, I will be okay. The best pick of yesterday was choosing...
Has more RBIs than 8 teams
10) If Chris Davis isn't on your fantasy team roster, you aren't in first place
9) CC Sabathia outdueled Justin Verlander to salvage a game in Detroit for the Yankees, and at least 100,000 in paid attendance in the Bronx in April
8) In the time it took you to read this, a Houston Astro has struck out
7) Marco Scutaro showed that while he may...
"That was a tough ballgame. They’ve got a bunch of good hitters and Stras threw the ball all right. But he didn’t hit his spots when he needed to. It cost us." (Davey Johnson, via Washington Times, 4/7/2013)
Reds 6, Nationals 3: Well, at least there was that one changeup to Votto. Strasburg just didn't have it (5.1 IP, 9 H, 6 R, 4 BB, 5 K, 114 pitches),...
