Good thing the game lasted 2:31 because it’s raining in the Bronx.
Here’s a weird stat for you: That was only the second Opening Day save for Mariano Rivera in his career.
What do Miller Huggins, Joe McCarthy, Casey Stengel, Billy Martin, Joe Torre and Joe Girardi have in common? They each won their first game as manager of the Yankees.
“That’s pretty good company,” Girardi told me as he walked back to the clubhouse after his press conference.
Any way you look it, great start of the season for the Yankees.
Back in a bit with some Girardi audio.
