Mo on his game, hitters are not

The save is a pretty useless statistic. But check this out: Mariano Rivera didn’t pick up a save until April 28 last season. He picked up his third today.

Mo through 3 games: 3 1 0 0 0 4. Good start for him.

The Yankees are fortunate they’ve pitched as well as they have, especially out of the bullpen. They could be 1-5 or 0-6 based on the tepid offense. They are 7 for 45 with runners in scoring position (.155) and have scored 17 runs (2.8 a game).

UPDATE, 4:19 p.m.: I don’t watch a lot of games on YES. I had no idea that the postgame show is sponsored by Bigelow Tea. Hilarious.
