    eboland11 Rain now at a light mist. Tarp still on but looks better than it dod an hour ago

    BryanHoch Girardi seems to think they’ll play today, plans on at least light mist during the game. Weather is no better tomorrow

    JackCurryYES Girardi gushing about CC, saying he relishes the role of being the ace

    and my personal favorite tweet from this AM:

    SamBorden “I’m not even supposed to BE here!” – Gustavo Molina #Clerks #FavoriteBaseballQuotes #HeShouldSayIt

  3. I Like Inge March 31st, 2011 at 11:09 am

    Big CC on the found today. Looking forward to listening to the game at work.

  4. RayVT March 31st, 2011 at 11:10 am

    Thanks Chad & Sam! We appreciate your work!

  5. Asd March 31st, 2011 at 11:11 am

    Don’t screw with me weather. That’s a warning.

  6. Erin March 31st, 2011 at 11:11 am

    BryanHoch A.J. Burnett still sick, but Girardi says plan is for him to start as scheduled on Saturday

    Ledger_Yankees Granderson says he got enough reps against live pitching. Tested his oblique at real speed and it came through ok.

    Police: 911 – what’s the emergency?

    Larry L. Lohudder: The blog is down! Help!

    Police: Bob is down? Is he breathing?

    Larry L. Lohudder: No! Blog not Bob! The blog is down! The LoHud Yankee blog! It’s opening day, what are you a Commie?

    As long as the weather doesn’t lead to any injuries….. PLAY BALL!!

    Hope Verlander doesn’t carry over from his sick ST. Could be a pitchers duel.

  9. Niblick March 31st, 2011 at 11:12 am

    It looks like somebody needs some IT help.

  10. CR9 March 31st, 2011 at 11:13 am

    Opening Day is here!

  11. BoJo March 31st, 2011 at 11:13 am

    There were reports this morning of momentary productivity increases in several companies around the country–but the anomaly seems to have corrected itself within the past hour.

  12. Jerkface March 31st, 2011 at 11:13 am

    No lineup as good as this in baseball. Look across the diamond at the Tigers lineup to get an idea of how screwed the rest of baseball is.

  13. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 31st, 2011 at 11:13 am

    HAPPY DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN!!!!!

    I knew it was real when I went onto the MLB site and saw Opening Day Is Here! and I started to cry.

    :)

    Since the site was down all morning I will give everyone until the end of the day to get their picks in for the prediction site. I don’t think one game is going to sway people one way or the other, though you never know!

    I am feeling extremely emotional right now. So I’d like to start our season off this way.

    Everybody I love you. Everybody I do.

    I’m sure that will change day to day! :)

    CHAD – YOU ROCK. THANKS FOR EVERYTHING YOU’VE GIVEN AND EVERYTHING YOU WILL CONTINUE TO GIVE. WE DIED AND WENT TO HEAVEN WHEN YOU CAME ABOARD. (AND SAME GOES FOR SAM.)

    GO YANKEES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    “There were reports this morning of momentary productivity increases in several companies around the country–but the anomaly seems to have corrected itself within the past hour.”

    LAUGHING MY BUTT OFF!!!!!

    :lol:

    The funniest part is that it’s probably true!

    Bojo, so happy you’re here for Opening Day. Good ole times are back. I think that portends a long run of WS championships for our Yanks.

    :)

  17. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 31st, 2011 at 11:20 am

    Pretty sure YES begins its festivities at noon time, for any lucky television watchers (or those who want to set DVRs)

    Trisha- Mine isn’t on there (it was 99).

  20. stjetersburg March 31st, 2011 at 11:22 am

    Would rather flip grandy and martin have in grandy in the 9 hole gives us two lead off hitters and a guy at 9 that can go yard with a few guys on.

  21. CR9 March 31st, 2011 at 11:23 am

    We’ve got to get off to a fast start this season, with only 29 home games after the ASB.

  22. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 31st, 2011 at 11:25 am

    Asd. Will get it there immediately! Thanks for checking. I need everyone to do that if they make predictions because I’ve been known to do things like put down the wrong numbers and forget to put people on (never intentionally of course!)

    :)

  23. JobaTipsHisCap March 31st, 2011 at 11:25 am

    weather stinks

  24. blake March 31st, 2011 at 11:26 am

    What did they shut down the blog to prevent BUC debates on opening day?

    Go Yanks! :)

  25. Triple Short of a Cycle March 31st, 2011 at 11:27 am

    CR9 = fail

  26. Erin March 31st, 2011 at 11:27 am

    weather stinks

    is it raining at the ballpark? hopefully it stays dry and they get the game in b/c saw tomorrow’s forecase and it looks worse

  31. JobaTipsHisCap March 31st, 2011 at 11:29 am

    btw, ESPN mag projected Yanks to finish the 3rd place in AL East.

  32. BD (Boston Dave) March 31st, 2011 at 11:29 am

    JF is right.

    Best lineup in baseball right now until proven otherwise.

    Granderson 8th? Wow. The guy is gonna rake this year.

  33. JobaTipsHisCap March 31st, 2011 at 11:30 am

    tampayank, I am in midtown now, it’s not raining, but it’s cloudy and temp is sort of low.

  34. 108 stitches March 31st, 2011 at 11:30 am

    Lousy weather even for football but like any sport, it’s all about business, more revenue, and those TV contracts bringing in big $$$.

  35. austinmac March 31st, 2011 at 11:31 am

    Bojo,

    My productivity still stinks. It’s opening day. Thank God for mlb.tv or I would have to goof off at home instead of at work.

  36. Erin March 31st, 2011 at 11:32 am

    YankeesPR Mike Mussina is in the house! #firstpitch #openingday

  37. LGY March 31st, 2011 at 11:32 am

    Scored a pair of Field Infield seats for only 30 bucks each! Gotta find my calculator then off to the stadium :)

  38. Triple Short of a Cycle March 31st, 2011 at 11:32 am

    CR9,

    I heard the umpires have money on todays game :)

  39. AZ88 March 31st, 2011 at 11:32 am

    Did you see the Indians game yesterday against their minor league team?

    If they could play in that, we can play in a little rain ;)

    austinmac-I’m out of work in about an hour. I knew there was no way I’d get any work done once the game starts. ;)

    Pro tip if you are going to really see a live game, bring a few collated spreadsheets and poke a pin hole in the center and watch the game through the hole. Stops you from being blinded by live baseball.

  43. Erica in NY March 31st, 2011 at 11:34 am

    Erica’s Avengers will prevail!

    El Duque – got it.

    I won’t post the chart with each addition, but I will post it just prior to the game, and then again about an hour after the game, just to be sure I have gotten any new entries.

  45. upstate kate March 31st, 2011 at 11:34 am

    excellent LGY!!!

  46. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 31st, 2011 at 11:35 am

    tampa yank et al -

    I have the prediction chart set up on a web space. Therefore nobody can add to it but me.

    If you have a prediction you want added, just tell me and I will put it on for you.

    :)

  47. CR9 March 31st, 2011 at 11:35 am

    They dont need money on the game Triple! It’s an inherent bias! They’ll steal a couple runs away from us today, be sure of that. But it’s up to the Yankees to overcome it, as usual. :)

  48. Mell March 31st, 2011 at 11:37 am

    “It is our right seven months out of the year to sit on the couch with a bowl of pretzels and a frosty cold one and watch baseball…baseball is America’s game. It belongs to the people and the people is…us. So I say, let there be baseball. Let there be life.” – Al Bundy

  49. Erin March 31st, 2011 at 11:38 am

    Ledger_Yankees Mo just pulled the bottom of his pants down to his shoes. It would appear high socks are a spring thing.

  50. austinmac March 31st, 2011 at 11:38 am

    Erin,

    Good call on going home. You are tempting me.

  51. upstate kate March 31st, 2011 at 11:40 am

    oh too bad…I liked the high socks look. I wonder if Robbie will have his ninja mask on.

  52. pat March 31st, 2011 at 11:41 am

    Happy Opening Day.

    About 10 miles from the Stadium and the sky brightened up about 20 minutes ago. :smile:

  53. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 31st, 2011 at 11:41 am

    “btw, ESPN mag projected Yanks to finish the 3rd place in AL East.”

    I LOVE it!!!!! ESPN – biggest losers in the world.

    **********

    austinmac – I always took a half day out of work on Opening Day (or a full day if I went to the game!)

    You just have to do it.

    Good lookin out. I an downloading some Bill James lectures to my phone to protect my ears from the sound of live baseball as well.

  56. NJ Pete March 31st, 2011 at 11:42 am

    trisha – not sure who it was but i saw someone predict 103 last night

  60. pat March 31st, 2011 at 11:44 am

    SPTimesRays #Rays sign RHP Wade Davis to long-term deal – could go 7 years, be worth $35.1M. First 4 are guaranteed, worth $12.6M.

  61. randy l. March 31st, 2011 at 11:44 am

    bd-

    i’m down in miami and i get put in with a foursome that has a die hard red sox fan in it from new hampshire. when the guy hears i’m from cape cod he starts talking red sox smack because he assumes i’m a red sox fan. i politely tell him i’m a yankee fan, and tell him he’s pretty confident for a fan of non playoff team. we’re polite because it’s golf and we’re stuck with each other for the round.

    he starts talking gonzalez and crawford and while thinking of retort, i top my tee shot and hit a grounder for about 50 yards that would make jeter proud. he’s smiling and tells me to hit another one. i said why, i’m going to par it anyway( it was a par 5).

    i hit two two irons and i’m on the front of the large green in three . the flag is way in the back( maybe a 45 foot putt, maybe more). the red sox guy is holding the flag and i just want to lag close and get my par because i know it will piss him off.

    i let it go and it rolls and rolls and is looking good and then hits dead center and disappears in the bottom of the cup at the guys feet. birdie.

    he and i both knew : yankees one, red sox nothing .

    the season started for me with that guy trash talking on the first tee . game on.

  62. CR9 March 31st, 2011 at 11:45 am

    Behold, the start of a new baseball season. When someone says they’ve had e- neuf baseball…I, Pir-One, say NEIN! I mean, NO!

  63. Mell March 31st, 2011 at 11:45 am

    Ledger_Yankees Mo just pulled the bottom of his pants down to his shoes. It would appear high socks are a spring thing.

    ===========

    Boo! Guys look more like ballplayers with high socks.

  64. Dionysius Thelxinoe March 31st, 2011 at 11:45 am

    Trisha, it was me, I think, that predicted 103 last night.

    Or was it 104? Too many Coronas.

  65. LGY March 31st, 2011 at 11:47 am

    Luckily I’m under an overhang so it will be dimly lit abd protected from the elements.

    Really shouldn’t be much different than mothers basement.Hopefully no human gets too close to me

  66. Warning Track Power March 31st, 2011 at 11:47 am

    How is the weather so far over there in The Bronx today? I read on weather.com that showers are expected to fall all day today.

  67. Triple Short of a Cycle March 31st, 2011 at 11:48 am

    I’d be shocked if the winner of the East had more then 95 wins. Too many good teams in the divsion

    Guys sorry. I didn’t look at last night’s posts. That’s probably why I missed Asd also.

    Will get the ones from right now and then so search last night’s. Promise I will get them all.
