In little more than a week, on April 6th, the Yankees open the season. Today, manager Joe Girardi proclaimed the starting pitcher against the Orioles will be CC Sabathia.
The first game in the Bronx will be April 16th against the Indians.
Ok, who could be surprised by this? The Yankee ace gets the ball to open up the season. The surprise would have been anyone else getting the nod.
The staff is really rounding into shape as Joba and Burnett have pitched all but "lights out" ball this week. If the staff stays healthy, and they should, the Yankees will be playing in October.
