For the second straight season and the fourth time in five years, the Giants get the Cowboys in the season opener. The other four times haven’t gone so well as the Giants are 0-4 in the those and the G-Men haven’t won the first game of the season since 2010.
The Yankees will see some old faces in Chien-Ming Wang and Ian Kennedy with the Royals coming to the Bronx to continue a tough 10-game homestand.
It’s been a while since I have done an email exchange with Mike Hurley, but with the Yankees reeling, I thought it was time to ask him how to live through a potential last-place season.
I usually hate when the Yankees go to Toronto, but after the weather in the first five games of the season, some start times you can count on in a dome isn’t the worst thing.
The Yankees leave cold New York for even colder Detroit where there’s snow in the forecast at Comerica Park and a powerful offense coming off a season-opening three-game sweep.
Opening Day for the Yankees will be a repeat of the wild-card game as they host the Astros with Masahiro Tanaka on the mound against Dallas Keuchel. Let’s just hope the 2016 season doesn’t being with the same result the 2015 season ended with after the Yankees were shut out at home.

The Yankees and Blue Jays are separated by 1 1/2 games and over the last 25 games the two teams play each other seven times. One team will win the AL East and the other will play in the one-game playoff.
Two weeks ago, the Yankees looked like they would cruise to the ALDS and now they’re fighting for their season and to stay out of the one-game playoff.
