This weekend we got 37 innings and 13 hours and 26 minutes of baseball and also a 16-minute delay for a power outage and some sloppy and embarrassing play from the Yankees.
Joe Girardi made me proud in the second game of the season when he decided to not manage his bullpen for a stat, but rather for a win.
CC Sabathia has been the most important Yankee since becoming one in 2009, but that’s no longer as the case and there’s a new No. 1 for 2015.
It’s time to look at the 2015 Yankees with some over/unders to get a better sense of what type of season we can expect in the Bronx.
The only thing that needs to happen between now and Opening Day is that the Yankees stay healthy, but they seem to be having a hard time doing so.
The only way to think about the 2015 Yankees is positively or it’s going to be a long summer, which makes it easier to do over/unders for the season.
The Yankees over/under numbers for win is 82.5 and that’s because the level of comfort entering this season feels exactly the way it did for the last two years.
JJ of Barstool Sports New York joins me to talk about the state of the Yankees, his chase of Brandon McCarthy’s wife Amanda and hanging out with Vidal Nuno at the bar.
Bryan Hoch of MLB.com joins me to talk about the Yankees’ surge to open the “second half” and if they are really a playoff team with two months of baseball left.
