Opening day starters/ Question of the day


One of the things that is most exciting about opening day is that you always see the two teams best pitchers. C.C Sabathia will be going against Justin Verlander on opening day. Stephen Strausburg and Matt Garza will also go head to head in the opener. The Cardinals will likely pitch Adam Wainwright and the Reds Johnny Cueto or Mat Latos. It is always exciting to see how these pitchers perform. Which of these pitchers do you think will out-do the rest?

Yankees talking with Pirates concerning Burnett.


The Yankees and Pirates are in serious talks about veteran right hander A.J  Burnett. Burnett signed with the Yankees along with Mark Teixieria, C.C Sabathia and Nick Swisher before the 2009 season when the Yankees brought home their 27th World Series title. Burnett posted an Earned Run Average (ERA) over 5 last season along with a losing record (which is really bad pitching for baseballs best line-up). But the Pirates will gain a much needed veteran experience to go with their young team which is in a large rebuilding processes that should take many years. I expect that Burnett will have a bounce back year wherever he ends up (as most traded Yankees do)  Either way this should work out for both teams: the Yankees get 5 million dollars off their payroll and the Pirates get an opening day starter.

The Yankees finished with a 97-65 record in 2011 and hope to improve in 2012.With ace pither C.C Sabathia returning and rising stars such as Ivan Nova and Jesus Montero they might just do that.With a rotation that will include Sabathia,Nova,Phil Hughes,Freddy Garcia and A.J Burnett  and also a lineup that will incude stars such as Robinson Cano, Derek Jeter,Alex Rodriguez,Mark Teixeira and Curtis Granderson, the Yankees hope this team will lead them  to their their 28th world series title in 2012.
