Opening Day; or, Jason Giambi is on Pace for 486 RBIs

I have an uneasy feeling about this year for the Yankees, but they hit their way to a win over the Devil Rays today. The Yanks once again enter the season with a fearsome lineup and a stable of aging pitchers (so banged up already that Carl Pavano got the Opening Day start). This, as the team has discovered time and again this decade, is a perfect recipe for going 92-70 and then losing the first chance you get in October.

Alas, I shouldn't be so grumpy on Opening Day. The Red Sox lost to the lowly Royals, so 2007 is off to a good start all around. Baseball is the rhythm section in any good summer, and I think we could all use a really good summer. Here we go...

You're right, you really shouldn't be so grumpy. For the first time in a decade, the Yankees have a number of good pitchers in AAA to call up: Hughes, Ohlendorf, Clippard.... The bullpen will be fantastic, the lineup is head and shoulders above any else in the game, and when Phil Franchise and Rocket Clemens are both toeing the rubber in the Bronx, it'll be a more than adequate rotation to get the Yanks a ring.
