The Yankees fielded the following lineup at home on Opening Day: Brett Gardner, Eduardo Nunez, Robinson Cano, Kevin Youkilis, Vernon Wells, Ben Francisco, Ichiro Suzuki, Jayson Nix and Francisco Cervelli. They then proceeded to get crushed, 8-2, to a fairly hopeless Boston Red Sox team — with Yankees phenom-to-bust Joba Chamberlain sporting a ridiculous mustache while getting lit up for three runs in the ninth inning.

Oh, and the Yankees' payroll is more than $200 million.
