The Yankees managed to not get swept in their season-opening series, beating the Red Sox 4-2 at home. They were led offensively by Brett Gardner, Eduardo Nunez and Lyle Overbay, which is hilarious because it highlights how truly awful the 2013 Yankees are. For a good franchise, those guys are starting in Triple-A, not in the majors on a team trying to pretend it is a contender. But big names did contribute tonight for the Yankees. The pitching staff was led by Andy Pettitte and Mariano Rivera: middle-aged men who were in their primes during the Clinton administration. Yeah, the Yankees have a REALLY bright future!
Oh, and the Yankees' payroll is more than $200 million.
