Yankees Back On Track As They Open New Stadium

Well, the Yankees got back on track with two straight wins against the Tampa Bay Rays that improved their record to 5-4 in this very young baseball season. Not bad, really, considering that the Yanks started the season at 0-2.

So, the Yankees now head back home to the “Beautiful Bronx” to play the first game at the new Yankee Stadium against the Cleveland Indians on Thursday, April 16, 2009 … This historic game will be very exciting to watch.

Now, it’s also time that I get back on track.

I had a very spiritual and enjoyable Holy Week and Easter Day. But, the past 10-14 days have been a very busy time for me in many areas of my everyday life that have greatly limited my blogging and computer activities. I look forward to getting back into the action of everyday “posting” of entries on my mlblog, as well as, offering my comments, thoughts, and opinions on as many blogs as possible around the MLBlogosphere.

Many thanks to all who have visited my blog during the past couple of weeks; and, special thanks to all those who have offered comments.

The latest “Leader’s List” for the time period of March 28 – April 14, 2009 was just released, and I am honored to be ranked #21 on this list. Thank You to all who have made a visit. I really appreciate all your support, and always look forward to all your comments and kind words. All are always welcome to visit.  

I hope everybody had a great Easter celebration. Also, I hope everyone is enjoying the early action of the new baseball season. The warm and hot days of summer are almost here, so we can all look forward to many great days of “Baseball” the rest of this 2009 season.

Take care, everybody, and enjoy the “Opening Day” at the new Yankee Stadium !!!

Play Ball !!!

    Welcome back Jimmy! I missed all your comments and thoughts! I’m delighted that you had a wonderful Easter and isn’t it great to have baseball to watch again. I truly hope that the Yankees have a wonderful opening at the New Stadium. If the weather in NY is like it is in Boston today it will be splendid!

    Enjoy and Take Care!!!

    So glad you’re back to blogging, Jimmy. I wish we had a better opening day to blog about, but we’ll just have to write our posts and hope for a great game tomorrow. The stadium looked absolutely gorgeous. I wish I’d been there. Maybe I would have brought the Yankees luck – or at least a better result than today’s debacle.

    Thanks for the comments. I always enjoy reading your blog, you know a lot of baseball! It’s too bad we were blasted today. The bullpen was horrible, we need a guy to pitch the 8th. Veras is struggling. I think Joba should be the set up guy. Hopefully, tomorrow’s game is a win!

    What a great game. First sucessful comeback of the season.
    Those eighth and ninth innings were nailbiters. Games like that are why I watch baseball.

    It’s good to have you back, Jimmy! I always enjoy reading your keen insights into the Yankees, and I’ve missed seeing you around the blogosphere. Too bad today’s game didn’t exactly go in your favor, but I think things will be much better tomorrow.-Erinhttp://plunking-gomez.mlblogs.com

    I remember after they started 0-2 the crisis started to show on a few Yankee faces.
    But then you guys got down here and the game were close and the result was not determined until late in the games.
    But you do need to do one thing real soon.
    If you do not get a long reliever soon, Nick Swisher will be your best Bullpen option.
    I felt bad for Wang in that game, but come on, you need a long guy for just that situation……..right?
