The offseason is far from finished, but Spring Training is now one month away, and there is a more than zero percent chance that the New York Yankees have completed their major offseason transactions. The team you start the season with is never the team you end the season with, but it is about time we project the opening day lineup if the season were to hypothetically start tomorrow. With Didi Gregorius out and Manny Machado and Bryce Harper seemingly out of the picture, who would be on that Opening Day 25-man crew? This is a long blog, so I'm...

Let me rephrase my title of this blog: "We lost a series at home to the Rays - FUCKKKKK!" I don't really like to curse until I get into the actual blog, itself. Not trying to totally corrupt America's youth. Doing a good deed, ya know? Anyways, we lost 3-1. Unreal.  Tanaka was not bad at all, but, once again, we couldn't mount any sort of offense. His stat line was as follows: 6 IP,  9 hits, 2 ER, 0 walks, 6 Ks. He gave up 2 runs in the first inning, which is a classic move by Masahiro Tanaka. Normally,...
