Daily Yankees Predictions 4/17/14: Road Trip

The Yankees swept the Cubs in a day-night doubleheader. Now they begin a seven game road trip to visit some division rivals. First stop, St. Petersburg and the Tampa Bay Rays. Did anyone win either Daily Prediction from yesterday's two games?

The Day of Expectancy went off without a hitch. Masahiro Tanaka pitched an absolute, 2 soft bunt hit, 10 strikeout gem and Michael Pineda followed up with 6 innings of shut out baseball as well. You really cannot ask for much more than that from your two young, cost controlled, fourth and fifth starters. Well, you could ask for more, but then you'd be kind of a jerk! Doubleheader Daily Prediction answers.

The Aardvarks were up late into the night crunching all the hard numbers for both games and it looks like the Yankees were the only winners yesterday. Once again, GriffMan, whose new nickname might be Ties, has not only tied with Andrew in Game 1 with 3,000 points, but has also tied with Waffles in Game 2 with 2,000 points. However, since his daily total is 5,000 points, I suppose he does deserve the victory for the full Day of Expectancy. I just thought tying twice was funny.

If you could move the Tampa Bay Rays to a new location, where would it be and what would you call the team?

What is your favorite form of Fries? (Crinkle Cut, Waffle, Curly, Shoestring, Steak, etc.)

Road Trip: If you could get in a car and drive anywhere you wanted to go, where would you go?

Is your signature clean, proper, and actually looks like your name or just some seizure-ish scribbles?

The Yankees are in St. Petersburg to play the Tampa Bay Rays for four game. Ugh. Four games in the dump that is Tropicana Field. I probably do rag on that stadium way too much, but I cannot help it. It's an absolute eyesore, both externally and internally, and we have to play there way too many games during the year. I actually feel bad for Rays fans. Apparently there are some new renovations to make the walk around better. Yay, I guess. All I know is that I cannot wait for the Yankees to be out of there.

You swept the Cubs. Sweep the Rays next. Let it begin with you, CC Sabathia.
