Tanaka Day has finally come and gone, and it did not disappoint. Masahiro Tanaka, one of the most exciting reasons to be a Yankee fan this year, struggled a bit in the beginning before settling down and treating us to some sweet, sweet splitters and strikeouts. I will be attending his start in Yankee stadium on Wednesday. Hopefully. I won't lie, I check the weather for that Wednesday every day. So far, so good. Onto the Daily Prediction results from yesterday.

After crunching the numbers in the Advanced Analytic Re-Distributing Volatile Awesome Righteous Kalculator 5000, or AARDVARK 5000 for short, the Aaron's have concluded that we have another winner. HighFlyers28 scored 3,000 points yesterday by correctly answering the number of innings, total number of hits, and home run question. While he is the winner for Friday, Michael Brown still has the record for the most points at once with 4,000. Can you defeat this charlatan and claim victory? Here's your chance!

This afternoon is Pineda Day. Pineday? Whatever you call it, having the Yankees' three young starters all begin the season strong would definitely provide a lot of hope for the future. As exciting as Tanaka Day was for Yankee fans yesterday, Pineda's pinstripe performance could possibly perk our positive predictions. We've waited two years to see what Michael Pineda can do. Let's hope he does not disappoint.
