I've said it before and I'll say it again...knuckleball pitchers are evil. Meanwhile, Michael Pineda was fantastic in his long, long awaited Yankee debut. Sorry Mariners, but the YANKEES KNEW and all that rabble. Speaking of people who knew, let's check the results of yesterday's Daily Predictions.

The Aardvarks worked until the dead of night after binge drinking on math and bourbon in order to hammer out the results. Sadly, there is no one winner. Just a six-way tie between Tanya, Andrew, david d, long time listener, nyyankeesfan28, and Blanky. Each answered three questions correctly. Since Wrestlemania 30 is later on tonight, the only way to settle this is with a bake off. Whomever makes Greg Kirkland the best brownies gets the victory. Until then, today's Daily Predictions and Fun Questions.

Starting Monday, the Daily Predictions questions might shake up a bit. Also on a personal fun note, I saw Captain America: The Winter Soldier last night. Excellent, excellent movie. I was thinking of writing a brief review of it for the PSA community, but first I wanted to bring the matter up with the very same PSA community I just mentioned.
Unlike previous management just shoving such things down your throat without asking, I would like everyone's opinion on this. As we all continue to come together during the season, would movie, TV show, music reviews be something you'd like to see on this site? Nothing front page wise, since this is Yankees blog first and foremost, but perhaps a Fanpost or using this type of Open Thread. Or would you prefer reading that kind of thing elsewhere and just sticking with the Daily Predictions and Yankees coverage? Please let us know.
More importantly, let's salvage this series and this six game road trip. Let's Go Yankees.
