New, comments

Nick Swisher will be playing against the Yankees for the first time since 2008. Weird!

More steals, GGBG! (He was safe on this attempt from 7/5/2011).

The game is Progressive Field's home opener, and it will start at 4:05. The game is on YES, SportsTime Ohio, and MLB Network if you're out of the blackout range.

Here's the blurb I wrote about this game in the SBNation MLB Preview:

Don't be fooled by Kuroda's ugly numbers -- he was forced to leave his first start in the second inning shortly after taking a liner off his finger on a cold night at Yankee Stadium. Keep an eye on his control to determine his health. Ubaldo has turned into a punchline, but could the Yanks' injury-plagued lineup help him on the comeback trail after limiting Toronto's top four hitters to a weak 2-for-11 in his 2013 debut?Shameless? I'm not familiar with the word.

Anyway, it's good to see Swish again! No offense to him, but I hope he goes hitless against HIROK and the bullpen. I also hope Kuroda's finger is okay, Nunez is healthy, and no else gets crippled. That would be much preferred to the alternative, no? Crazy thought, I know.

May we never see Kuroda's statistics look like this ever again. Damn you, Shane Victorino...
