The Yankees won last night's game against the Seattle Mariners behind the stellar defense of the outfield, the frustrating but timely hitting of the offense, and the "hey, he only gave up one run" heart stopping pitching of Vidal Nuno. Tonight, the Yanks will go for two wins in a row and the series victory tonight. They will send pitching sensation Masahiro Tanaka to the hill to face off against Chris Young of the M's.
In exciting bullpen news, Shawn Kelley has rejoined the Yankees in Seattle after his stint on the DL. Matt Daley has been optioned to Triple-A to make room for Kelley. Also, former Yankee long man and (shudders) 2013 spot starter David Huff has rejoined the team. The Yankees acquired him from the Giants for sunshine, lollipops, and cash. Wade LeBlanc has been DFA'd in order to make room for him. Ex. Citing.
