It is time. It's been a long offseason, but here we are. We've heard from the medical experts. We've seen the concerns from the Yankees fanbase. The wait is now over. Masahiro Tanaka, the Yankees most exciting pitcher, takes the mound in tonight's spring training game. All eyes will be glued to the game for this one. We'll see if the medical experts were right or if panicked fan once again reigns supreme. Let us ultimately hope for the best.
Comments of the Day
That's just, like, Reggie's opinion, man!
Congrats to Zack on his internship. Also, congrats to PSA for having a place to stay when we go to watch the Riverdogs.
Reggie is definitely the hot topic yesterday.
I think Pinstripe Alley would be a better site if we never speak of this again.
Pungineering at its finest right here.
Sucks that he got injured, yes. However, Chris Capuano is no Masahiro Tanaka.

Am I awake or do I dream? Tanaka's back so it would seem. Hopefully his injury's gone away. As always, please link us your Song of the Day.
