The 4 Train might very well be the hype train right now, and it's running express to 161st Street. The Yankees are currently running on all cylinders. Starting pitching, offense, and the bullpen have been nothing short of excellent. Coming back home from a very successful road trip, the Bronx Bombers continued their hot streak against the red hot Mets. Ignoring the hype of the Subway Series for a moment, it's just so refreshing to see the Yankees playing well against good teams. The Tigers were the previous best team in baseball and the Mets are the current ones. Sure, it's April and it's silly to look at the standings. Doesn't matter. The Yankees are playing good, hot teams and they are winning. Not only that, but they're scoring runs. You know, that thing they didn't do last year.CC Sabathia will take the mound this afternoon against the Mets young phenom Matt Harvey. Sabathia is coming off his best start of the year against a potent Tigers lineup. We can hope he provides the same level of skill against our cousins from Queens. Here's hoping the offense can figure out Harvey and provide Sabathia with some much needed run support. Stand clear of the closing doors, please.
Comments of the Day
This would have been a cunning plan, had Bernie not just retired.
Guess it's legit.
Also known as the opposite of what George Costanza would do.
That's a solid A from me.
Self promotion is self promoting.
I hope Vince McMahon doesn't screw him over.
Probably a few Juice emojis as well.
I still think the Power Rangers Alert Sound makes the best Text Message sound clip.
Call'd it! Well done.
Big, if true!
Oh LTL, you silly sod.
Wish someone would blog about it.
Not gonna lie, I was really happy this was blue'd so I could put it here. A classic Mega Man game boy reference is a winner in my book.
BGFC is accurate about Pineda's swag levels.
Puns. Puns galore.
Still a couple games left.
While the majority of us agree on baseball teams on Pinstripe Alley, hockey is a different matter all together.
GIF of the Day
It feels good to swag about since the Yankees are indeed hotter than hot.
Honorable Mod Mention
Waffles gets the HMM because we haven't praised her Baby Bombers recaps enough.
- How would you improve the NYC Transit System?
- How many innings does Sabathia pitch this afternoon?
