Here's a hot take for you. When going into a series trying to win it, it's always good to win the first game of said series. The Yankees did exactly that yesterday thanks to some historic heroics from Alex Rodriguez, some average but decent starting pitching from CC Sabathia, and more stellar work from the bullpen. We still really need a nickname for our bullpen. Another good suggestion for winning this series would be for the Yankees to defeat the Red Sox this afternoon, securing said series victory before Sunday's late night game. We should all root for this.

Jorge Mateo is fast.
Facial hair talks are always a topic in the magical land of pinstripes.
Joba is scary.
We have a pulse.
Maybe this is why Phil Hughes blocked us on Twitter.
Rookies and major league players all achieve instead sucknicity when they put on a Red Sox uniform. That's just science.
John Sterling called this pretty well actually.
So many things about this are appropriate.

Feel free to use this as an open thread. Nathan Eovaldi will take the mound for the Yankees this afternoon. His last outing against the Mets was less than stellar. Just like CC, let us hope he returns to how he pitched against the Tigers. Oh, and let us also hope the offense gives him some run support like they did against the Mets.
