Valentine's Day is only a couple of days away. Soon, the month of February will give us the most loving, most caring, most romantic gift of all. Of course, I'm talking about baseball. I mean, is there anything more romantic than baseball? Okay okay, it's just pitchers and catchers reporting for duty. Then, it's just Spring Training. The true romance begins in April. This is mere courtship. A small tease for what is to come about later on. Yankee baseball will always be our Valentine!
With pitchers and catchers reporting in less than a week, two of the Yankees' pitchers are in the news. Newsday has an article on CC Sabathia regarding his road to recovery and it is an encouraging read. I'm sure everyone here is rooting for Sabathia in every possible way. Meanwhile, the Wall St. Journal has an article on Masahiro Tanaka and his own recovery and desire to have a better season than his first two seasons in pinstripes. There is also a photo of Tanaka hanging out with young pitchers of his former Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles team. They are wearing Team Masahiro t-shirts. I want one.
Comments of the Day
No COTDs yesterday. It was a pretty light day.
GIF of the Day
This is still one of the sexiest pitches ever.
Honorable Mod Mention
Miranda wins the HMM for her topic on Bernie Williams. Admittedly, a Bernie topic is almost a guaranteed HMM award from me.
- The Yankees released their promo schedule. Which promo day excites you the most?
- If you could add a Yankee promotional day to that schedule, what would you add?
Song of the Day
Let's Groove by Earth, Wind, and Fire
It's Earth, Wind, and Fire week on Pinstripe Alley. This is definitely one of their more famous songs, and one of their best. So great to dance or drive to. As always, please link us your song of the day.
Feel free to use this as your open thread for the day. Yankees Mason Jar Night intrigues me.
