Yesterday was both a good day and a bad day for the Yankees. It was good because pitchers and catchers officially reported and the season finally went from "off" to "on." It was bad because the Yankees have employ the bold strategy of angering their fans. I have many thoughts on this and everything Yankee COO Lonn Trost said yesterday, but I'll let Matt Provenzano handle this. See what I mean? Rough day. I'll focus on the good stuff here though:

I'm pumped! Now just a little while longer until Spring Training games begin. Until then, I'll just watch Eovaldi pitch a few hundred times..
