Breaking news! Luis Severino is good at baseball, Starlin Castro is not Stephen Drew, and Rob Refsnyder can hit! See? I said there would be much more hard-hitting analysis. And you probably didn't believe me. Hmph. Shame on you. You know what, I'll just let everyone else do the talking for me now. See how you feel about that.

If only someone said he's good at baseball...
Someone also said he's not Drew...
..Now will you listen to my ground breaking analysis?!
So the Yankees beat the Pirates 7-2 yesterday, but unfortunately Slade Heathcott did not get in on the action.
Why was Slade Heathcott scratched from today's lineup? "He missed the bus," Joe Girardi said.— Bryan Hoch (@BryanHoch) March 17, 2016
Anyone else I might have just brushed it off, but for some reason this made me laugh and I kind of find it adorable.

Song of the Day
Saints Go Marching In by Louis Armstrong
It's March Madness Week on Pinstripe Alley. Up until now I had been focusing on the "Madness" aspect of things, so like I said I would, today I wanted to address the "March" of it all. If you don't see the connection, then I've got nothing for you. As always please link us your song of the day.
Feel free to use this as your open thread for tonight's game. The Yankees will host the Orioles tonight at 6:35pm. The Yankees will send veteran CC Sabathia to the mound against Miguel Gonzalez. Tonight's game will be available on YES, MLB.tv, and WFAN.
