The Yankees are once again playing baseball. It's only spring training baseball, but it's baseball nonetheless. Yesterday, the Yankees defeated the Tigers 10-9 in a pitching duel of epic and nonexistent proportions. Yankee fans got to see Luis Severino take the mound, as well as see new Yankees Aaron Hicks and Starlin Castro make their pinstripe debut. While Hicks had his ups and downs, Castro wasted no time in making us excited about his not-Stephen Drew qualities. It's only been one game, but I think we're all pretty happy about the "Un-Drewening," the "De-Drewment," or whatever you want to call it. Speaking of first impressions, Jorge Mateo is fast. Really fast. See the GIF of the Day below.

Shame on you, Prof. Mahbles. Also, good job!

Really really really fast. Seriously, he jogged to first cause he thought it was a home run and he still made it an easy triple. I could watch this for days.
Honorable Mod Mention
Both Harlan and Andrew win the HMM for reminding us that the Tigers' bullpen hasn't been good for a while and that it probably still needs work.
- Favorite moment of the game yesterday?
- Which player will hit the first home run for the Yankees?
Song of the Day
Route 10 by Shota Kageyama
It's PokeWeek on Pinstripe Alley. This is the Super Smash Bros. remix of Route 10 from Pokemon Black/White and it's one of my favorite remixes in the Smash Bros. series. So relaxing and a really great melody. As always, please link us your song of the day.
Feel free to use this as your open thread for today's game. The Yankees will take on the Phillies. Sadly, this game will not be broadcast in any way except for Gameday. Ivan Nova will face off against Adam Morgan. Alex Rodriguez, absent in yesterday's game, is suppose to play this afternoon.go yankees go baseball
