The Yanks opened up baseball season at home yesterday afternoon, going against their rivals, the Boston Red Sox. Unfortunately, they failed to bring a win home to the sellout crowd of 49,514. They lost 8-2.
It may be sort of understandable, as they were without Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira and Curtis Granderson.
“We have 161 more to go,” Kevin Youkilis said. “As a Major League Baseball player, there are a lot of games you just throw out the window. You just have to keep working hard, try to get better every day. That’s what we’re going to do.”
