Seems like a good while ago now that I was blogging about the Yankees’ World Series win over Philadelphia, but suddenly, baseball is back and the Yankees got off to their customarily sluggish start with a 7-9 loss to the Red Sox at Fenway. Oh well, there’s another 160-0dd games to put things right. Worth noting that two of the veteran principals from last year’s WS victory have been moved on…neither Hideki Matsui nor Johnny Damon will be wearing pinstripes this year with Damon in Detroit and Matsui in Anaheim. The Yanks’ main off-season acquisition is probably centre-fielder Curtis Granderson, who has joined from Detroit and who announced his first Yankees at-bat with a 455-foot home run at Fenway. The first of many, I hope…
