"Now, what is this site about, how Joe Torre ruined pitchers' arms? Is that it?"

The start of a new era

Today is the day we've all (figuratively) circled on our calendars: Opening Day.

Hearing those two words conjures up thoughts of summer, past successes and new beginnings. Today marks a new beginning.

Joe Torre, the man who managed the last 12 Opening Days is 3,000 miles west. While I'm happy he is where he is, something just doesn't seem right about that. For the first few games, it will be strange seeing Joe Girardi in his place.

The lineup has the same players, but the starting rotation has gotten much younger. This is what many Yankee fans are most excited about. Sure, they will have their struggles this year. But knowing that the future is promising puts a smile on everyone's faces.

Hopefully the rain will hold off and hopefully Chien-Ming Wang has forgotten about what happened last October.

I'll have the game preview up soon and a liveblog will follow that, so stay tuned.

Let's go Yankees!
