Oh, yeah, and the Yanks take on the Texas Rangers. First time this season, first time since losing to the Rangers last October in the ALCS.
Cliff has the preview. We make the noise.
Let’s Go Yank-ees!

 Hmm..looks like I'm Freddy-no-Friends on this game thread..oh well, Go Go Team! I hate Texas!
 Sorry, I politely disagree.
Switched over from MLBN, where it appears that Javy Vazquez can't handle the pressure of pitching for the Marlins.
Beltre could get 400+ home runs..is he a HOFer? With the super D..not too many 3B in the hall for some reason.
any opinions on the AGon signing....
7/$154m on the heels of the Crawford 7/$142m signing?
 Good for him
 Genius moves! Best front office in baseball! They really know what they're doing, always a step ahead of the competition!
 Poor Boston that they're forced to spend so much in order to remain competitive? Baltimore and Texas don't stand a chance? Screw KC? Let me know if I come close... Oh, hi guys! Is it me or does Alex look younger after shedding the extra bulk?
Rachel Robinson still looks pretty good.
 Yo Chyll, long time buddy! How you doing? Busy here in Atomic City, will be in touch soon with an update.
Boston..if they win the WS this year will we see a plethora of articles about "buying the championship" like when Yanks signed CC and Teix? Doubt it..
Who is Lance Pendleton? Is that his real name?? Sounds like an astronaut.
Jeez, Lance looks like Biff Tannen...
Wow, what's happening in NYC tonight that no one showed up for the game thread? Oh well, time for some espresso and bagels here..
Go Go Curtis!
 Whattup Jazz! Looking fwd to it.
Not liking this SS/Crappy Nova is alternating with.
Well, that was a break...
I think we should give Jeter 1/2 of a BH for hitting a decent fly ball.
I dunno, it's the first nice Friday we've had this year, so most we're probably taking advantage of it. Me, I'm at Uncle Woodrow's, but I'm gonna go back home soon. I'm diggin' the new place...
I'm in,I'm out. I'm not even watching the game, came here to see what was happening. thanks for nothing hahaha! Hey-o I got a free ticket to Sunday's game, whooo!
I'm here too, sort of. Its so strange to see everyone wearing 42. Reasonably crisp game so far. Hopefully the Yanks get ahead . . .
Bad News Bears inning from the Yankees here.
Nova and Roberston have been yanking far too many pitches, as if they're overthrowing.
None of this is making Larry Lar look too good right now, but it's early and a mixed bag. The bullpen's been lights out more often than not, and AJ has nowhere to go but up. Somebody's gotta take Nova under his wing...
No ponch runner for JorgePo?
So I was gonna post in this thread to ask why Jeter is wearing #42, but apparently everyone is wearing #42 and I am no longer alarmed... Jackie Robinson day? Why today?
Logan..sigh...ok, time for chores and podcasts. WIll check in later to see if the komeback kids make an appearance tonight.
 Today's the anniversary of Jackie Robinson's MLB debut.
Oy, not a great game. But nice that this kid--who doesn't look like much--retired the first six guys in his career. 5 dps, though...makes for a rotten evening.
 I wonder if they'll put him on the DL with a dead arm? I don't think he's broken 90 :-)
Meanwhile, Ace Jenks gives up 4 in 1/3 IP. J’s up over Sox 7-3.
Rangers do Texas Two-Out on Yanks ...
Boos in Fenway as the Blue Jays are running free on the bases, 4 runs in the 7th off Bobby Jenks. Toronto look like a good team..
This Yankee game incredibly boring..6 double plays!
Six double plays. Oy.
Alex maybe watching that one.
Eh, he wasn't going to get a triple anyhow.
Alex should have stopped at 1B to set up the 7th DP
the dp is out of the equation!
KEEP HOPE ALIVE!
Let's go JORGE!
Pat Burrell has 4 hits this year .... all solo homers.
I hate Michael Kay.
Ok here we go . . . C'mon Posada!
Wow, threw him a breaking ball. Ballsie.
Martin . . . How bout a homer?
Or not. At least they made it exciting for a little bit.
How soon until there are questions about Nova's ability to pitch more than 4 innings?
 There are already questions..
 The questions have been there since last season.
I missed most of the game. Did we start the runners on any of the 475 double plays, or do we, as a team, still not run plays? I did see what I'm sure was fully intended to be a pinch stand there at the end, but Martin swung at the first pitch.
