Yanks Drop Opener As CC Struggles

The Yankees kicked off their much anticipated 2009 season today in Baltimore as CC Sabathia took on Jeremy Guthrie. As I'm sure you all know, the Yankees lost 10-5. CC struggled with command of his fastball and got behind in counts a lot. This is not a good way to pitch, so he got knocked around a little. He started slow last year too, so I'm not going to worry. One positive about this game is that two of the biggest question marks for the Yankees, Jorge Posada and Hideki Matsui, each had a home run. The Yankees are off tomorrow, and go after their first win on Wednesday, as Chien-Ming Wang takes on Koji Uehara.
