An un-Holy April road schedule


After opening the season with seven home games, the Yanks embark on a killer April road schedule. Over the subsequent three weeks, they will play 18 of 20 games on the road. With only two days off in April this year, it’s going to be a grueling month on the road, and the main culprit behind the delays is, according to Ed Price, the Pope and his April 20th Yankee Stadium mass. Got that, Benedict? It’s your fault the Yanks are on the road; how about we get something in return? I’ll take wins.

    the Pope must be a Red Sox fan!!

    Can we all just agree the ST results/stats mean NOTHING. There are cases when a pitcher will throw the same pitch for the entire outing, yesterday we get news reports about Joba coming apart today it Wang…let’s all just wait until they count before jumping ship like Met fans do…

    BTW Pope Benedict looks like a vampire I for one wouldn’t upset him i think he is hiding bat wings under those flowing robes…

  5. AlexCT says:

    Isn’t it an advantage to play so many game on the road early in the season? The team will bond on the road and it means there are that fewer road games later in the year when fatigue becomes more of a factor.

    It could help the team down the road(no pun intended).It should give us an instant test of how the season goes,and what needs to be tweaked.
