Yanks First Homestand…

Even Ramiro Pena had two RBI's on Sunday

I had the pleasure of attending three games of the first Yankee homestand this past week and much to my surprise the Yankees, basically started the season where they left off…running their opponents off the field. The Yankees are notoriously slow starters in the month of April. If the team finishes the month at .500 you figure that is about average, well the 2010 bombers are currently 9 and 3 and quite simply look..GREAT. With the exception of TEX and Javier Vazquez, each player is contributing and CC, Posada and Cano are off to blazing starts. Even the Yankee elder Andy Pettitte is in top form.

Its also worth mentioning the Yankees have hardly had the easiest schedule to start the 2010 campaign. They have won series against The Red Sox,  The Tampa Bay Rays, The Angels and the Rangers. All these teams are mentioned as potential playoff contenders and the Yanks have handled them with ease, in fact this is the first time since 1926 that the franchise has won its first four series of the season….Things are looking good right now in the Yankee Universe!

But the Yankees now travel out west where they face the surprising upstart Oakland A’s (who are also off to a hot start) Then the team will visit Anaheim which is never fun.

I am not raising the AL east flag just yet, but its nice to sit atop the division this early and even nicer to see the SOX 5 games out of first!!!

Lets keep this going!!

Read what the NY times has to say about the Yanks great start.

Oh Dr. Dre….How could you???

I love Dr. Dre, always have. Maybe the best hip-hop producer of all time. But after Sundays Yankees vs. Red Sox game that kicked off the 2010 campaign he dropped more than a few notches in my book.

Much to my chagrin I see the one and only Chronic King sporting a RED SOX JERSEY….are you kidding me?

Now of course later I found out that Dre was simply pumping his new c0-branded beats by Dre. Headphones…. but that is no excuse.

The rapper/super producer showed up at Fenway Park to promote the Red Sox Beats by Dr. Dre headphones from Monster. The officially licensed Red Sox Beats are the latest version of Dr. Dre’s well-received headphones. Dr. Dre donned a Red Sox jersey and took a little batting practice in the historic baseball park.

The Red Sox are the first officially licensed professional sports team to have a set of Beats. Why does a baseball team needs branded headphones? I’m not sure but the Red Sox fans are some of the most devoted you’ll find anywhere so there is likely a market for these. The Red Sox Beats come with a carrying case, cables and an adapter and sell for $400.

Now Dre, I will be first on-line to buy the much-anticipated DETOX album whenever it drops, but you would have to pay me to wear those headphones….Call me when the WORLD CHAMPION NEW YORK YANKEE version drops.
