The Melkman delivers: a Yankee update

Melky Cabrera played a crucial role in the Yankees 3-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays in the final home opener at the current Yankee Stadium last night. He caught two fly balls, one a leaping catch, to take away extra base hits from the Jays and he hit a just-over-the-fence home run to tie the game. See, this is what happens when you put a little faith in your young talent and give them time to grow instead of trading them for the quick fix.

Other notes: A-Rod continues to produce...both important hits and runs as well as still hitting into less impressive double-plays...Joba Chamberlain threw a one-hit, scoreless eighth inning, and how adorable was he over his excitement about that? I'm very excited to see him throw this year and in seasons to come...Joe Girardi looked good back in a Yankee uniform.
