Get your Yankees Opening Day coverage fix

I'm not a big fan of ESPN's all-encompassing and self-promoting approach in a lot of areas. But in the credit-where-credit is due department,  I would say any fans of the Yankees or Mets should follow the teams' daily blogs on

As for Thursday's Yankees opener in the Bronx, Andrew Marchand & Co. have all kinds of angles at this link from before, during and after the 6-3 win over the Tigers. Jeter stuck on 74 hits shy of 3,000, Jorge Posada's move to DH, the freezing fans, Mike Mussina's first pitch, Jeter and A.J. Burnett turning the page on tough 2010s. Great stuff.

Meanwhile, good friend of the blog Adam Rubin & Co. have every angle of the Mets covered and lots of them, of course, concern the Bisons. It will be even more interesting to follow the coverage this year in the wake of Terry Collins' promotion to manager. The big news from Thursday is that starter Pat Misch and infielder Luis Hernandez have both accepted assignments to the Bisons after clearing waivers. Two solid additions for the Herd.
