Opening Day Game Thread: New York Yankees vs. Houston Astros 4/4


Ladies and gentleman we have arrived! We as Yankees fans made it through another October and November without our team in it and we made it through a grueling and frustrating offseason where New York acquired two big names in Starlin Castro and Aroldis Chapman but still didn’t sign a single MLB free agent. New York endured injuries this spring and disappointment from their top prospects but all that and $27 will get you a two-foot-long cheesesteak at Yankee Stadium today because dammit, it’s Opening Day!

The New York Yankees and the Houston Astros face off today in a rematch of the American League Wild Card Playoff game from 2015 with Masahiro Tanaka and Dallas Keuchel taking the mound for their respective teams. The Astros and Keuchel got the better of New York in that game and in most games the lefty ace pitched in against New York last season and the Yankees will look to turn that around today to get their 2016 season off on the right foot.

The game will be played at 1:05 pm ET and can be seen on ESPN, YES Network and can be heard on the radio with WFAN. Go Yankees!
