New York Yankees-Cincinnati Reds: Grading the Supremacy

The New York Yankees beat the Cincinnati Reds by a score of 4-1. It looks to me as though CC Sabathia is ready for the season after yesterday’s performance.

A+: CC Sabathia

He didn’t pitch against the best lineup but he dominated. If you are great and you face some one inferior to you, you are supposed to dominate them. That’s what CC did.

A+: Mariano Rivera

I can’t believe how much he is dominating. He only gave up 1 hit all spring. How great can you get? He’s the Babe Ruth of relief pitchers. Better yet, he's the Mariano Rivera of relief pitchers.

A+: Mark Teixeira

He went 2-for-3 with an RBI. I keep reading how he’s going to fail as a Yankee. Of course I’m reading this from fans from other teams.

B+: Derek Jeter

The captain had a good day scoring a run and getting an RBI. The Yankees are going to have him lead off because he hits into too many double plays. That sounds like a good idea.

C-: Brett Gardner

Joe Girardi said he has an idea who he wants to start in center field. I have a feeling it’s going to be Gardner. He only got on base with a walk after three at bats but he stole a base. That has to count for something.

F: The YesNetwork

I don’t understand why they hardly show the Yankees on tv in spring training. Do they want us to pay for mlb tv? I’m not going to buy mlb tv for games that don’t count. Once the season starts, becomes useless.
