Friday the 13th: Who's superstitious?
Posted 13 April 2012 - 08:27 AM
Jorge Posada throws out the first ball before today's home opener, then Hiroki Kuroda will face Ervin Santana in what doesn't figure to be a pitcher's duel.
Kuroda allowed 12 baserunners (and 4 runs) in 5.2 innings of work against Tampa last Saturday. Santana got ripped for six runs in five innings by KC. He is 5-5 lifetime against New York with a career 5.55 ERA in 71 innings.
Yanks won the season series 5-4 from LA last year, first time that has happened since 2003.
This will be Pujols's his first appearance in the new Yankee Stadium. He played at the old park for three games in 2003 and again in the 2008 All-Star game. Pujols is off to a slow start, 4-for-18 with two doubles and a .666 OPS. He is 3-for-15 lifetime against Kuroda.
NY Post has a short sidebar today about Jeter. Scouts have clocked him at 4.20 from home to first in Baltimore and 4.16 in Tampa, on turf. League average is 4.3. "He looks great," one scout said. "He has found a natural fountain of youth."
Angels are 2-4 and last in the West. Yanks are 3-3 and thankful the Orioles are still in the league.
Somebody has to win today and someone is going to lose. It's up to the players to figure out the winner, not superstitions.

Actually the top four in the Yankee lineup today have all hit at least 3 HRs against Santana, a combined 14 in 148 ABs.

Kuroda looks impressive through 5, that walk last inning was a ridiculous call on 3-2 (PitchFX now doesn't work until after games, sadly).

Am I nuts or did he used to be Kendry Morales?
Meaning how he spells his first name? I thought it always had an 's' on the end?
Anyway, great bounce back from Kuroda. Like to see that.

His name was misspelled without the s for several years until he finally corrected people about it.
So it's a Demetress Bell situation then.
