If I was excited about our new Yankee before, I’m super excited about him after the first two games of the 2016 season. Wow. What a way to make friends in New York. In last night’s Janer, the Yanks beat the Astros 16-6 and Castro was a good reason. Pineda clearly has work to do on his control (or maybe it was the cold weather), but there was nothing wrong with the bats. Even old warhorse Carlos Beltran was a beast at the plate.
It wasn’t the most tidy of games, but beating a contender for the pennant and beyond is always great. I was a happy fan last night.
