From Sweet Sounds In CF To Stench in The Bullpen

Opening Day at the new Yankee Stadium started off so sweet and clear, to borrow from an old Carpenters song. John Fogerty walked in from centerfield playing the terrific song he wrote about that part of the outfield. Bernie Williams strolled in from his old position, too, to play his beautiful new rendition of "Take Me Out To The Ballgame," which I'm predicting will come to be known as his signature song. Ah, so sweet and clear.

By the end of the day, however, there was nothing but a foul stench, and it came directly from the bullpen. What was a close, winnable game for the Yankees turned into a lost cause when the pen gave up 9 runs in the 7th inning. Simply awful. I don't even want to think about it. I'd rather just forget about it, or better yet, listen to Bernie play his signature song again. Listen to it yourself by clicking here.
