"I wasn't disappointed in it," said Mussina, who allowed four runs (three earned) in 5 2/3 innings. "It felt good throwing the baseball. I just made some mistakes, and they took advantage of it. If I have that stuff 30 times, I'll be fine."

He just made some mistakes??? That's all??? I think he should just record himself saying: "I just made some mistakes" over and over. This way he can skip the postgame show everytime and we can just play that tape over and over.
Yanks Fans caught stealing bunting flags. We got the exclusive security camara picture of the suspect.Submitted by mike on Thu, 04/03/2008 - 02:50.
NEW YORK -- Two Yankees fans were caught trying to take home a piece of the last opener at the stadium.
Police said that witnesses reported seeing 41-year-old John Bunjaporte and 39-year-old Keith O'Rourke trying to remove screws from the decorative bunting during Tuesday's Opening Day game against the Toronto Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium.
The red, white and blue flag-like bunting usually is draped throughout the stadium on Opening Day and during the playoffs.
This was a big surprise. I was was under the impression that Moose wanted to start off the season terrible. Shocker. Speaking of terrible, here is a look at some of Moose's little league performances from last year. You might want to sit down before reading these outings.
NEW YORK—Right after the final out, Mariano Rivera grabbed the ball and handed it to his new manager. Here you go, Joe, a souvenir to treasure.
Last opener at the old place, first win for Joe Girardi. Just how the Babe would have wanted it.
Chien-Ming Wang stymied the Toronto Blue Jays for seven innings, making Girardi a winner in his rain-delayed debut as Yankees manager and sending New York to a record-setting 3-2 victory Tuesday night.
"I know he really wanted to win this game," Derek Jeter said. "I'm happy for him."
Back in 1923, Babe Ruth homered in front of 74,200 fans on the day Yankee Stadium opened. This time, it was Melky Cabrera's shot that tied it for New York, and the 84th opener at this storied ballpark ended like so many that came before: with a win by the home team.
"It was a big night," Jason Giambi said. "This one is huge."

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Hideki Matsui chuckled Thursday while recounting his big week. Yes, the Yankees slugger really did get married and win a bet with teammates Derek Jeter and Bobby Abreu at the same time.
Matsui made the wager at the start of spring training about who would wed first, then flew to New York on his off day Wednesday to get married.
Matsui said Jeter, who claimed not to have a girlfriend, has one year to get married to win the bet. Yankees outfielder Bobby Abreu, who said he has a girlfriend, has six months to win the bet.
Since Matsui said he knew six months ago he was going to get married, he was able to pull a fast one on his teammates, who both said Thursday they would play off their losses immediately
As promised, Jose Canseco included Alex Rodriguez The A-Rod-Gamble in his new book "Vindicated," but the steroid snitch's charges against A-Rod are flimsy at best, according to a freelance writer who saw an advance copy of the book.
Joe Lavin, a Boston-based freelance writer, found a copy of the book, which is due out Tuesday, in a Cambridge, Mass., bookstore and posted excerpts on his web site.
According to Lavin, Canseco wrote he "introduced Alex to a known supplier of steroids."
A group of reporters approached Rodriguez in Tampa, Fla., today and informed him of Canseco's allegations.

The Yankees say they will not be buying Yankee Stadium from the city, which means they won't be selling off dirt, urinals, and garbage cans for outrageous prices.
This makes me very upset. A CD of mine just came due and I was planning on picking up a new urinal and bag of dirt. I work hard to purchase a few nice items and all of a sudden, someone throws a wrench in my plans. I guess my search for a good urinal will go on. I will not rest until I can find one.
Speaking of garbage, Shea Stadium might be for sale.
