For the first time since July, I am happy to announce that today is Masahiro Tanaka Day, but I can't say it with much confidence like I have done in the past. If I could summarize Tanaka's first start since coming off the disabled list, it would be this; with the reward, there are risks, and ...

Mark+Teixeira+New+York+Yankees+v+Tampa+Bay+69EBR9KvNQll

Will McCann’s production last this time?

Brian+McCann+Cincinnati+Reds+v+New+York+Yankees+mHaocVRJZDYl
