Morning Bits: Soriano = Mariano?, Orioles, Ichiro, Teixeira, Gehrig

Good morning everyone and a happy Saturday to you all! The Yankees finally have a play-off opponent and it’s a very familiar AL East foe–it’s the Baltimore Orioles. The Yankees will fly down to Baltimore today and continue workouts there before tomorrow’s Game 1 of the ALDS. Here are the morning links for the day. 

— With no Mariano Rivera in the play-offs for the first time in a long time, can Rafael Soriano fill Mo’s shoes and give the Yankees victories?

— Looks like the Yankees and Orioles aren’t done yet. The Yankees start the ALDS at Camden Yards (where they had a 6-3 record in 2012) and will continue for 3* (if necessary) games in Yankee Stadium.

Ichiro Suzuki hasn’t been to the play-offs in 11 years–yes, I said 11. So to finally be able to play in a meaningful game means a lot to the ex-Mariner.

— The Yankees are looking for some Tex supportMark Teixeira support that is. Teixeira is determined to get out of his postseason rut and help the Yankees defeat the Orioles.

— A group of legislators want to investigate if Lou Gehrig’s disease is what actually killed Lou Gehrig.

  1. Can’t wait to see the roster set and who Joe picks for game 2 and 3.

  2. I don’t think it’s a no brainer either way. Kuroda has been better in YS, but it’s always good to have a lefty pitching at home.
    The deciding factor could well be that they simply keep them in their current rotation schedule.
