Due to the inclement weather on Monday, the Yankees smartly postponed their season opener against the Houston Astros til Tuesday at 1:05 p.m. It was the right decision, in fact the Yankees made the announcement around 8:00 this morning, which was a classy move. Instead of having 50,000 people travel to the Stadium and sit in rain for no reason, might as well postpone it.
The Game will be a rematch of last Fall's Wild Card game between the Yankees and Astros with the same pitching matchup, Masahiro Tanaka and Dallas Keuchel. Keuchel dominated the Yankees last season in the playoffs, and is one of the American League's top starters. Tanaka is one of many Yankees out to prove that he is more than an aging player who gets injured too often.
