Well, the Yankees won a nail-bitter yesterday, but what I'm really happy about is that Ivan Nova, the rookie who had only one Major League start before the game.

Of all the times for A.J. Burnett to throw a complete game and only giving up one stinking run, of all the times the Yankees get two hits, of all the times the Yankees get shut out by a pitcher they've never seen before (again), it happens today. It wasn't A.J.'s fault though; Burnett looked like the pitcher the Yankees signed for that big contract and paid $82.5 million to him. He had 6 strikeouts with three walks as well as 3 double plays behind him. Everything was effective for A.J., he had both his fastball, and more importantly, his curve ball working. He made the Royals batters look silly.
The Yankees bats must have been out relaxing at the pool or something else, because all they...
