    Steinbrenner Names Johnny Damon As New Yankee Scapegoat (The Onion)

    A little tongue in cheek humor to kick off the new season.

    http://www.theonion.com/content/node/46897

    All kidding aside, I'm amped about the fresh season and another year of NYYF baseball threads.

    Edit: And a quick heads up... a banner or two may be NSFW.
