Yankees Blame Slow Start On It Being A 162-Game Season So Calm The Fuck Down

NEW YORK—After losing their first three games and needing extra innings to beat the lowly Baltimore Orioles, the 3-3 New York Yankees addressed the fears of their fans Thursday by saying they were still slated to play more than 150 games this season and everyone should really take a deep breath and relax. "Okay, Mariano Rivera isn't as young as he used to be, and our bats started out slow, but you know, it's freaking April," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "At this point I think we'll be in good shape when the Red Sox come to town on Oct. 1, thank you very much." In related news, the front office of the 4-2 Mets, who opened the season with three straight victories, cautioned fans that the team may not win another game in 2012.
