    Jorge Posada will throw the ceremonial first pitch tomorrow, but the first pitch that matters will belong to Hiroki Kuroda. In his first season with the Yankees, Kuroda will be on the mound for the home opener.

    “It’s definitely an honor,” he said. “Because of that, I really have to do the best I can. I think I will.”

    Kuroda was not sharp in his debut. He walked four, gave up eight hits and looked little like the steady, reliable veteran the Yankees were expecting when they gave him a $10-million deal. Joe Girardi has wondered whether Kuroda was trying to do too much.

    “Obviously a lot (needs to change),” Kuroda said. “There are a lot of things that I won’t know until the day I pitch. It depends on how I feel that day after the bullpen. I have to make adjustments depending on the type of pitches I have that day. I really can’t tell you until the day that I start. … It doesn’t really matter where I pitch, it matters how I feel that day.”

    Here are the pitching matchups for the Angels series.

    Im worried about Kuroda. I hope he looks sharp tomorrow because he was pitching in a dome in St Pete and it may be cold in New York so his command should suffer...

    Santana seems a little wild right now...single by Martin, followed by a passed ball and wild pitch....Martin on 3rd...then he walks Gardner.

    Hope this isn't a recurring theme this season...Man on 3rd....NO OUTS....cannot score him....Jeter with a groundout to SS and Granderson strikes out swinging...

    Yankees have had big 1st innings, followed by a few innings of nothingness for a few games now. So that was actually a good sign.

    it's only a matter of time before Pujols starts exploding...hopefully the Yanks can keep him to singles...

    That HR by A-Rod tied him for 5th All-time on the HR list with 630...he also tied Ken Griffey, Jr. in hits at #48

    double play by Yanks ends the Halo threat in the 4th.
