The Yankees were just shut out for the second game in a row. Yesterday the Pirates were also shutout for the second game in a row. The Yankees’ opening day player salaries total $206 million, the Pirates’ total $35 million.
Anything can happen over a single game, or a few games, to any team, anywhere, at any time. One of the many things that make baseball so great.
