Doing Better

On opening day, Chien-Ming Wang matched his career total for wins in April. If the game hadn't been rained out, and if the results would have been the same, he would have had as many career wins in March as in April, which is odd for a guy with back-to-back 19-win seasons.

Mariano Rivera is one month ahead of last year's pace with saves. Due to a combination of the Yankees' stuggles and a few horrible games of his own, Rivera didn't save his 2nd game until May 3rd last season. He actually only had 4 saves at the start of June last season, without a DL stint. The third contributing factor was the few games the Yankees did win that the first two months last year, they were winning by more than 3 runs.
