Happy New Year from Masahiro Tanaka and his adorable puppy
An American prophet once observed that it's been, "A long December and there's reason to believe, maybe this year will be better than the last."
... and that's especially true when you wake up on Jan. 1 to find a picture of Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka and his adorable puppy wishing you a happy 2015.

Tanaka's message translates to "akeome," a Japanese New Year's greeting. (And the cute puppy certainly enhances the message.)
