Watch Giancarlo Stanton Crush Home Run In First At-Bat With Yankees

Brett Gardner already was on base on a botched liner by longtime NY outfielder Curtis Granderson, and Stanton quickly showed what a nightmare he and Aaron Judge figure to present to opposing pitchers if Boone continues to stack them - as well as Gary Sanchez - in the lineup, at least against left-handed pitching.

"We can't wait", said Judge, the 2017 AL Rookie of the Year. You can expect to see a lot of goose eggs in innings 7-8-9 from opposing lineups as new skipper Aaron Boone has Dellin Betances, David Robertson, Chasen Shreve and Tommy Kahnle all at his disposal.

As much as it's not always an easy sell to convince athletes to make the jaunt up to Bristol, Judge was sufficiently enthused about the "This Is SportsCenter" gig that he brought his parents to the shoot, says Wanda Young, ESPN senior VP, marketing and consumer engagement. "Then override that & set a higher one", reads one of Stanton's Instagram captions. Boone experimented with it once in Spring Training but chose to stick with Gardner at the top of the lineup. New manager Aaron Boone is expected to use the outfielder as a designated hitter - something he couldn't do with the Marlins - and may schedule more days off to keep him fresh for the postseason. "This seems big to me", said Yankees pitcher Sonny Gray, acquired from the Athletics last summer.

Stanton is an eight-year veteran who has never hit fewer than 20 homers in a season.

The man was taken to a Pottsville hospital by Schuylkill EMS for evaluation and police said his vehicle was towed from the scene. Cops say the no-goodniks approached the man sitting in his vehicle between Ridge Boulevard and Third Avenue around 6:30 pm.

Baseball is back, and so are the Yankees!

Yes, those "images" include players' faces, as the stadium demonstrated Monday during a media event, where it served beers from Blue Point Brewery with the likes of Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez and others etched into the foam. The Yankees also have Tommy Kahnle, who would be the 8th inning setup man on most teams but is a middle reliever in New York's deep bullpen. While Severino acknowledged he felt butterflies, he said he expects to be more comfortable after making four postseason starts last October. "So I think Yankee fans are holding their breath right now".

The Yankees have the third shortest odds to win the World Series behind the Astros and the Dodgers.

Considering that A-Rod play on the 2009 World Series championship team in the Bronx, it's a huge claim and shows how good this team can be. Luis Severino pitched like he deserved the Opening Day assignment.
