Yankees Make High-Profile Signings, But Payroll is Seventh in Major League Baseball

MLB Rookie of the Year Aaron Judge Joins Adidas

A little more than 24 hours before his managerial debut, Boone said he was less nervous about opening day than he used to be. Thoughts of warm summer nights at Fenway Park and can finally creep into fan's minds and hearts.

"The coolest part is that they're not all about sports, and that was so clear in one of my first meetings with them". Look for the Yankees to finish 104-58 in 2018 and enter the postseason as the clear favorites to win the World Series. The rookie managers of the Red Sox and Yankees, Alex Cora and Aaron Boone respectively, are close friends from their days as ESPN commentators. The Cleveland Indians didn't make any big splash additions this offseason, but they still have one of the best rosters in baseball.

Tanaka is coming off a mostly disappointing year in which he went 13-12 with a 4.74 ERA and a career-high 35 homers allowed. But for ex-Yankees superstar turned ESPN Sunday Night Baseball analyst Alex Rodriguez, it's even bigger than that.

In 2015 the Dodgers payroll of $270 million established a new record for Opening Day, but at the start of the 2016 season it was lowered to $234 million and in 2017 to $226 million. The 28-year old Californian is known for his Ruthian moon shots that made him a two-time Most Valuable Player with the Marlins.

Trading Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman was not what anyone could classify as an easy decision, but it was precisely the one that needed to be made and precisely the decision that the White Sox had been unable to make with David Robertson over the past few years before his trade back to NY.

The New York Yankees unveiled a neat little innovation on Monday during a media tasting event that unveiled some of the new food and drink items being sold at Yankee Stadium this season: A machine that imprints players' images onto the head of your beer. The Red Sox and Yankees are both young and immensely talented, and are nearly sure to finish one-two in the A.L. East, with the runner-up moving on as a wild card team. After obliterating National League East pitching last season with 59 home runs, Stanton has taken his talents to the American League East to attempt to do the same. But injuries have taken their toll on Boston's elder statesman. In spring training, Cora insisted players call him "Alex" or "A.C." but it will be interesting to see how a more relaxed clubhouse responds to a losing streak or the unpredictable funk of Price and Ramirez. That's the same deal in the Bronx.

Teaming up with Stanton can be both a blessing and a curse for Judge.
