Major League Baseball heads off Yankees' attempt to put players' images on beer foam

Of course, Stanton homering in his first at-bat in pinstripes means there was no time wasted in learning what John Sterling's home run call for him would be.

Thursday afternoon, the New York Yankees and prized offseason pickup Giancarlo Stanton open the 2018 season in Toronto against the Blue Jays (GameTracker). "At certain stations at Yankee Stadium they have a machine that will allow you to put the Yankees players' faces on the beer".

The Yankees begin their 2018 campaign against familiar division foe Blue Jays in Toronto.

Late in camp, of course, Bird started feeling pain in the same right foot that needed surgery last season, though in a different area. When the Yankees gave up Starlin Castro and a couple of prospects for Stanton in an off-season deal, it was to push through to the World Series and take advantage of a young lineup that's progressing faster than expected. NY acquired Brandon Drury from Arizona to play third base and signed free-agent infielder Neil Walker.

Stanton came over the Yankees from the Miami Marlins in a December trade and adds another big bat to a stacked Yankees lineup. For the first time I can remember Major League Baseball opening with with a full slate of 15 games (In year's past it was a staggered opening with several games on Opening Day, and several teams opening the following day). "I think having a ring with a "NY" on it means more than any of the other ones out there". "It's different that way". It may not feel or look like spring in these parts but Chris Sale will indeed take the mound Thursday afternoon for the Red Sox at Tampa Bay. Neil Walker will also see time at first, depending on matchups.

Despite a slump after the All-Star break - which he refuses to blame on injury - Judge nevertheless slashed at.270.402/.589 while hitting a rookie-record 56 home runs along with 124 RBI.

Ecuador suspends Julian Assange's outside communication
Assange's internet access was also interrupted in 2016 after a WikiLeaks dump targeting Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign. Meanwhile, there's still an arrest warrant for him in Britain for jumping bail.

Stanton says his advice for his new teammate is simple.

"I would say not try to be better than he was previous year". "Just build off (last season), trust yourself, trust your preparation and know you're going to do well".

Will Giancarlo Stanton win back-to-back MVP awards during his first season in the Bronx?

The third-year player racked up more rookie-season home runs than any other player in Major League Baseball history.

While the expectations are high, the Yankees go into Opening Day not quite as deep one through nine as they anticipate to be during the bulk of the season.

It's all too human to let a sense of your own fallibility and misguided loyalty to a player you signed keep you from admitting what other people may plainly see, but it's also what can hold back a rebuild from gaining speed, tethering a team to the past just as they're attempting to escape the gravity of unmet expectations.
