Social media explodes as Giancarlo Stanton makes Yankees debut with a bang

  • Red Sox outfielder J.D. Martinez

"It's still the same", Judge said.

"I'm confident that will develop and hopefully become something that both of those guys add to their game and will help their game". He told me the whole scenario was "surreal" when we chatted briefly three hours before the first pitch.

In theory, it sounds like a good plan. They combined to go deep 111 times last season - only four fewer than the famed M & M Boys (Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle) had accumulated in 1961* - with the reigning NL MVP out-clubbing the 2017 AL Rookie of the Year and MVP runner-up by a 59-52 count.

But it's only the first of 162 games, so there is still plenty of time for redemption.

Yes, it's really Opening Day. Stanton, though, apparently decided he would rather not end up on the back page of the New York Post with an all-caps "GIANCAR-BLOWS" headline.

How'd his first at bat go?

I was born and brought up here, lived for major league baseball, rooted for a team in Chicago (White Sox) and hated the Yankees over their 15-year period of domination. That teammate also had some words of advice for Judge when asked to give them during a Wednesday news conference.

The New York Yankees have revealed their Opening Day starting lineup in advance of Thursday's matchup against the Toronto Blue Jays, and it includes star right fielder Aaron Judge and prized new addition Giancarlo Stanton hitting back-to-back. "You know, don't try to compare numbers or compare where you were at this point previous year". You don't know what's going to happen, and that's why we love it. "That only exists if you put it in your mind".

Luis Severino picked up where he established himself last season with another ace-level performance in the opener, striking out seven over 5.2 scoreless frames (one hit) before Boone turned to the locked-and-loaded bullpen he's inherited for the final 10 outs. Dwight Evans is the only other player to connect on the first pitch of a season, doing it for the Red Sox in 1986 off Jack Morris at Tiger Stadium, the Elias Sports Bureau said. "But that's good. You need those".

Not every pitcher got tagged, though.

Very little has changed heading into Judge's second Opening Day. "But I didn't think he would swing right away at that". That's just part of being an athlete. Although the weather may not be especially pretty, the calendar has let us know that it is time for baseball. "[But] it's more excitement than anything". "I$3 see the drive from both, see the mistakes from both, and see my own mistakes and then try to get better". The two righties came into the game with a 4-0 Boston lead and threw that straight into the garbage, walking four Rays batters between them-one with the bases loaded-and allowing six runs, as Denard Span ripped a go-ahead triple with the bases loaded for his first multi-RBI hit since the Carter administration.

Shohei Ohtani also got off to a nice start with a hit in his first at-bat.

"Hopefully, those guys create problems more often than not", Aaron Boone said before the game.

On paper, the Yankees are already being considered as one of the most powerful offensive clubs in Major League Baseball history.

Did Gregorius used a face screaming in fear emoji for Stanton in his postgame recap and wrote "i feel bad for the balls".
