The New York Yankees enter 2018 with their eyes set on a 28th World Series championship. Last season was supposed to be a rebuilding year, but the Baby Bombers led the Yankees to a surprising 91-71 record before losing to the Houston Astros in the American League Championship Series. Despite the surprising playoff run, the Yankees parted ways with former manager Joe Girardi. Former Yankees player, ESPN analyst, and postseason hero Aaron Boone has been hired to take over the managerial duties in the Bronx. After falling just one game short of the World Series last year, the Yankees look primed for a huge year in 2018.
General manager Brian Cashman pulled off the franchise’s biggest acquisitions in over a decade, trading for reigning National League MVP Giancarlo Stanton. Stanton and Aaron Judge will form perhaps the most feared duo in the league. With both sluggers standing at 6-7, 250+ pounds, the term Bronx Bombers has been given a new meaning. Judge, the reigning American League Rookie of the Year, is coming off of a historic rookie season in which he hit 52 home runs and knocked in 112 RBI’s. Stanton himself hit 59 home runs and drove in 132 RBI’s during his MVP campaign. You won’t want to miss these two destroying baseballs at Yankee Stadium.
With simply Judge and Stanton in the middle of the lineup, the Yankees would have one of the most potent lineups in Major League Baseball. However they also have one of the deepest lineups in the majors. Shortstop Didi Gregorius is a premier fielder and enjoyed a career year at the plate last season. Catcher Gary Sanchez hit 33 home runs, showing off he too can mash the ball like Judge and Stanton. At the top of the lineup, 34-year old Brett Gardner has proven to be a pesky leadoff hitter and an essential veteran presence as the Yankees’ longest tenured player.
On the mound the Yankees figure to have one of their best starting rotations in years, and we all know about their dominant bullpen. Luis Severino was a finalist for the American League Cy Young award last season, suggesting he could be the Yankees ace for the future. Behind him, Masahiro Tanaka will look to have a bounceback year, and Sonny Gray has high expectations in his first full year in New York. The team also re-signed C.C. Sabathia to a one-year deal in the off-season. With Dellin Betances, David Robertson, and Aroldis Chapman at the back end of the bullpen, it’s going to be nearly impossible to come back from behind against the Yankees in the late innings. The Yankees bullpen is lights out once again.
