Is Troy Tulowitzki finally healthy? If he really is, he’ll be a hell of a fill-in for Didi. The Yankees are certainly betting a lot on Tulo’s return.
Bird is the Word

Is Greg Bird finally healthy!?! It comes as a surprise to many, but Greg Bird and Luke Voit will both make the opening day roster, with Bird most likely serving as the primary DH. Will this finally be the year we see Bird break out?
Tyler Wade was asked what the #Yankees told him today when cutting him. "That they need a real outfielder. Apparently I’m not."
— Randy Miller (@RandyJMiller) March 24, 2019
This time of year always is a tough time for some players as teams need to whittle down their rosters to 25. Looks like Tyler Wade really did not expect to be cut this year. That being said, why was Clint Frazier optioned if the Yankees need a real outfielder?

Congratulations to Masahiro Tanaka and his family who are expecting a new baby due in June!

Aaron Judge’s sophomore season was good, but it was also shortened by injury. Should Judge remain healthy this whole season, he will likely compete for an MVP.

One thing’s for sure, Aaron Judge is the man.

#StartSpreadingTheNews, Stanton crushes two ✌️ pic.twitter.com/OF7YPCB5mG

Speaking of MVPs, Giancarlo Stanton settled in nicely in his first season with the Yankees. He ended up with 38 home runs and 100+ RBIs and Runs. That was considered a down year. Now that Stanton has a year under his belt in the American League, he should be able to adjust and take advantage of all the small ballparks in the A.L. East. If we’re lucky, he and Judge will treat us to a good home run race.

Oh yeah, we traded for one of the best pitchers in baseball this offseason! Paxton, though often injured, is excellent when he’s on the field. With 19 Ks in 17.1 IP and only 1 HR given up this spring, the Big Maple looks poised to start off on the right foot in the Bronx.
Aaron Boone says the Yankees’ pitchers back in Tampa checked out well today. Dellin Betances felt good as he played catch for the first time since his right shoulder impingement. Luis Severino also threw at 120 feet for the first time. CC Sabathia should have a bullpen tomorrow.
— Coley Harvey (@ColeyHarvey) March 25, 2019
Good reports all around for Sevy, C.C., and Dellin. The Yankees are deep enough to sustain some injuries, but it’s concerning to have so many key players out to open up the season. Let’s hope the good news keeps coming.
O’s being O’s
The Yankees play them six times in the first 10 days of the season. https://t.co/yq8VHTZUjC

Will the Orioles even win 50 games this year? Seriously though, the Orioles will be horrible again and the Yankees did not beat up on them last year as much as they probably should have.

Everyone’s favorite color commentator, Yankee legend, Paul O’Neill is one of my favorites to listen to in the booth. When David Cone joins in as well, I’m not sure there’s a better combo in the league. Looking forward to hearing these guys all year long.
Here we go!
