The Baseball season is LESS than THREE weeks away and the New York Yankees are making their LAST few adjustments before they head to Toronto for Opening Day on the 29th. It is not a SECRET that the Yankees have really HIGH expectations this season, based on how Spring Training has been going for them, I do NOT think those EXPECTATIONS have affected them one bit.

The THREE best hitters in the Yankees lineup, Giancarlo Stanton, Gary Sanchez, and Aaron Judge, have already HIT bombs in Spring Training and seem ready for games to count again. Secondary players like Aaron Hicks, Didi Gregorious, and Greg Bird are also RAKING right now and I cannot wait for the season to start.
There is a COUPLE of position BATTLES still left to be settled in the next couple of weeks. The Big one is the battle at Third Base between rookie Miguel Andujar and Brandon Drury, who recently came over to the Yankees in a THREE team involving the Arizona Diamondbacks, his former team and the Tampa Bay Rays. BOTH players are really YOUNG and have been having really GOOD Spring Training campaigns thus far and DESERVE to be on the Yankees’ Opening Day roster and I think they BOTH will make it. Andujar has been the BEST player on the team during Spring Training so I think he will WIN the Third Base Job and Drury will be the STARTING second baseman on Opening Day.
The Yankees Starting Pitching rotation looks to be SET for the season after manager Aaron Boone announced over the weekend that the FIFTH starter in the rotation will be Jordan Montgomery, who had a GREAT rookie season last year. The Yankees pitching rotation on Opening Day is probably going to be Luis Severino, Masahiro Tanaka, Sonny Gray, CC Sabathia, and Montgomery. ALL of those pitchers just need to extend their innings for the rest of Spring Training and get set for the regular season.
I have been waiting for Baseball season to start for a LONG time and it needs to HURRY UP or else I will DIE off all the wet dreams I have had thus far in Spring Training.
