Giancarlo Stanton Homers in First At-Bat as a Yankee

After the curtain opened on the 2018 campaign at a sold-out Rogers Centre on Thursday, it would be hard for even the team's most ardent supporters to find a few optimistic morsels for the long grind ahead. "We're just giving him some mess on the first day". Or regression, depending on your outlook.

The handsome thing about baseball though is that its eight months provide so many twists and turns that expectations can fly out the window once the first pitch is thrown.

Giancarlo Stanton needed all of two pitches before hitting his first home run with the New York Yankees.

The league issued a warning to the Yankees after the faces of sluggers Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge were among those to appear in beer foam at a media event at the stadium Monday, Newsday reported.

Severino (1-0) struck out seven and held Toronto to just one hit and three walks over 5 2/3 innings. However, I do think the Yankees may need another starter. "It shows in the way that he goes about his business and the pride he takes in every part of the game has been impressive".

It looked anything but in Thursday's opener. Donaldson's throws to first base were noticeably weak. I think the Mets will be risky when Michael Conforto returns from injury, likely at the beginning of May. "I don't have any pain or anything; that's always good".

"We may DH him a little bit more until it comes back". Here are the biggest winners and loses from Opening Day. "I tried to be as calm as possible coming up, and the anticipation was big for me". "There's so much going on. I feel like he did that and that's a credit to our clubhouse and the guys in that room and to see his work ethic behind the scenes - to see all that goes into him preparing each day he gets after it".

High court Judge Roselyn Aburili has also ordered that Miguna miguna be presented in the court on Wednesday, March 28th. The repeat ballot had a low turnout as Odinga boycotted it, citing a lack of electoral reforms.

For Gibbons and the Jays, the pregame hassle was just the start. "Your guess is as good as mine", Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said.

After pounding defending champion SC by 29 points (94-65) in Monday night's regional championship game, the 36-0 Huskies reached the Final Four for the 11th consecutive year and 19th time in school history and are on the verge of capturing its 12th national championship and wrapping up its seventh ideal season since Geno Auriemma assumed control of the program in 1985.

Blue Jays shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was scheduled to see a specialist this week to discuss treatment options for painful bone spurs in his right foot. The team that made the playoffs 17 times over an 18-year stretch between 1995 and 2012 - and won five World Series - somehow managed to turn itself into another powerhouse just a few seasons after the key players from those championship teams retired.

That means you'll be seeing a lot more of Aledmys Diaz, who got the start at short for Toronto on Thursday.

He's ready to get started, and ready to start peppering the outfield bleachers with souvenirs.

Stanton, the reigning National League most valuable player, lined an 0-1 pitch from the left-hander J.A. Happ over the right-field wall in the first inning, scoring Brett Gardner.

According to ESPN, the opposite field blast measured at 426 feet by Statcast and the exit velocity was measured at 117.3 miles per hour, the fastest for a batted ball at Rogers Centre since Statcast began tracking in 2015. All in all, it was not a bad how-do-you-do to his new team.
