New York Post | Dan Martin: The best part about the beginning of baseball season is the hope that the season belongs to you. The Yankees, despite going with a youth movement, are going with that mindset in 2017. The older players, like 32 year old Chase Headley, think that even though they are young, they’re extremely talented and ready to compete. Good luck.
New York Daily News | Mike Mazzeo: Speaking of veteran presents, the Yankees signed Matt Holliday to a one-year deal this offseason. The DH position was open and they felt that Holliday still had a lot left to offer. Matt Holliday also thinks that Matt Holliday has a bit more gas left in the tank. Here’s hoping he does, since Gary Sanchez could probably use a bit of protection in the lineup.
CBS New York | Sweeny Murti: Enough of the old fogies though, AMIRITE? It’s time to talk with some of the new blood. Sweeny Murti talked with prospects Clint Frazier and Justus Sheffield in his 30 with Murti podcast. Murti also talked with Alan Cockrell about fixing Jacoby Ellsbury’s swing. Fix it, please.
NJ.com | Randy Miller: There’s a reason the Yankees are hyping up their farm system lately. It’s good. It’s very good actually. According to Keith Law, it’s the 2nd best farm system in the league, only behind the Atlanta Braves in terms of excellence. This is good.
