Newsday | Erik Boland: The Yankees won 100 games in 2018’s regular season. They could not make it past the vile, evil, heinous Boston Red Sox in the ALDS. That was 2018 though. The 2019 Yankees feel ready to pounce on the rest of the league. They are hungry and confident. Who wouldn’t be after two seasons of excellence and disappointment? Aaron Boone has a whole year under his belt, as does Stanton. Yes, Giancarlo Stanton is still a Yankee.

New York Daily News | Kristie Ackert: Oh yeah, Aaron Judge is also still a Yankee. That’s pretty cool if you ask me. Judge is focused and ready to go and his goal is for the Yankees to win the AL East. After two straight years of dealing with the Wild Card one game elimination death match, I tend to agree with his honor. Win the division so we can avoid that heartache. | Mark Feinsand: Troy Tulowitzki will be on the Opening Day roster today. He has waited for this moment for a long time. A long time. It’s also worth mentioning that after a year of injuries, Tulo is hoping to re-ignite his career by remaining healthy. With Didi Gregorius on the IL, it will be Tulo’s time to shine in the Bronx.

Cut4 | Chris Landers: Speaking of the world’s best human, Sir Didi Gregorius will make sure to have his knightly presence be known while recovering. Hopefully he will be bringing his clubhouse photographer hobby from Tampa to the Bronx. Most importantly, Didi’s Victory Tweets will be back. In my opinion, the Yankees should win today so we can get one as soon as possible. Happy Opening Day everyone.
