Sports Blue Jays set sights for playoffs by Ben Fraser

"We got down to the ball park and the Zamboni was going around cleaning the snow off, cleaning the diamond and getting ready. I didn't really have to throw too hard today so I didn't ..."

2 runs, 2 hits, 0 errors, 1 left on.

"I talk about [Vladimir Guerrero Jr] and Bo Bichette nearly in the same breath - these kids could be the 'generational type talent, '. the future of the Toronto Blue Jays", he said. Judge singled, doubled and walked for NY, which opened the season with a road win for the first time since 2006 at Oakland.

"Going up there with a plan like he always does", Boone said.

Finally, the 2018 Major League Baseball season will begin tomorrow. NY fired Joe Girardi after the Game 7 loss to Houston in the AL Championship Series, deciding it needed a new approach. "Just excited to see (Severino) get off to a good start".

The first pitch is at 7.07pm ET (12.07am BST). Betances and Aroldis Chapman retired the final six batters in order.

Former Toronto Blue Jays pitching great Roy Halladay's name is honoured during the Jay's opener in Toronto on Thursday. Jarrod Dyson added two hits, including an RBI triple, in front of 48,703 at Chase Field. Seeing that work ethic late in his career is something that you look up to and say that's who I want to be. "A lot of hearts, prayers, the whole bit". An issue of deeper concern was that of former American League MVP Josh Donaldson's inability to make consistent cross-diamond throws.

"I think there's going to be some lean years in Detroit but that's what rebuildings are made of, we're seeing a lot of teams do it in major league baseball and I don't disagree with it", said Siddall, who has previously played for the Tigers.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book YouWager, the Yankees are -144 money line favorites to beat the Blue Jays, who have odds of +130 to pull off the upset. Halladay was killed in a personal aircraft crash on November 7 past year.

"I still regret not jumping on field because our seats were close enough we would have beaten Carter to the plate", said Jonathan. Gregorius credited him with only three RBIs. I'd also enjoy seeing Tyler Clippard give up some home runs for old time's sake. That translates to "Giancarlo, you can not stop it!" "Even though it was a big-time opening day, my first time as a Yankee, I was able to calm down".

The Blue Jays also placed brittle veteran shortstop Troy Tulowitzki on the 60-day disabled list. The move is retroactive to March 28.

Hicks suffered an intercostal strain on his right side, basically the same injury as his previously injured oblique that cost him a bunch of time last season. Over that time with the Jays he won 148 games, putting up a 3.43 ERA, 1.2 WHIP and 1,495 strikeouts in 2046.2 innings.

Slugger Giancarlo Stanton paved the way in his first regular-season game in Yankees pinstripes after coming over in a trade with the Miami Marlins, stroking two impressive home runs to drive in four runs.

2018 could be a very good year for the New York Yankees after they surpassed all expectations in 2017 and made their way to the postseason as a young team at the start of what was projected to be a rebuilding period.
