When the Major League Baseball Season begins, Yankee fans will finally get a chance to see Gerritt Cole make his Pinstripes debut. He won’t make that many starts in a 60 game season, but the expectations haven’t changed, not after signing a $324 million contract. All teams need to start fast, including the Yankees who along with the Dodgers are 7-2 favorites to win the World Series. If a team stumbles out of the box, they won’t have enough time to catch up with an abbreviated season. I will enjoy watching teams play with a sense of urgency starting with game one of the season.

Another team that will have to get off to a good start is the New York Mets. Will Cespedes be ready? What is the pitching depth? Mike Puma discusses all of that and more above. Make sure to listen.
