OTD in 1951 New York @Yankees Joe DiMaggio officially retires with 361 home runs and an average of .325 after 13 seasons. His 56-game consecutive-game hitting streak in 1941 will stand as one of the all-time best diamond achievements.

Who would not want to have @giancarlo818 on their team? Once I heard about the trade I was excited but at the same time saddened. I am really going to miss @starlincastro1424 - I remember the first time I seen him play, we were in Chicago and from that moment I fell in love with him as a player! Haven’t had a Favorite player since I was a kid but he’s definitely up there. I pray the @yankees can bring them back at some point! #WeWillMissU #pinstripepride #ForeverAYankee
I know this occurred yesterday, but I didn't want to put this out there until it was official.
We got Giancarlo Stanton.
We didn't give up anybody significant either. Jorge Guzman was only a top 10 prospect in our farm system and Jose Devers is 18 years old. The only significant piece of the deal is Starlin Castro, who is constantly injured. It's better off anyways because Gleyber Torres will be better than him and is better defensively at second base. This also opens the door up a little bit more for Miguel Andujar at third. And the other thing: we've got Stanton for 10 more years, who is much cheaper than maybe getting Bryce Harper for $400 million over that same time span. What a great deal.

12•10•17 New teammates are a thing to be exited about. I think two players that hit 50+ home runs and 100+ RBIs back-to-back in any order of any team are to be feared by any pitcher. On Saturday morning, the Marlins and Yankees organization both agreed to trade the 2017 NL MVP @giancarlo818 to the Yankees for two minor leaguers and @starlincastro1424 to the Marlins. The addition of Castro for the @marlins Is key as they recently lost their star second baseman Dee Gordon to the Mariners.
As @yankees fans fainted and @redsox fans plan to extend the Green Monster in left, Stanton agreed to the deal of being sent to one of the most successful and iconic franchises in sports. @thejudge44 , who won the 2017 Home Run Derby, 2017 AL ROY, and was the runner-up for AL MVP tweeted this post to Stanton on how happy he was that Stanton joined the Yankees organization to help them on their quest to find their 28th World Series championship in franchise history.
The Yankees though still need to get rid of big contracts to reach Hal Steinbrenner’s goal of being under the salary cap. Aging center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury may be a great defensive player, but he is not the same Jacoby Ellsbury as he was with the Red Sox in 2011 or 2012. Ellsbury is getting paid $21.14 million dollars to sit on the bench 75% of the time. You can have Stanton DH sometimes, but that won’t fix the problem. However, Hal Steinbrenner knows getting a quality power hitter is something his father George would be proud of.
With Stanton and the many “Baby Bombers” like @elgarysanchez and @severino40 teaming up, the game 7 of the ALCS against the @astrosbaseball will be a thing of the past, making the Yankees the new team to beat. Some may say one guy can’t change a team. I also agree. Stanton won’t change the team, he will add to the intimidation already shown by other MLB clubs.
This may sound familiar to Yankees fans. In February 2004, the Yankees traded minor leaguers to the @rangers in exchange for reigning AL MVP @arod . And I think most of you know how that turned out...
The new addition of Giancarlo Stanton is the sign of the dreaded #evilempire to rise up once again.
To all my followers :
As you may have noticed the username for this account @Mattholliday17 has been changed to @Teamgstanton , After much thought I have decided to change the page theme. Although I still support Holliday and his career, it’s no secret he most likely won’t be returning next season to the Yankees. I’m primarily a Yankee fan and would rather continue supporting them, even if that means switching players,
I understand if some of you may decide to unfollow, regardless, thank you for all the support
