New York Yankees baseball is normally associated with one of the best franchises in all of sports. Well, the money speaks for itself.

According to Forbes, the Yankees are valued at $4 billion, making them the most valuable MLB franchise in 2018. They also come in at fifth overall in the world. 

There are six MLB teams in the top 50, but this storied franchise can thank their exciting, young team for a large boost in revenue. Led by Aaron Judge, Luis Severino, and Gary Sanchez, this young Yankees team is drawing viewers at home and at Yankee Stadium.

Severino, Judge on All-Star Game 00:02:08
Luis Severino and Aaron Judge discuss their experience at the All-Star Game. Justine Ward and Andy Martino discuss key Yankee storylines.

Luis Severino worked around a leadoff double and pitched a scoreless second inning on Tuesday night in his first MLB All-Star game.

Severino pitched in the bottom of the second inning after teammate Aaron Judge hit a solo home run in the top of the inning to give the AL a 1-0 lead. Severino was warming up in the bullpen at the time and caught Judge's home run.

Matt Kemp led off the bottom half of the inning with a line drive double to left fielder Aaron Judge, putting a runner in scoring position. But Severino struck out Bryce Harper, got Nick Markakis to fly out, and struck out Brandon Crawford to end the inning.

Given he won't be attempting to defend his Home Run Derby crown, Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge is looking to relax and take in the All-Star Game festivities in his second go around.

The 26-year-old Yankees slugger, one of the top three leading vote-getters among American League outfielders, will bat sixth and start in left field for the AL in Tuesday's All-Star Game. 

Though he said "it's been a while" since he last batted sixth -- Sept. 10, 2017, was the last time, he said he was glad he was starting for the second year a row.

Yankees RHP Luis Severino was in the debate to start for the American League in the 2018 All-Star Game. Instead, he's coming out of the bullpen.

Red Sox LHP Chris Sale was named the starter by AL manager A.J. Hinch on Monday. This is Sale's third straight All-Star Game start as he continues to perform at the highest level.

"He is truly a special pitcher in our league," Hinch said during Monday's press conference to announe the starters. "He's truly someone who deserves this honor."

Former Yankees great Bernie Williams played on New York's best team -- and arguably one of the best teams to play the game -- in 1998. He has a few championship rings from his 1990s playing days to show for it too.

But, when asked if this year's Yankee team deserves comparison to his squad, Bernie couldn't agree more. 

"It's very exciting to watch," he told Newsday's Sal Cacciatore at the Double-A All-Star Game in Trenton, NJ on Wednesday night. Williams played the National Anthem with his guitar before the game kicked off.

Things to know about Monday's game

1) Sabathia (6-4) had thrown five solid innings before he came out for the sixth inning and promptly walked Mark Trumbo and allowed a double to Jonathan Schoop. Valencia then knocked Sabathia out of the game by hitting a 1-1 slider over the center-field fence to turn a 4-2 Yankees lead into a 5-4 deficit.

2) The Yankees had the tying runner in scoring position in the ninth inning when Miguel Andujar hit a pinch-hit single and advanced to second on a wild pitch. Brandon Drury moved him over to third with a groundout, but Kyle Higashioka struck out and Brett Gardner grounded out to first to end the game.

Stanton, in his first year as a Yankee, has hit .267 with 21 home runs and 51 RBIs in 86 games. Though he won the Home Run Derby in 2016 and competed in it last year, he will not compete in it this season even if he makes the All-Star Game.

After Ronald Acuna Jr. connected on a 1-2 slider, Yankees RHP David Robertson thought he had an out. Instead, he gave the lead back to the Braves in the top of the 11th inning. 

Yankees C Austin Romine signaled for the slider to be down to get the 20-year-old Acuna chasing. However, he lifted it out to right field, an area no pitcher wants to see a high fly ball go at Yankee Stadium.

When players of any sport travel on the road, they hear tons of chants from fans designed to get them off their game. They can be harsh, vile, and downright degrading. 

And what Red Sox LHP David Price heard from Yankees fans on Sunday night during his dreadful start was the worst of them all. 

Price had arguably his worst start of his career as the Yankees shelled him for eight runs on nine hits including five homers over 3.1 innings. And while Yankees fans enjoyed their team hitting one of the best left-handed pitchers in the game like batting practice, they added insult to injury by chanting, "Who's your daddy," at Price before his early exit.

With just three days left to vote for the 2018 All-Star Game, Yankees OF Aaron Judge is the only pinstriped player slated to start for the American League. 

This latest update on the ballot isn't a surprise as Judge was the third-best outfielder in voting last week as well. He remains in that slot this week with 2,021,348 votes, and Mookie Betts and Mike Trout ahead of him. 

Gleyber Torres, Giancarlo Stanton, and Gary Sanchez also remain in second place for their respective positions, while Miguel Andujar fell to third in third bas voting as Astros' Alex Bregman took the runner-up position. Didi Gregorius also fell from third to fourth in the shortstop list.

There are other Yankees on the ballot, however, they sit behind others. Gleyber Torres (797,817) is sitting behind the top-voted player in Jose Altuve (2,460,967) for second base, while Miguel Andujar (764,032) is behind Jose Ramirez (1,319,651) for third base.

The Yankees have made it clear they will be on the prowl for another rotation piece before the trade deadline strikes. The prospects they will part with to acquire their new arm, though, is still up in the air. 

One of the top prospects that will entice teams will likely be OF Clint Frazier, who has been the odd man out among a stacked Yankees outfield that includes veterans like Brett Gardner and Aaron Hicks along with Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge

Though Frazier's name will likely be presented to GM Brian Cashman in proposed deals, he doesn't want to see him out of pinstripes anytime soon.

Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner said while he isn't focused on free agency just yet, he hopes he can remain in New York.

Gardner, in the final year of a four-year, $52 million deal, can hit free agency in the offseason if the Yankees decline his $12.5 million team option for 2019. And the longest-tenured Yankee hopes he can remain in pinstripes beyond the 2018 season.

"I love it here," Gardner said, according to Newsday's Steven Marcus. "I've never been shy about saying that. Hopefully, I'll play for a few more years and hopefully that'll be here.''

Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner knows what the rest of us do about the Yankees: They need starting pitching. 

The rotation was a question to begin the year, and it certainly didn't help when the injury bug found its way to it. Jordan Montgomery had to undergo Tommy John surgery last week, and most recently, Masahiro Tanaka was lost to injured hamstrings after tagging up on a fly ball during the series with the Mets this past weekend.

There needs to be more depth in the rotation, and Steinbrenner admitted Wednesday that the team has money to go out and get someone by the trade deadline.

After his 0-for-4 performance to finish the three-game Subway Series on Sunday, Sanchez is now 4-for-his-last-53 (.079) and he has not put one out of the ballpark since his two-homer game in Kansas City on May 19. Overall, he is hitting /.190/.291/.430 this season. 

Before the season began, many salivated at the prospect of Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton in the same lineup. However, the Yankees made it a point to say Sanchez was their most complete hitter...

Giants first-rounder RB Saquon Barkley was brought out before the Yankees-Astros game in the Bronx Tuesday night to throw out the ceremonial first pitch, and he had just one goal in mind. 

Throw it over the plate. 

"When you step out of your element, that's when it gets different," Barkley told The Post's Howie Kussoy. "I actually was a little nervous. I didn't think I was gonna be nervous because in college I played in front of 110,000 [fans] on a weekly basis."

Rookie second baseman Gleyber Torres hit two home runs while Aaron Judge hit his 12th homer of the season as the Yankees beat the Texas Rangers 10-5 on Monday at Globe Life Park in Arlington. >> Box score


Torres, at 21 years, 159 days, became the youngest Yankee since Mickey Mantle (20 years, 296 days) to have a multi-homer game. His second-inning homer off Bartolo Colon gave the Yankees a 3-0 lead, and he added another one in the sixth inning to make it 6-4.

Neil Walker went 2-for-5 with a home run and two RBIs and Aaron Hicks also homered as the Yankees became the first team since the 1961 Milwaukee Brewers, according to The Athletic's Katie Sharp, to hit at least four home runs in three straight road games on the same road trip. New York also became the fourth team in modern MLB history to total at least eight extra-base hits in three straight games.

Despite his strong start and leading the team in home runs, Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge believes he still has a ways to go to reach his potential.

"People keep talking about how well I'm doing, but I look at as I'm still trying to get consistent,'' Judge said, according to the New York Post's Dan Martin. "I don't feel like I've been consistent all year."

The 26-year-old Judge leads the Yankees in every major offensive statistical category: batting average (.307), home runs (11), RBIs (35), on-base percentage (.441), slugging percentage (.593), OPS (1.035) and hits (46). 

Even so, he feels he can do better.

Once Thursday comes to an end, Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge will have been fully contained for two straight days…by Mother Nature and a scheduled off-day for the club.

No one knew what to expect of Judge in 2017. All he did was go on a marvelous tear through major league pitching staffs, becoming an instant star as he clobbered 30 home runs by the All-Star break.
