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.

Yankees RHP Luis Severino watched "Friends" to help him learn English, he said on Jim Rome's Daily Jungle.

"I love watching 'Friends,'" said Severino, who is representing the Yankees at the MLB All-Star game in D.C. "I think I learned a lot of English from watching 'Friends.'"

Severino said in the past he has asked teammates if he was unsure of a word.

Severino talks deGrom 00:00:14
Luis Severino compliments Jacob deGrom and says that if the Yankees traded for him, 'it would be great.'

Yankees ace Luis Severino wouldn't mind another ace joining him in pinstripes -- especially Jacob deGrom, who is across town with the Mets. 

"He's one of the greatest pitchers," Severino said on Monday at All-Star Game media day. "Great guy. He's awesome. ... if they trade him to the Yankees, I mean, that would be great."

The 30-year-old deGrom, who has been otherworldly for the Mets this season while posting a league-leading 1.68 ERA, has been the subject of trade rumors.

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."

The Yankees - on pace to win 106 games - are on vacation with the rest of baseball. But when they come back from the All-Star break, they will have to undergo some changes.

Just ahead of the Mid-Summer Classic, two All-Stars faced off in Cleveland. 

Yankees RHP Luis Severino was scheduled to pitch against Indians RHP Corey Kluber and expectations were high. 

Unfortunately for the neutral viewer, neither Severino nor Kluber were on the top of their game. Severino labored through five innings, allowing four runs on nine hits with two strikeouts while Kluber was able to last 7.1 innings, but was tagged for six runs on eight hits with nine strikeouts...

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.

Yankees ace Luis Severino has been named to his second consecutive All-Star Game, but does he deserve the starting nod?

Severino's 2.12 ERA is the second-best in the AL (Tampa Bay's Blake Snell leads the league at 2.09 and was somehow left off the All-Star Game roster), but two mediocre starts in his last four have hurt him a bit.

While Severino's ERA barely clips Astros ace Justin Verlander (2.15), he trails Verlander in two other notable categories.

Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is on the final vote for the American League All-Star Game roster.

Stanton, Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi, Angels shortstop Andrelton Simmons, Twins outfielder Eddie Rosario and Mariners shortstop Jean Segura are under consideration for the 32nd roster spot.

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.

Yankees starter Luis Severino allowed three runs on five hits in five innings in Saturday's 8-5 win over the Blue Jays.

Severino allowed a pair of home runs, but kept Toronto largely contained even when he didn't have his best stuff. He walked two batters and struck out five across 97 pitches. 

"I didn't have my slider today," Severino said, according to MLB.com. I didn't throw that many changeups today. I just feel like sometimes I don't want to throw it. Every time your team scores that many runs, that helped me a lot. I didn't have my best stuff today, but it was a great team win."

The Yankees' newest prospect has a familiar last name, and the franchise hopes he has the stuff to boast, too.

New York signed 19-year-old Rafael Severino, the brother of Luis Severino, on Monday, and the Yankees ace had nothing but praise for his younger brother.

"He's a great pitcher," Luis said, according to Newsday's Erik Boland, about Rafael, whose repertoire includes a high-80s fastball, a "great" slider, a changeup and potentially a sinker.

After the Red Sox crushed Yankees pitching on Saturday night, manager Aaron Boone was hoping his ace would flip the script in the rubber match on Sunday. Luis Severino was up for the challenge

Severino won his league-leading 13th game of the season on Sunday with an 11-1 victory over the Boston Red Sox at Yankee Stadium. He struck out six batters in 6 2/3 scoreless innings, allowing just two hits and leaving five Boston hitters stranded on the basepaths as he won his fourth straight start.

This outing was the exact opposite of his first start against the Sox this season, where he allowed five runs over five innings. His second outing was much better with 11 strikeouts and only two runs crossing the plate on his watch.

Yankees ace Luis Severino has evolved in to one of the best pitchers in baseball, but does he deserve the honor of starting the All-Star Game next month in Washington, D.C.?

While Severino has been dominant -- his 2.10 ERA is fourth-best in the majors -- he hasn't been quite as dominant as Tigers ace Justin Verlander.

Verlander's 1.82 ERA is the best in the American League, trailing only Mets ace Jacob deGrom (1.69) in all of baseball. Meanwhile, Verlander's MLB-best 0.81 WHIP is a good deal better than Severino's 0.96 WHIP.

Who's better: deGrom or Severino 00:00:17
Who's the best pitcher in New York -- Mets right-hander Jacob deGrom or Yankees right-hander Luis Severino?

Mets RHP Jacob deGrom's 1.69 ERA is the best in baseball, and he is coming off one of the best stretches in the history of baseball.

Yankees RHP Luis Severino's 2.10 ERA is the fourth-best in baseball, as he features his high octane fastball that has hit 99 MPH more than any starting pitcher in the game this season.

Severino's 0.96 WHIP is a tick better than deGrom's 1.01 WHIP. Meanwhile, deGrom's 11.2 K/9 rate tops Severino's 10.6 rate. Since the won/loss stat for pitchers should be shot in to the sun, the other important stat here is that deGrom and Severino are both averaging roughly 6.1 innings per start. Only one can be known as the best pitcher in New York. Who ya got?

Consider Yankees RHP Luis Severino's previous start against the Mariners a hiccup. 

Severino returned to his dominant form Tuesday night in Philadelphia, collecting his MLB-leading 12th win in the process. It was yet another shutout start for Severino, and for manager Aaron Boone, another reason why his young ace should be consider one of the best hurlers in the game. 

"It's hard for me to imagine anyone better," Boone told The Post's George A. King III. "The record speaks for itself, the ability to get deep into games and he has been really good against the elite competition. He has put himself in the conversation about the best in the game, no doubt about it."

Never be satisfied.

The last three times through the rotation for Domingo German have been quite inspiring, while the Yankees also received an eye-opening MLB debut from Jonathan Loaisiga within the last week. Despite the positive feelings and excitement around two more young players, the Yankees should not be dissuaded from pulling the trigger for a rotation improvement as the trade market comes into focus, and the sooner the better.

In 2018's iteration of the Subway Series, the mood surrounding each of New York City's teams couldn't be more different. The second-place Yankees are one of the best teams in baseball, with an embarrassment of riches as far as talent. The likes of Brandon DruryRonald Torreyes and Clint Frazier are in the minors; Neil Walker is a luxury infielder for the team. 

The Mets are mired in a tailspin. Since their 11-1 start, they are 16-31, and have been mired in one of the worst offensive funks in the history of the franchise. They have slipped to fourth place in the NL East, 7.5 games back of the Nationals heading into the weekend. 

Here are the probable pitching matchups for the series:

Yankees RHP Luis Severino came into Monday's start pitching dominantly over his last nine outings.

Make that 10.

Severino, once again, proved why he is the Yankees' ace in Game 1 of New York's doubleheader against the Tigers in Detroit. He went eight strong innings to pick up his AL-leading ninth win on the season, and help the Yankees to their fifth straight victory.

Yankees better than Astros? 00:01:57
The Daily News Live panel debates whether the Yankees are better than the Astros after taking five of seven from the defending champions.

The Yankees and Astros held an epic seven-game battle in last season's American League Championship Series with Houston moving on to the World Series and an eventual title. The teams could be on the way to meeting again this postseason.

Regular season games cannot be compared to a postseason contests, but what can we glean from the seven games the Yankees and Astros played in the 2018 season series?

If one were to look at Masahiro Tanaka's record, it would show a starting pitcher enjoying a great start to the season. At 5-2 after last night's win over the Rangers on the road, Tanaka hasn't lost a start since April 17. 

But all adept baseball fans know a pitcher's record is only the facade. And for Tanaka, that couldn't be any more true. 

It was another night that saw a less-than-impressive Tanaka despite getting the victory chalked up in his win column. The 29-year-old let the long ball hurt him again as all four runs he allowed came on home runs. The first was a moonshot to Joey Gallo in the bottom of the second followed by Rougned Odor's first homer of the season, a three-run bomb to right-center that tied the game at four.
