Some somnolent news out of Tampa, Fla. yesterday prior to the New York Yankees first exhibition game of the year this afternoon vs the World Champion Boston Red Sox.
Ricky Kalmon, a mindset expert, conducted hypnosis exercises with the team's players, coaches, even the front office staff, with help from Chad Bohling, the club's Director of Mental Conditioning.
"It's amazing to see the power of the human mind at work," said Yankees manager Aaron Boone.
What do you think the 'just see the ball, hit the ball' collection of Hall of Fame Yankees pictured above would think about all this. Can you picture Babe Ruth in the back row of the room yesterday at George M. Steinbrenner Field.
Provided the team doesn't sleep-walk thru Spring Training and beyond, here is one person's projected Yankees starting lineup for 2019.
1. Brett Gardner
2. Aaron Judge
3. Giancarlo Stanton
4. Gary Sanchez
5. Luke Voit
6. Aaron Hicks
7. Miguel Andujar
8. Troy Tulowitzki
9. Gleyber Torres
