It will be the first of 19 meetings between the two clubs and this season should be a fun one for the ancient rivals.

If the Yankees and Dodgers stay under the threshold, their base tax rate would drop from 50 percent to 20 percent in 2019, putting them in better position next offseason for a free-agent class that includes Bryce Harper, Manny Machado and Josh Donaldson.

It's a major blow for Bird, who played in just 48 games last season due to an ankle injury, hitting.190 with nine homers and 28 RBI. Many teams struggle to find a reliable closer. Four-time All-Star reliever Dellin Betances put the hammer down on the first day of spring training, saying, "If we don't win [the World Series], it won't be a great year for us". Both teams boast young stars, pitching depth and sluggers ready to swing for the fences. As usual, only a World Series title will truly satiate the masses. It's Opening Day and baseball is back.
