The Toronto Blue Jays enter this season with renewed hopes, as plenty of off-season dealings may just have this team primed for a run at the World Series. The Yankees on the other hand, also come into the season with a ton of expectation with most of their expectations being because the big-time sluggers on the team appear to be ready to go.
Toronto Blue Jays
Although the Blue Jays will not be able to play at their home stadium early on this year, their is still plenty of excitement north of the border for a Blue Jays team who is the most hyped in recent memory.
There is plenty of reason for people to be excited as well, with their young core of players returning with particular excitement surrounding Bo Bichette and Vladimir Guerrero Jr, as people expect both of them to take the next step in their careers.
Hyun Jin Ryu will get the start here for the Blue Jays and the lefty is coming off of a really solid season allowing a 2.69 ERA last year and it would not surprise me if he improves upon those numbers here in 2021.
New York Yankees
The Yankees are sure to be a player in the American League this year if they are to stay healthy and unfortunately we are already seeing some cracks in the Yankees in terms of injuries. Giancarlo Stanton will be good to go for opening day, but the status of Aaron Judge is a little bit up in the air as he is currently listed as day to day for this contest.
Aaron Judge when healthy has legit 50+ home run upside as we saw in his rookie season, but he has suffered so many injuries that it is quite concerning to see him on the injury report before the season even starts.
Gerrit Cole will get the start here, and he is another reason to believe in the Yankees as a whole as he is a bonafide ace and I have no doubt he will be ready to go against a sneaky good batting lineup the the Jays bring in to Yankee Stadium this Thursday.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
These are two real good pitchers and either one of them could go very deep into this game keeping this game from going over the total. The other side of things though, is two excellent batting lineups who will not be involved in many games with an over under of 7.5, so I would like to take advantage of that while I can in the thought that these two teams will be two of the highest scoring in the league.
It is important to watch the status of Aaron Judge though, as he does change the dynamics of the Yankees batting lineup should he be forced to miss the home opener.
