Only four pairs of teammates have combined for more than 100 HR in a single season. Stanton and Judge combined for 111 HR last season Maris (61) Mantle (54) - 115 Bonds (73) Aurillia (37) - 110 Ruth (60) Gehrig (47) - 107 ARod (57) Palmeiro (43) - 100 https://t.co/g1jEYlpcT0
Everyone is already wondering if they will be able to tell Stanton and Judge apart with both wearing Yankees pinstripes.

Instead of trembling in fear, Toronto Blue Jays ace Marcus Stroman welcomed the challenge.
Others thought it was fishy the Yankees got an elite player from the Marlins and new owner Derek Jeter.
