All the talk of the Boston Red Sox having the best team in history seems to have taken a mini-vacation thanks to their 0-4 start. In the mean time, the Texas Rangers team that most thought would fall off this season are unbeaten along with the Cincinnati Reds and Baltimore Orioles.

Enough with that, though, with 162 games in the season, there is no point in getting worked up over the first week back in action. Unless, of course, you are a fan of baseball cleats. In that case, the first week of the season is an opportunity to take a look at some of the player exclusive models and colorways that are just one of the benefits of playing in the big leagues.

While it might be painful to admit for some, myself included, the Yankees seem to have raised the bar for player exclusives in just a few days back in the Bronx. That doesn’t mean there weren’t some other gems on the field.

Check out some of the finds in the latest MLB Watch coverage below.
