[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Another Yankee pitching bust? : Interesting how SP, perhaps the most important category, is not mentioned. Also, then why are there such dire predictions about where the RS shall end up? Finally, the Globe's position by position comparison is about as insightful as the NY Post; to writ; how many Globe writers picked the Giants to win the SB? I retract; few papers are as bad as the Post; at least some of the Globe writers attempt to tell it like it is. The Post is a comic book for dumbed down biased NYers.

It was a public opinion poll, but I'm just speaking about my own opinion. SP was all lumped into a single category, but I would have the breakdown like this:
Sabathia vs Beckett = advantage NYY
Pineda vs Lester = advantage BOS
Nova vs Buchholz = advantage BOS
Kuroda vs Bard = advantage BOS
Garcia vs Aceves = advangate BOS
On paper, I think this is advantage BOS by a fair margin, but I concede that either or both of Aceves & Bard could be disasters over the course of a long season. And there is no guarantee this is even our starting rotation. There are wild cards like Hughes and Andrew Miller on both sides as well.
I give the Yankees a big advantage in the bullpen (hoping Andrew Bailey will have me eating my words) and a fair advantage at 3B in months not ending with 'ber'.
