    Although this appears to be the worst NYY team coming out of the gate in 22 yrs, not a single word was mentioned about their SP here; not a surprise, of course. As far as their BP not being as good as the RS, that remains to be seen; the same was said here last yr. Regardless, the experts have finally soured some on them.

    Also, the RS  having a 48 yr seasonal low in 2012 does have some bearing on the prognosticators, and in reality. 



    The Yankees starting rotation looks good not great. If Buchholz and Lester pitch half as good as they did in ST they will be pretty good themselves. Both rotation have a few question marks.

    Before the season started last night, the Cool Standings website gave the Red Sox a 29.7 percent chance of advancing to the postseason (ranking ahead of five American League teams):

    You have really become a characterture of your self if you include this in your arsenal of "advanced" metrices.

    ESPN picking the Yanks from what I saw, even though Cano is the only one playing from last year. Red Sox dead last because of no Ortiz. Go figure.

    After today, I'm starting to wonder (despite the 1 game sample). The NYY look even worse than expected. I never saw such a collection of over-the-hill1st-basemen. And Bradley looks like the real deal, even if he probably does need more seasoning. Also, I disagree about Balt; I believe they'll get a WC. Agree about Tor; assuming the sum equals the addition of its parts.

    I now have Tor, Bal, TB, Bos, NYY

    Bradley and Iggy help, but even if we happen to squeek into the playoffs, we aren't going far unless an amazing confluence of events occur.



    Not really.  If we make the playoffs, we are probably the second favorite behind Detroit.

    Your response "You have really become a characterture of your self if you include this in your arsenal of 'advanced' metrices" hardly suggests a debate. I would welcome a post of substance.

    The Yanks will regroup, add some key elements at the deadline and be in the race to the end.

    Not really. The Angels and AL East winner should be higher favorites. If the A's or Rangers win the other WC, they may be higher rated than us as well. Who knows at this point.
