    Mitch Williams of MLB

    Predicts the NYY to finish last. He's a pretty smart guy, and I see his point.

     

    My brother, a somewhat homerish NYY fan, said the same thing during ST.

    Yeah, they will. But it will be a dogfight for fourth place by September.

    True; unless Toronto's Wins equals or exceeds the sum of its parts

    Sober Yanqui fans here, Steve ...

        So much damage per injury.   Not a one is expecting much.   Very understandable.  We've had crucial injuries before, but not sure if any equal Bombers breaks

    They also let some walk (Swisher excepted). Also, IMO injuries are no excuse. This is the worst NYY team in 22 yrs coming out of the gate regardless.

    NH,

    Injuries are a reality, not an excuse, teams build thier rosters based on availble funds and talant. When the key guys go down it's tough to replace them.  Arod, Granderson, Jeter & Texiera that's about 90 million in payroll tied up on the DL and the heart of what was supposed to be the batting order coming out of camp...hard for most teams to overcome losing 2 of your top 6 in the lineup...4 of 6 makes for a tough go even for the cash rich on a budget Yankees.

    End of the day the goal for them is to keep themselves in it, play close to .500 ball and then as they begin to get healthy, make run...For them to do so they'll need to pitch and win the 4-3 games.  So while I agree this is the "worst" line-up in 20 years" if you look back in time, I doubt you'd find one of those teams that broke camp without 3/4 of the starting infield and the starting centerfielder. To soon to kick dirt on them...That said even healthy they were not the prohibitive favorites to win the division...

    You are not getting any sympathy from Boston after what was endured last season in fact IF the Sox sweep tonight they will be looking forward to the home opener and anxious for a POSSIBLE sweep getting 6 of the Yankee games out of the way very early in the season and before the full Y squad returns.

    The Yanks need great pitching right now to have any chance. If Kuroda misses a few starts that would hurt bad. And Sabathia does not look like himself.

            Maybe the Dodgers will bail out the yanks like they did for boston.

            Before the season started I liked the direction the sox were headed in.

            They will be competitive this year and contenders going forward.

            Putting all your eggs in a very old basket is bad business.

            Yanks will be paying that price for awhile.

            That said I expect they will learn from it and turn it around in time.

            Nothing is better than a balanced sox/yanks series.

    That was a great trade/salary dump.

    Yes, for the most part. However, in recent seasons, they had a strong bench; now they have a collection of washed up firstbasemen.

    Hello nhsteven    :)

    I disagree with Mitch Williams.  

    Two games down with 160 to go.  Anything can happen.  

    I'm sure in early Sept of 2011, everyone were counting the Rays and Cardinals out.

             It really was.

            Got a couple of young pitching prospects and salary relief to boot.

            Saw a little of Beckett last night. Even a trimmed down version gets waxed.

             Andy looked every bit the Pro last night.

             He stopped the bleeding for a team that needed it badly.
