In response to slomag's comment:
It's already underway. Their run differential is +16, Youk's on the DL, Wells is Wells again, Pettitte's unhappy. I've been wrong about the Yankees before, but can anybody look at the Yankees and the AL East objectively and say this is the team we should be worrying about?
Pettite's unhappy? About his last two outings maybe.
Nunez, Youk, Joba, Nova and Cervelli the latest to go onto the DL.
Pitching has been good so far.
Not only that but the guys who have been brought up from the farm have contributed.
Warren, Claiborne and Nuno.
Phelps has pitched well in place of Nova and long relief out of the pen.
Sean Kelly is stepping up. Last night, Kelley faced seven hitters and struck out six of them. In his past three outings, he’s allowed one hit, no walks and struck out nine though 4.1 innings.
We should see Granderson next week, and Nova, Nunez and Joba.
