No, I don't think they have the pitching to pull it off.

Agreed! With Wang out until late September, I don't think Darrell Rasner and Sidney Ponson at the back of your rotation is going to help you get it done. In addition, I do not think Pavano will help much when he returns and the verdict is still out on Hughes...plus he is out until September as well.

I must say that I am surprised at the continued lack of faith in the Rays!

The real question is: Will they not not make it?
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Haha, this question is asked every year after the Yankees have a mediocre first half and a killer second half of the season. I am a huge Yankee fan so I am obviously biased, but it's the freakin' Yankees we're talking about, we'll make the playoffs, I guarantee it.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

As someone who's always admonished the naysayers on the Yankees, this year however I'm not quite so sure. In previous years, despite the relatively low place the Yankees might've held at this time in the standings, they weren't placed there with an injured Wang, Matsui, Posada, all whom remain questionable for the season. They've lost Phil Hughes to injury as well, and are at this point, their rotation is being anchored by Mussina.

So for the first time in 14 years, I'm not quite so sure the Yankees might make the playoffs this time around.

They will make the moves necessary to improve upon their pitching.

It's a fair question. The Yankees definitely don't has as formidable a line-up as years past. I still think they'll make it though.

Even if they do, they are not going very far.

Well said. Was wondering if anyone would mention Matsui and Posada. Yankees offense will rely to much on the stars that are left and they simply can't come through every game.
