YANKEE CHANCES

Postby Yankee715 » Fri Apr 04, 2003 8:04 pm

I am a huge Yankee fan so I think there gonna win it all but in every single website and magazine I read not one of them sees the Yankees to win the world series. Its always the A's, Red Sox or the Twins.

A year ago, it would have sounded totally absurd. Not now. The Twins will win the World Series in 2003. -Jayson Stark(ESPN)

It's been since 1918 that the Red Sox last won the World Series. Rob predicts that will all come to an end this season. -Rob Neyer (ESPN)

Well, it's a wide-open field this year, but I think the Yankees have as good a chance as any, Jeter's injury notwithstanding. (In our own Predictions for the season, we were split between the Yankees, the A's and the D-backs. :-) )

Honestly, Arlo, I would be surprised if it were any of the three. Oakland's strategy of high OBP guys backfires in the playoffs when the pitchers don't walk anybody. Randy and Curt are really old and they can't carry a team without an offense. And unless the old guys can last, the Yankees just don't have the pitching that they had in 98.

Well, it's still early days (and those predictions were made well before the season started), but I still think the Yankees have a solid shot - the way they've kept rolling in spite of Jeter's absence has been impressive. I certainly agree with you about their pitching, but the Yankees are sure to be in the running to acquire any solid pitchers who become available later in the year...

We'll see what happens - we may well all wind up being surprised in October once again. Gonna be a whale of a season! ;-D

So far so good I say. Best record in baseball at 25-9 and no signs of slowing down (yet anyway :-) ). The offense has been torrid even with Giambi slumping and Jeter injured, I think Mondesi has done a fantastic job at the bottom of the order wreaking havoc and making things happen. Whether he can keep it up is another story though. Meanwhile the starters have been doing nothing but winning games led by Mussina who will hopefully get his first 20 win season (and possible Cy Young?).

If Boston gets their bullpen woes in order I feel they can be a threat, however until that happens most everyone should agree that the Yanks are still the class of the AL East and expected to win the division.

Magazines and such don't pick the Yanks because fans get mad, because it is the obvious pick.

Surprise surprise...

D-Train and Miguel Cabrera were key factors in this team. That's the main reason as to the Marlins' success.

Who has some hot rookies this year. The last few WS teams have been carried by rooks. Maybe the Pads? Anyone else?
