And you're a typical Yankees fan who thinks the sun rises and sets in the Bronx. This isn't 2000, and the Yanks aren't the ruling dynasty they once were. This Yankees team is getting old and brittle, and regardless if they problems are due to injury or not, the problems are still there. I'm not "bashing" the Yankees, because, as I stated earlier, I couldn't care less about them - I'm neutral the whole way. As a non-participant, outside observer, they just aren't that great anymore. I'd put them in the same category this year as Texas or Milwaukee - and maybe even a little below the Brewers at that.
Blah blah blah. They are in a far better position this year than they were in 07. You can count them out but they will be right in there.
Anyone counting the Yankees out in the second half of the season is a fool. They will hit better in the 2nd half and will score more runs. A-Rod was out for a while, Cano has stunk so far and Matsui has been hurt. All very good reasons why they have been in the middle of the pack. The Wang injury hurts as does Hughes, but Mussina and Pettitte have held up well and Joba has the makings of a true stud. As much as it pains me to say so, the original argument here that the Yanks are average (did I read correctly that they might not even be as good as the Rangers???) is laughable. I don't agree with Yoda on much, but I agree with him here...they will be in the run for the division down the stretch. Count on it.
