Even without the injured guys, they aren’t dreadful, and they just have to tread water until the injured guys come back. No team in the AL East projects to be dominant, so the Yankees shouldn’t drift too far out of the race. Their odds are the lowest they’ve been in some time, sure, but their odds remain reasonable, legitimate. They’re not that much worse than the Blue Jays, and the Jays are considered by many the favorites.
Basically the point I've been trying to make in this thread.
1ST..Johnson/texiera(wrist injuries are a problem for any hitter)
SS...Jeter...future HOF, but is 38 and coming off a bad broken ankle
3RD...Youk...lol..Im not going to even bother..oh ya and plastic hip might come back some time.
Center..Gardner...missed alot of time last season with an elbow problem, ceterfield needs a throwing arm.
Right...Ichiro...38 yrs old?...this isn't the same ichiro that seattle enjoyed for all those years....
DH..Vs rt...Hafner...200 AB's a season hafner, well I am impressed
DH..Vs lft..Nunez...skilled player, will be a super utility, bad defence...
P1..CC..bone spurs last season, 32 yrs old and has logged tons of innings in the last 5 seasons
P2..Kuroda..Solid..39 yrs old?...
P3..Pettit..40yrs old...injury prone
P4..Huges...bulging disk in back
P5..They don't know
Closer...First ballot HOF'ER, 42 yrs old, tore acl last season, you need your legs to pitch
I could care less what fangraphs says, this is an old beat up lineup, show me another team like this, that u think can compete with the big boys of today. And who ever said there not that much worse then the jays needs to loose his job. Must be another Yankee homer...
