    The scariest part is still injuries and lack of depth to fill in for them.

    Catcher is already subpar

    I'm not all that confident in Tex at 1st, he seems to be in decline

    Cano at 2B is a critical piece of this team

    Jeter has to decline from last year and his range has to be even worse, isn't he like about the oldest SS ever ( except maybe Ripken) ? I think he will go down at some point ( hopefully not), but he has a screwed and plated together ankle.....as do I, I've never been the same after that injury 6 years ago.

    I expect zero from A-Roid.

    I think the OF is decent if they can play Gardner in CF with Ichiro and Grandy most of the time.

    That pitching staff better be great for this team to win 85+ games and eke out a playoff spot.

    What's it to you?

    Re: 2013 New York Yankees Season Long Discussion Thread

    for those of you who are thinking that teix will come back and actually produce, you got another thing coming to you

    wrist injuries are tricky, and knowing his recent injury history, i wouldn't be surprised if this is something that hampered him all season long

    Re: 2013 New York Yankees Season Long Discussion Thread

    I think the Yankees are going to struggle to find their stride but still be in the race around the ASB, and then take off when Pineda and A-Rod come back.

    Is that overly optimistic? Probably, but the team still has a very good rotation and a deep bullpen to keep them in the race while the offense finds itself. And hey you don't know, maybe Boesch will be hot for the month that Granderson is out, Youkilis hits like the Youkilis of old, Hafner stays healthy, and Ichiro in the second half of last year will be the Ichiro this year. Jeter stays healthy and Cano does what Cano does.


    It's not out of the realm of possibility, it's just very bleak.

    Wow.
    I'm still holding out hope that they go with Mustelier at 3B, Youk at 1B, and Rivera in LF, but the Boesch signing probably makes that less likely.

    What's a Boesch and where did he come from? (Is Girardi's plan really to bat Ichiro 3rd? I'm scrambling trying to sort out the line-up for JDP and Lou's contest)

    Wow.
    That seems close at the outset, though I think Francisco still could lose out to Musty or perhaps even Neal or Mesa. Diaz seems pretty done, and may be released soon.

    After opening day, however, I think that Jeter will be the DH and Nunez the SS against lefty starters, so there will effectively be a Hafner/Nunez platoon for awhile as well, at least until further developments.

    I think I have changed my lineup 13 times already and still have 13 1/2 hours to change again.

    I really do not think Pineda or A Rod will be a factor at all. I'm hoping Pineda is back in form for next season. Anyway the starting rotation is the one area that is not a problem for this season. Not really expecting much from A rod either this season.

    Why is this surprising? They had several RHed mediocre, spare-part OFers, but no viable spare-part from the left side, only two regular OFers until Grandy returns. And the Stadium of course favors LHed power. Boesch allows them to have a mediocre platoon, which is better than a mediocre every day player.

    A lefty first baseman to platoon with Rivera would also have helped, but Rivera may be less of a defensive liability at first than in left. I wish Rivera could be platooned as well, but there probably are not enough slots on the 25 man roster even if some mediocre lefty first bagger became available. (Johnson seems below mediocre this spring, by the way.)

    Why? Isn't it a prediction contest? Why should the former be relevant?

    Because there's always a chance he actually does go with (what I think is) the best lineup.

    totally agree, but isn't it "another think" coming instead of "thing" ?

    Your own link has "another thing coming" as an alternative form.
    40 pitchers, ever, have an ERA+ of 130 or higher for their career. 15 have 140 or higher. 3 guys have 150 or higher - one is right at 150, the second place guy is at 154, and Mariano Rivera is at 205.
