14-1 odds on winning the 2013 World Series. Over/Under for wins next season is 87.5. So, basically a 88-74 season would be about right. 95-67 was the Yankees record last year, and 93-69 was the record of the two wild card teams.

They are within striking distance of the playoffs now. The Yankees are having issues with A-Rod, and are an aging team. The Blue Jays already had a good core of hitters to build around but lacked starting pitching. They have addressed that need in a big way with this trade. They were a .500 team until the injury bug hit this team in a big way. I think that if things go right, they are definitely a division title threat or at least could sneak into the wild card game.
