The Yankees aren't that good right now. They only have one dependable starting pitcher, a giant hole in rightfield, no catcher, a shaky bullpen and a banged-up Jeter, among other problems. Obviously at least some of those issues will be solved come April, but they'll have their share of flaws. Barring an unexpectedly productive winter - which is unlikely given their new payroll-slashing ways - I doubt they'll be slam-dunk favorites come springtime.

If their "big" offseason moves are along the lines of trading for, say, Ricky Nolasco (whom they're rumored to be in on despite his total ineptitude in the NL), re-signing Ichiro and Martin, and making some cheap bench and bullpen acquisitions, they'll look as vulnerable as they have in a long time.
