If healthy this year has a lot of wheels and can get himself on base. Ichiro and Jeter are declining. Their bats may still be active (Ichiro hit better when he got to NY) but their d has taken a decline. Range is a factor for them. ARod is starting the year injured and is always hit or miss. Who knows with that guy. Their pitching is also old and on the decline. How many games will they get out of Petite this year? Can Kuroda repeat what he did last year? How will Rivera respond to not pitching for a year? They lost some key guys and haven't replaced them with much in the way of value. The yanks will be good but I highly doubt they'll be great unless they do something no one sees coming in the off season.
Tex has been pretty bad for the last 2-3 years, don't let the team success get to you. What did he bat this year like .250 lol. His numbers like any other Yankee are built up on the porch fence. He's old and declining. Any other ballpark and Tex would have less than 20 HR's IMO Yankee stadium is a joke.
