For the first time in a long time the Yankees are not the favorite to win the American League East. Their new fiscally conservative attitude along with their age and mounting injuries make it hard for many people to believe they will be one of the last teams left standing, let alone the last team However, their strong pitching staff and the fact that they have "been there" and "done that" make it hard for many people not to pick them to go deep into the playoffs.
My new colleagues and I reflect both of these opinions. Here are our predictions for the 2013 New York Yankees:
Christina Brown: First Wild Card; World Series Champions
Vivianna Velazquez: AL East Champions; World Series Champions
Bernadette Pasley: Second Wild Card: American League Division Series Appearance
What do you think?
Coming up later this week: The remaining AL divisions and the NL.
