Yanks will have quite an offense, but what about pitching? Pitching wins championships. I think the Yanks are 1-2 top level arms away from having the kind of pitching staff that can win a World Series. Hope I am wrong.
There's going to be a lot of home runs and even more strike outs. Relying on the long ball could be an issue. Can't wait to see the young guys. Gleyber Torres, Estevan Florial, Chance Adams, Justus Sheffield, Domingo Acevedo and many more. The amount of depth down on the farm is quite amazing. Scranton should be a hot ticket. I'll go down for at least a dozen games this season.
I agree on the pitching. Hopefully, one or more of the young guys has a breakout season. CC is up there and Tanaka's arm could very well fall off. The bullpen should be fine. Hopefully, Betances can find his groove again. I always thought Girardi overused him early on and then he'd crash near the end of the season.
Aaron Boone has a load of talent at his disposal and I hope he can win early. The NY fans and media will eat him up if he doesn't.
I wouldn't stamp the World Series tickets just yet, but it should be a fun season. Can't wait!!

Any thoughts on McKinney -- having a great spring.
Love this guy! I hope he cracks the opening day roster. If not, he'll be one of the first guys called up when there's an injury. Yet another player I look forward to watching this season.
*Edit: McKinney gets traded to Toronto
