Leaving aside which team will have the better W-L record, it's not delusional
to see the AL East end like this--enhanced by Granderson going down:

Jays
Orioles
Rays
Yanks
Sox

I'm also picking my Mets (sigh) for 4th, but if the Yanks slip into last, we could finish ahead of them. Not that that means anything.

(Expect 24/7 Granderson on sports radio. Ugh.)

Question may be ... can the Yankees finish as high as the Mets. Fun year to find out.

The Yankees will finish 3rd at the worst. The Orioles won't be as good as last year and I can see Toronto failing.

Yankees are in trouble, they are a team that lives and dies by the Home Run and on opening day they will be missing 162 Home runs from their 2012 lineup.

Short answer...no. If everything went right, we might have a chance except the Yankees will spend whatever it takes to put a winner on the field. We won't

" except the Yankees will spend whatever it takes to put a winner on the field. We won't"

Is that is why they let Rafael Soriano, Nick Swisher, Hiroki Kuroda, Russel Martin and Raul Ibanez get signed by other teams this year?

Mets are considered cheap for letting Scott Hairston who hit 20 HRs sign with another team, yet the Yankees let Ibanez 19 HRs, Martin 21 HRs and Swisher 24 HRs all get signed by other teams.

Just watch, the Yankees payroll is going to be under 170M next year and Yankee fans are going to panic.

Maybe it will be a Yankees version of the 2009 Mets
already they got Aroid and Granderson out
if they lose a couple more they could be in really big trouble.

They also let Soriano go to the Nats so they are betting everything on Mariano bouncing back.

The real question is, can the Yahnkees finish as low as the Mets.

No way. They have Joba Chamberlain on their roster.

Not a fair comparison. Swisher got a $13MM offer. Martin batted 199 the second half and was looking for a big contract. Ibanez is pushing 40. Hairston was available at a more reasonable price than any and we never made an attempt to keeep him. $2MM for one year was more insult than offer. I hate the Yankees but we'd be a contender if we spent have what they do. Besides, it doesn't hide the fact that we did nothing but trade a Cy Young award winner.
