Yanks and Astros are favorite over Sox, but I think There’s a slight chance we could again shock the world and 4peat as AL East Champs. But who’s our closer?

3. CC Sabathia (Yankees) in his final season, does not win 13 games

4. Aaron Judge (Yankees) hits under 48HR

5. Gary Sanchez (Yankees) hits under .275

Playing it safe I see. only one catcher hit over 275 last year lol, of course Sanchez won't. Its cc's last year I would definitely give him 10, 13 may be a stretch. Judge will hit 35 if he's healthy.  Disagree with #2, 6, &7.  Lastly who is Ryan Brasier????

Brasier is a journeyman reliever. Played massive role in playoffs. He may get 20-30 saves but I said 10+.

You don’t think Betts can finish top 6 for 4 straight years? You must be banking on injury.

Benny will get his due for gold glove this year, for ripped off last year.

E Rod was 13-5 last year with tons of injuries and missed starts. He’s a # 5 guy and will win a ton of games if healthy. More than CC. Book it!

No gold glove for best defensive player in all of MLb at any position? Are you on crack? Or assuming season ending injury in April?

Yankees fans: Bird or voit at 1b?

Voit at 1st. I think he will really raise some eyebrows this year.

Voit is a beast! squats over 500 lbs benches 365. I always thought Greg bird looked like a strung out junkie

Bird 

I hope he stays healthy for a left handed bat in the lineup. You can even come up with a scenario where bird isn't on the 25 opening day depending on how many pitchers they keep. I hope he doesn't turn into Nick Johnson.

Since coming to the Yanks, he's been a 25 HR type of hitter and plays plus defense in CF.  For $10 million a year it seems fair.  WAR is all the rage and he's a 3-4 WAR player.  I think his age 36 season will not look as worth while but it's like deferred salary.
