You know winter is coming to an end when Spring Training begins in Florida and Arizona. Sure we all love our winter sports like football and hockey, but nothing beats the nightly ball game and a cigar with your favorite adult beverage. As a Yankees fan this spring is a little different then the past. We knew who our 5 starters were, who was going to make up the bullpen and the only position up for grabs was utility infielder. This year as a fan of the Bronx Bombers things are a little different. Who will be the backup catcher, who will fill out 4 and 5 in the rotation and who will win the 4th OF slot as well as the utility infielder. It’s that time of the year to make predictions so here we go.
AL East: Boston Red Sox
AL Central: Minnesota Twins
AL West: Oakland Athletics
Wildcard: New York Yankees
NL East: Philadelphia Phillies
NL Central: Cincinnati Reds
NL West: San Diego Padres
Wildcard: San Francisco Giants
World Series Champions: Boston Red Sox
Of course I reserve the right to make a change if the Yankees manage to go out and get a starting pitcher before opening days.
