The yankees have had a rather ho-hum spring training, very average at best. The starting rotation hasn’t been great. Even CC has been hit hard. Everyone thinks the pre-season means nothing and everything will turn around on April 4th. It doesn’t usually happen that way. A lack of momentum carries over into the regular season and it will take some time and considerable effort to get it turned around. We make excuses for everyone because “they have a slow start usually” etc. etc. I don’t have a real confident feeling in this year’s yankees. There are a couple of weak spots in the lineup and the starting rotation really needs to start pitching like they’re capable of pitching. A couple of key injuries and we could be in real trouble. The RAys are going to be a tough opponent this year.
