Here’s a prediction: If the 2006 Yankees do not have at least three members of their starting rotation make 30+ starts this year, they will not reach the World Series. Why? Check the history of the Torre Era:
Other than 2000, any time the Torre-Yankees have failed to have at least 3 SP with 30+ starts, they have not reached the Series. And, for the record, in 2000, Cone and El Duque each had 29 starts – so, they came very close to getting three pitchers with at least 30 in that season.
