    As you can see, the last time the Yankees did not hit 200+ homeruns as a team was 2008.  What are the odds that they don’t hit at least 200 homeruns this season?  At this point, it has to be pretty good, no?

      Quite likely, I’d say.

      And the number of runs scored is likely to drop from last year by 30-50 or so.

      @ Evan3457:
      Agree. The offense will not be an asset this year.

      The pitching better be good then…

      I think it will.

      No way that Pettitte makes 30 starts. And, I suspect that CC and Kuroda will not be as good as last year. That puts a lot of pressure on Nova, Hughes and Phelps. And, I don’t trust Nova and Hughes. I don’t share your high hopes.

      Shocker. You haven’t had high hopes for years and have been proven wrong more often than not. I’m fine with your track record of reverse jinxes. :-D

      I think it will do better than people think it will.

      @ Raf:
      That’s Evan’s quote, not mine.
