There’s agreement on the problems. An aging and injury prone line-up.
While Jeter and Rivera have recovered A-Rod is still convalescing. Will the bodies of these three continue to hold up?
Then there’s the payroll restraints, some due to A-Rod’s mega-deal.
But this is still a very good and talented team. For starters Robinson Cano is exceptional and Yankees should dig deep to keep him.
The top three in the Yankees rotation are the best in a while.
So the Yankees will probably make the playoffs and experience will win out over the greater youth and vigor of rival teams. Thanks to the Bleacher Report for their insights.
