    I'm not sure about Ryu be close to as good as Cole but whatever helps u sleep at night.

    The Jay's offensive look like it could be top 5 but after RYU their pitching is thin both in the rotation and BP. Yes our rotation is injury prone but talent wise comparing the two pitching staffs, it's not, close

    I somehow think the Rays will be the 2nd place to this yr. Their farm is so stacked and most of their talent I in high a and up. They ll get full seasons from Arozarena, McKay and most of a season from Franco and the top pitching spec they gott back for Snell should be ready or close.. its not hard to see the Rays patch working a rotation and the overall talent they have to win 90 games

    I have to disagree about the rotation behind cole . The talent behind him is questionable for the most part . I mean no one has any idea what to expect from them . And when was the last time a team cruised to a division with 3 starters that have had 4 tommy john surgeries in the last 5 years ? I am not saying the jays have as good a rotation as the yanks do behind cole but to say it’s not even close is over estimating a group of question marks and lottery tickets . I mean this is the same blue jays team that finished just 1 game behind the Yankees last season .and now the Yankees are without Tanaka and Paxton. As for the rays I can definitely see them being an above .500 team but unless their rotation is lights out again , I find it hard to believe that they are good for more than 82 or 83 wins . And if both the jays and rays finish above .500 which I think is a decent possibility, then don’t expect the Yankees to win 100 games .

    I previously gave my risk adjusted prediction of 94 with hope for more, but since several posters are giving various scenarios, I could do the same. in fact, I actually believe with the continual stream of positive news that we have been receiving that on positive days I believe that they will win 102 games, so I'm keeping 94 for the floor and 106 for the apex. How's that for a definite maybe. LOL.

    Well Johnny you must also consider the weather, don't forget about full moons, day games in August, sleep cycles on west coast trips, hangovers, lay overs and bad left overs.... I'm sure I missed 100 or so, but rest assured Nicky has taken them all into consideration.

    I believe healthy this is easily the best team in the AL East and just a bit ahead of the CWS and Twins for the entire AL. If Toronto can get their top pitching specs to the MLB this yr then they would be trouble but there pitching looks like its a yr plus away. Besides us if another AL East team wins 90+ games they are playing above expectations.

    To me it all comes down to if we can avoid long injuries, everybody is going to miss a few games here and there, its avoiding the 30+ days IL visits will make all the difference.

    I'm not seeing those 5 games. I see 6 with the Mets, 4 with the Braves and Phillies and 3 with the the Nats and Marlins.

    Jays are the team that worries me for the next 5 years.

    Rays will fall back for sure but I still think they could be an annoyance to the Yankees , I remember a few years ago when the rays weren’t a very good team , the gave the yanks fits .

    If we can stay "reasonably" healthy (and we sure are due for that) this team can easily win 102 games. That's all I ask for. If we're healthy everything else will fall nicely into place

    Runner, don't be a stranger. Always good to see you post.

    I would agree with the health, I imagine most here would (save for one Eeyore). I like the inherent optimism in 102 wins. Imo alot will depend on what they get from Kluber and Tallion. How much Sevy is able to contribute. Garcia, Monty, German, King, Schmidt will all battle for innings and the 5th spot. Nice problem to have. A six man rotation is possible early in season due to lack of innings last year. I heard it mentioned during on air interview with Boone. He didn't endorse the idea, but he also didn't deny the possibility.
