The Season: 2011
It's a new day, a new year boys and girls. Opening day is here again!
This year the Yanks come in sort of underdogs. The Red Sox had a huge off-season and of course are the favorites to win the AL East. The Rays how've been the upstarts have been raided and lost many pieces, can they still hang with the big boys?
Will Robinson Cano continue his upswing and be the new face of the Franchise? Alex looked young again in Spring Training, will that trend continue? Was Mark Teixiera's 2010 season a fluke? Or a sign of things to come? Can Larry Rothschild fix Aj Burnett? How will PJ Hughes follow up his 18 win season? Will the bullpen be as dominant as people predict? What can we expect from Joba? Will Mo tell anyone else where the Fountain of Youth is?
A lot of questions need answering and it's sure to be an exciting season once again!!
"After my fourth season I asked for $43,000 and General Manager Ed Barrow told me, 'Young man, do you realize Lou Gehrig, a 16-year-man, is playing for only $44,000?' I said, Mr. Barrow, there is only one answer to that - Mr. Gehrig is terribly underpaid."- Yankees outfielder Joe DiMaggio
