    Wow..LOL.

    Talk about being optimistic!

    CC's numbers look about right.
    Kuroda will net 14 wins
    Hughes 15 wins
    Nova 13 wins
    Garcia 12 wins
    Pettitte, I don't see 25 games out of him so I'll say under 10 wins.
    Pineda 13 wins

    I think we'll see better overall numbers from Tex.
    Grandy's HR total is on par as last year but he won't hit .280+
    ARod's AVG may be up, but I doubt he hits 40+ HR.
    Jeter, under .300

    Cano .320 + 30HR

    Will we see Joba this year? Banuelos? Betances?

    Anyone have Bill James numbers for the Yanks this year?
    "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

    95 wins, will win division. I also predict a bounce back by Arod but not 44 HRs.
    I think walks are overrated unless you can run. If you get a walk and put the pitcher in a stretch, that helps, but the guy who walks and cant run, most of the time hes clogging up the bases for somebody who can run. Dusty Baker.

    I forgot Cano. LOL. I would say 30-35 Hrs and .320. He is int he mode of proving himself for a 18-20 million dollar a year contract.

    And yes maybe a bit optimistic. LOL. Yet, potentially we will see.

    Tex is not old yet but getting there. His three consecutive years of declining numbers is becoming worrisome. Needs to get back on track this year.

    bis power numbers have been great last season. 39 hrs is the tied second most of his career only once he hit more. It's just his average drooping down a lot. Seems like he has turned into Adam Dunn ( the normal one not the 2011 version). tons Of Ks but good power. I think he will remain a .250 hitter but with good power.
