Expectations for a Hyped Year

It's that time again, ladies and gentlemen. Tomorrow, every baseball fan will offically have a reason to live, and every baseball manager will have a reason to die.

The season begins tomorrow, and it couldn't come soon enough. The offseason was long, and quick, though quite eventful. Big stars were swatted across the leagues, and teams were deprived of their stars.

However, while the rest of the league is uncertain in its progress, there's one team whose season seems to be drawn out for them, and that is my New York Yankees. They picked up a lot of awesome players in the offseason, including:

  • Michael Pineda, in a trade with Seattle

  • Raul Ibanez, in a free agent signing

  • Andy Pettite, after he returned from retirement

  • Hiroki Kuroda, in a free agent signing

Unfortunately, we lost a few players as well, including:

  • Jesus Montero, in a trade with Seattle

  • Jorge Posada, to retirement

  • Bartolo Colon, signed by Oakland

  • AJ Burnett, signed with Pittsburgh

Still, with the roster we've built up, it looks like it'll be a great season. Personally, I'd love to take it all this year. But that's just me.
