Playoff Preview: New York Yankees
Bunch of old men who blew (almost) a 10 game lead to the Baltimore fucking Orioles. They can't win in the playoffs, right? Well, yeah, they can.
All around, this is probably the best team in the playoffs. They certainly have the best offense, and CC and Hiroki Kuroda are going to offer a pretty solid 1-2 punch. That, and they're the Yankees.
I'm not sure what else I need to tell you. With this offense, they're never out of the game. Cano, Jeter, Granderson, Swisher, Ichiro, and even the warm corpses of Teixeira and A-Rod are going to provide enough offense to neutralize any issues that result from the back-end of the rotation.
This is definitely one where we should be able to just sit here and watch nature take it's course... until Joe Girardi gets his hands on the bullpen.
