Season Previews: New York Yankees


With pitchers and catchers reporting to Spring Training camps this week, it's time for one of our favorite things in all the world: Season Previews. Three years ago, they began as a semi-serious analysis and ended up as half-assed haiku. We're just gonna go with what we know. Kicking off our preview of the American League East is none other than the reigning World Champion New York Yankees.

Twenty-seven rings
Girardi's a life-saver
Hot stove blockbuster

Spankin' new ballpark
But Sarah had fun last season!
(Rip-off prices though)

Swish and Randy Winn
Granderson in center field
Gardner gets the shaft

On their to do list?
Jeter and Mariano
Still haven't been paid.

CC will eat you
and he'll eat up innings too
Burnett is bad ass

Joba might relieve
Or he might start a few games
...no one seems to know

Will the Yanks repeat
and win number twenty-eight,
or go home this fall?

Haikus are back! Nice! Can't wait to read the O's one. It's always so... hopeful.

Granderson looks right at home at the New Yankee Stadium.
