The Yankees’ World Series Chances

The Yankees’ seem to have what it takes to make a deep postseason run this year. After an eventful offseason that saw the team make several key acquisitions, they have put together one of the most complete rosters in recent memory. With a strong starting pitching rotation, a deep bullpen, and a lineup filled with power and speed, they have all the ingredients necessary to make a run at the World Series title.

The biggest question mark for the team heading into the season is their health. Several key players are coming off of injuries and it remains to be seen how well they will recover. If they can stay healthy, there is no reason why they cannot be one of the last teams standing in October.
