09:36 AM ET 03.31 | The Yankees are well aware of the doomsday scenarios being painted by the media and the legion of self-loathing fans. To them, it's nothing but noise. "Apparently there are a whole lot of people doubting we are going to win any ballgames this year," said Andy Pettitte, who will start the third game of the season against the Red Sox. "I don't let my mind go in that direction. I think we are going to win our division and I expect us to be in the World Series. I feel like we have the pitching and the bullpen to do that."

I think he is saying we can pitch but we cannot hit. I agree.

"... I expect us to be in the World Series.."
Is he back on drugs?

QUOTE(#4):

there have been recent WS winning teams that had as little/less offense than NY. NY has lacked CLUTCH the last decade. though on paper the guys we lost/got hurt were better- they haven't been clutch, so........who knows

Every team starts the season with an equal chance of making it all the way.

If the Yanks pull off the impossible and make it the series I know two managers who will be fired, Gibbons and Scioscia.

It seems as IF andy pettitte has been working as a motivator aside from been a starter, all in all got to do what you got to do,,,,

the yankees will need hitting and a tough disciplined lineup in the yankees team, lets not forget the pitching win games but we need to score runs in order to win games,,,

just IF Youkillis hit more than 300 avg/and hit 35 to 40 homeruns in the yankees team, just IF vernon wells break's open and hit 3oo and hit 40 homeruns in the bronx, just IF the injury players( granderson/texeira/arod) are able to return without any delay towards the yankees weak lineup? yanks very well would be tough in their own division,,,,

IF the yankees pull the right moves and turn the impossible to possible, likely the managers WHO would be hitting the road,,,will be the dodgers manager, and the angels manager, why? the dodgers still hesitant in their games as it is, the angels aren't looking better than last year though,,,,,

March 31, 2013  11:57 AM ET

angels still getting 5 hits per game and 1 or two runs per game, should that production in runs would be enough?? doubtfull, there are teams and lineups WHO likely will score more than 7 runs per game and halos aren't a team who could score that many runs in every game,,,,,

the halos may be better with CONGER behind the plate than ieanetta, who knows? the angels need a offensive catcher in their lineup, honestly chris iannetta has not done anything good for the team in his last two seasons,,should conger carry the team's offense behind the plate and in the plate?? things could yurn up interested,,,

QUOTE(#16):

Wonder if Petite will even start 15 games this year?

Only IF the yankees manager use him in the starter rotation five innings per game,,
