Are potentially another bad weekend away from being done and we're only in April. We're talking about 5.5 games back going into a weekend series against 1st place Boston. NYY need desperately to take 2 out of 3. Bottom line they don't have the pitching to make a late run if they are gonna contend they need to start playing better now. However there are no pitchers out there for them to grab, their best pitchers are on the DL and they are relying on rookies to win in the hardest town to win. I don't care how good your offense is if you can't pitch and hold leads you won't win.

All these Yankee fans wanted nothing more than great production from A-Rod. Now they have all-world production out of him, and they can't win a game. There's only one word to describe this situation: GLORIOUS:D:

Couldn't agree more. After Arod that team looks really old. Damon struggling to stay healthy, "the best short stop of all time" I heard someone say has more errors already this season than last, and Rivera can't close games either.

Yes, they are in trouble.

5.5 games back in April? Not nearly the end of the world, especially for the Yankees...

Big difference between the 07 NYY and the 06 Twins. Where is Santana and Liriano? Minnesota had pitching and that was the reason they clawed themselves back into it. The Yanks have no pitching, and as we all know pitching wins.

The Yankees might get one pitcher with 12 wins. Pettitte and Mussina are seemingly closer to their AARP cards than they are to the prime of their careers. The rest of their staff either brings an excellent presence into the trainer's room or are guys barely out of the minors.

The Yankees have lots of reasons to be worried. They can't really loot other teams for high-priced talent because there's not much of it that they'd be able to loot. Nobody on the perennial schmuck team list really has anyone they'd be dying to unload to the Yankees.

For the last time, it wasn't Santana and Liriano that got them to a division title. They got unbelievable years from Punto and Bartlett (they did not start the season with the Twins), Cuddyer broke out, they had the batting champion, and the MVP. A lot of people are forgetting that the Yankees had their two best pitchers on the DL (one is still there). They have enough pitching to win with that lineup. That doesn't mean they're going to do it in the playoffs, but they can definitely fight their way to a division title (or the Wild Card).

The Red Sox are getting unbelievable pitching right now, at the same time. Schilling is a question mark as to if he can stay healthy, Wakefield is a knuckleballer and therefore will always be a question mark, Dice K...I don't care what anyone says, he's a question mark until he proves himself (and by prove, I don't mean four starts), and I still think Josh Beckett is one of the most overrated pitchers in baseball. The Yankees are definitely not done.

From 2003 to 2007, each year the Yankees have absolutely sucked in April. From 2003 to 2007, each year they won the division. I don't see what makes 2007 any different.

The difference this year is they literally have NO pitching. They have no valuable pitching to speak of.

Surely the Yanks/Sawx can't finish 1-2 in the AL East every year. This is a year it won't happen.


The '06 Twins had astronomical pitching. This WILL NOT happen with the '07 Yankees.

The '06 Twins had Santana, and Liriano (and not for long), as well as Radke. Bonser, Garza, and Silva were nothing special.

The Yankees have Wang, Mussina, and then nothing special. The Yankees have enough pitching to compete in that division.

And BTW, the Yankees and Red Sox did not finish 1-2 last year.

While the Yanks/Sawx didn't finish 1-2 last year, that doesn't stop people from having the perennial expectation of having that happen. This year the Yanks will be in 4th

Wang was better than every guy on our staff last year. I must have missed the memo that the Red Sox have a 5-man rotation (or a bullpen, for that matter), and Dice K is a proven MLB pitcher.

I never said that Toronto and Boston did not have better staffs (although Toronto has huge injury risks), but the Yankees still have a better lineup than both. The Yankees will outslug people (which is all they've done this year), with Mussina and Wang, they will win more games.

I'll bet anything the Yankees do not finish 4th. They may not finish on top, but I guarantee that they do not finish 4th.

A-Rod is having one of the finest Aprils ever recorded and they're in LAST place. They just got swept by the Devil Rays...not in a pitching duel, but in a hitters duel. AJ Burnett shut them out tonight. If Hughes, Igawa, Wang, Mussina and Pettitte can bring it to even 3rd in that division, it would be a miracle. Pavano is a non-factor and even if they sign Clemens he won't do what he's been doing the past couple years in the NL.

Steinbrenner is a figurehead at this point because of his health. The heir-apparent of the Yankee organization is in the midst of a divorce with Jennifer Steinbrenner.

The Yankees are in trouble not only for this year, but for the years to come

I'm not against the Yankees finishing 4th in any way, but I just don't see it. Their lineup combined with average starting pitching will get them a lot of wins. If only the race was between the Blue Jays and Orioles, everyone could be happy.

The baseball season is long, so there's still a lot of time. The injury bug that the Yankees have right now, will likely bite both the Red Sox and Blue Jays at some point during the season. Halladay, Burnett, and Schilling are all injury risks; if any of those go down, it could change the whole race. The Yankees are fighting through injuries right now, and it's only the end of April...if they're still struggling in June, then talk to me about them being done; it's too early to say that right now.

And BTW, although the Red Sox swept that series, it's not like they dominated. All three of those games could have went either way.

Please even if Boston sweeps and they fall 8 1/2 back that is nothing

They were 14 1/2 back in July of 1978 and still came back to win it.

NEVER NEVER say they are dead until they are

Agreed. It's nice to see, but it's a mirage. They are a good team. An incredible offense with an average pitching staff. Their lineup is something out of a video game. They are going to score a lot of runs, and a good offense won't get it done in October, but it sure will in the regular season. Their pitchers are hurt now, but once they return, the pitching will stabilize.

Claiming the death of the Yankees in April is the equivalent of claiming that Kobe Bryant is a team player because he had 2 assists in the first quarter.

That is like my hate for the Twins. The Twins are my most hated team in all of sports. Mainly because they always beat us. (Except for 2005) I know the history of the Sox & Yankees, and I remember a article in the 2003 Sun-Times talking about the long history of the Yankees killing the Sox.

You can add me to that sentiment too. I absolutely abhor the Yankees. Their fans are the worst "baseball" people in the world to deal with. They are taught to say "26 Rings" in reply to every chink you point out in their armor.

To see their consistent arrogance and lack of attention to player development and splurge spending on veterans backfire, particularly in respect to pitching, is an absolute joy for me to see.

The Yankees are in trouble not only for this year, but for the years to come I'm getting sad thinking about it.

Jason Stark offers some nuggets

Only one Yankees team in history has ever entered May this many games out and then come back to finish first. And while it may seem encouraging to know that happened just two years ago -- when they emerged from April at 10-14, 6 out -- the bad news is, the team they trailed then was the Orioles, not the Red Sox.


So when was the last time the Yankees were this far behind Boston after April? How about 1912, when they started out 2-10 (while the Red Sox went 9-4). And how did that season turn out? The Red Sox won 105 games and won the World Series. The Yankees lost 102 -- and finished 55 games out of first.
Finally, George Steinbrenner will really be ecstatic to learn that the 1979 Pirates are still the only team since 1935 to lurch out of April more than three games under .500 and survive to win a World Series.


I think Torre is under a very short leash. The key to NYY's season maybe coming in about 2 weeks.

After the Yankees leave USCF they have 3 at Shea and then 3 at home with Boston. If they falter then THEY ARE DONE
