Better Know a Playoff Team: New York Yankees

New, 12 comments



Here are your Two Truths and a Lie about the New York Yankees, who had the best record in baseball at 103-59.

1) This year's Yankees team had the youngest pitching staff of any Yanks team in 14 years, and its youngest lineup of the last 6 years.

2) The team's 3 big offseason acquisitions, Mark Teixeira, CC Sabathia, and A.J. Burnett, combined to be worth 14.7 wins above replacement, or $66.1 million. Including their huge signing bonuses, the trio earned a combined $64.5 million this season.

3) Alex Rodriguez is the primary reason the Yankees haven't won a World Series since 2000.

So what do you think? Is this their year? Will A-Roid finally show up in October? Will you be joining BubbaFan in rooting on the boys in pinstripes?
