  1. Mike Pop says:

    Gotta go with 9, the Yanks are the best babay!

    /Dick Vitale’d.

    • The Artist says:

      I have been since Spring Training. I don’t get why anyone would change their assessment of a team in the middle of April.

      • Zack says:

        I agree you cant change in the middle of April, but you cant have blind faith all year*

        *i.e) Red Sox fans saying that DiceK won 18 games last year so when he returns next week he’s going to be that pitcher

        • The Artist says:

          No, but you also can’t be a yo-yo and want the manager fired because the team has the nerve to be 2 games over .500 on May 1st. If you assess the team critically in ST and understand it’s a long season, you should stick to your guns. Barring major injuries, of course.

        • Andy In Sunny Daytona says:

          Diasuke will be a big game pitcher in the NY/Penn league playoffs. You’ll see.

      • Jake H says:

        I’ve been no lower then an 8. That is what I started out at the beginning of the year. I went to a 9 when the SP straightened out and the BP got good.

  2. Zack says:

    It’s 9, and it’s been like that for awhile.

  3. Andy In Sunny Daytona says:

    “Well round here, between Normandie and Western, we call this here a little Tenny ten ten…”

  4. The Artist says:

    I know I’m getting WAYYYY ahead of things here, but the thought of a Yanks-Cards or Yanks-Phillies World Series is something I’m already getting excited about. ESPN did a piece today about Yanks-Cards.

    BTW-No, I don’t believe in jinxes, or that anything I type on a messageboard will change anything.

  5. The Artist says:

    Anyone else think we should be more worried about the Tigers with Verlander-Jackson going than the awful Angels rotation or the broken down Sox starters?

    I’m starting to come around to this line of thinking, myself.

  6. Pasqua says:

    I’m feeling like a 9 overall, but an 8 for the immediate future. Not crazy about the pitching matchups against Tampa. I always like CC, but with the way Burnett and Joba have been going — and throw in a Gaudin start — I’m hoping we don’t hit a bump in the road.

  7. Dela G says:

    I’ve been a ten since the 4 game sweep, and will def stay that way unless something ludicrous happens

  8. Randy A. says:

    Mike, good job making Rob Neyer taste metal. He must be one of the writers who still holds the NL equal to the AL

  9. Johnnyboy says:

    I heard that Gardner and Duncan were called up. Can anyone confirm this?
