    Eight, like always. The present roster is pretty good, though it has too much money tied up in relievers and is short a starter. Still, the team should be able to compete. The future is looking bright as ever with a vastly improved farm system, though the system could use some more potentially impactful position players.

  • Matt Warden

    7 until the rotation is firmed up and then back to 8.

    • zzzzz

      agreed. make it a 9 if the farm system (pitching prospects) is kicking ass at the all-star break. why not?

      • Simon

        I second that, just give us maybe a decent innings-eater and it’ll be an 8.

  • bpdelia

    seven as usual. I have 80% confidence that they make the playoffs this year. ANd going forward 75% confidence that the system will keep the team a playoff team for the next 5 years

    6, Mitre ans Nova are starters.

    My vote is 8. The Yankees can be competitive with their everyday lineup and bullpen. I can’t go higher until the quality 4th corner OF is secured. I could live with Pena and or Nunez especially Nunez to give Arod, Jeter and Cano some rest. It may help him to develop.

    If a trade could be completed for a #4/5 coupled with Nova or by committee AAA replacement. I would be fine. Its not going to get much better until July.

    I would not trade Montero. He has a spot at DH and part time catcher in 2012. I know Jeter ad Arod need DH duties down the road but thats where the part time catcher comes,

  • Mike HC

    9. We have a dominant bullpen, excellent offense and I am confident we will not only find a competent starter to compete for a job this off season, but also a legitimate above average starter by the all star break. Combine that with all the talented arms we have in the minors, and I am quite confident.

  • Bob Stone

    I second that thought. Those are my sentiments exactly.

    Mark me down for 9 as well.
