Yankees and Phillies

The Yankees and Phillies face off today in Spring Training. Nick Swisher believes these teams will meet in the World Series. The season is a long one. I wanted to make a quick post with a question: are the Yanks and Phils the best teams in their respective leagues in 2012?

  1. I don’t think the Yanks are even the best team in their division. I rank them third behind Tampa Bay and the Red Sox. But the Phillies might well be the best team in the N.L. If they get decent hitting, their incredible pitching staff could lead them all the way.

    • I don’t know if I place the Yanks third, but the Red Sox appear to be the better team. Of course many, including myself said the same thing last season. There are two variables I see right from the beginning: Bobby Valentine and A-Rod. The player’s response to Valentine will be the catalyst, good or bad, for the Red Sox. What version of A-Rod shows up in 2012 will be significant for New York. I think for New York to contend, more is needed from Rodriguez.

      As of right now, I’ll pick the Phillies as NL Champs.

      As always, thanks for the response and retweet!
