Winning the World Series is nothing new to the New York Yankees, The MLB’s most famous franchise has won plenty of them. But not lately. So that makes last season World Series win a milestone marker for the franchise.
But don’t be surprised of Yankees fans are asking for another. Nothing less than a World Series win will do for these fans. And it looks like the Yankees have a good shot at doing it. New York can boast of a starting pitching rotation that features three C.C. Sabathia, winner of 19 last season, A. J. Burnett, a 13 game winner, and Andy Pettitte. In relief Mariano Rivera is as good as any in the MLB. Throw in an All Star cast playing infield defense and a solid if not spectacular outfield and you can bet the New York Yankees will be in the running come October.Eric Drouant
