I hate to say it but the Yankees are still going to be a force. They will figure out a way to get through until the end of July then go find another pitcher. (Maybe even Petitte himself or how about Pedro?) They still have one of the toughest lineups around and if Teixeira can have a decent start they will be better.
Problem is so will most of the rest of the division. I think Baltimore is better. Boston certainly got better. Tampa is not better but they are still good. Toronto is no slouch.
Should be an interesting race.
