It is the eve of Opening Day and maybe the world is going upside down. Not only do many baseball writers and analyst think the Yankees won’t win the division or get a playoff spot, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports thinks they may finish in (gulp!) LAST PLACE!!??
For someone who is a fan of the smallest market team in baseball in the Milwaukee Brewers this is refreshing. The Brewers look to be solid and should on paper compete for at least a playoff sport. The Yankees may actually have more AAA players playing games early on thanks to the long list of players on the DL including Jeter, ARod, Teixeira, and Granderson. That is a whopping $80 million in salary who won’t be starting the season!
I can’t remember the last time the Brewers actually have a chance to be better than the Yankees. Maybe the era of buying your way to a championship in baseball is really over!
Time will tell….
