The Rangers have never been a team that performs well with expectations and this spring they will play with expectations they haven’t had in 21 years.
The wait for the playoffs to begin seems like forever, but the Rangers are set up perfectly for a long run into the late spring and that makes it worth the wait.
The mentality has changed for Rangers fans thanks to the Stanley Cup Final run last season and now this spring it’s Stanley Cup or bust for the Rangers.
The Yankees and Red Sox meet for the first time in 2015 this weekend and once again it brings up question of why A-Rod is hated, but David Ortiz is loved by baseball fans.
From 2000-2009, obviously no one had more saves for the Yankees than Mariano Rivera, but the pitcher with the second-most saves during that time was his former setup man Steve Karsay.
It’s a new era of Yankees baseball this season and it’s also a new era for Bald Vinny, Roll Call and the Bleacher Creatures in Section 203.
It’s time to look at the 2015 Yankees with some over/unders to get a better sense of what type of season we can expect in the Bronx.
The only thing that needs to happen between now and Opening Day is that the Yankees stay healthy, but they seem to be having a hard time doing so.
The Yankees over/under numbers for win is 82.5 and that’s because the level of comfort entering this season feels exactly the way it did for the last two years.
Opening Day is now a week away, so it’s time to check in down in Tampa with the latest from spring training before the games actually matter.
