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.
CC Sabathia has been the most important Yankee since becoming one in 2009, but that’s no longer as the case and there’s a new No. 1 for 2015.
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 only way to think about the 2015 Yankees is positively or it’s going to be a long summer, which makes it easier to do over/unders for the season.
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.
