If any team in all of MLB wants to forget 2013 it would be the New York Yankees and their fans. The end of the season did bring an awesome few moments with the retirement of Mariano Rivera and Andy Pettitte. The start of 2014 should be a great deal more exciting however. Here are a few reasons why.
Gardner might not have been a major factor in the few years he has spent with the Yankees but he almost left this offseason. The fact that the trade did not happen and that the Yankees seem more committed to him than ever could trigger a career year for the outfielder.
Beltran is not a guarantee for 30 home runs and 100 RBI for the regular season but he is certainly an ace in the hole for the postseason. This Yankees team looks to be bound for the playoffs and when they get there Beltran will be shining once again.
Things might not be as easy for Tanaka in MLB as they were in his native country but you can bet that hitting him will not be easy either. If what we have seen so far indicates the kind of player he is going to be then things are looking great for the fans of the Yankees.
Without a doubt the addition of McCann fills a hole that very much needed filling. If anyone can transition from down south to the big city of New York without messing up his career it is McCann. Look for a solid and leadership filled season for the Yankees new catcher.
Jeter is the easiest thing to be pumped about this year. He is back, he is healthy and he is absolutely jacked about his final MLB season. The Captain should be at his best all season long which will mean his team will be as well. That is more than enough reason to be thankful for any Yankees fan alive.
