Predicting the Stats for the New York Yankees

Derek Jeter New York Yankees Lineup Opening Day
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

After missing the playoffs for the second time in 19 years, the New York Yankees went on a spending spree this offseason. They were decimated by injuries last season, which led to their demise at the plate. They hit .242 as a team, ranking 24th in the majors. Their many additions came with some subtractions. They lost two perennial MVP candidates in Robinson Cano and Curtis Granderson. Now they send out a brand new lineup in 2014.
