Yankees offseason moves team in right direction

The New York Yankees are going into the 2016 season with the team in a great position to go further than a wildcard bid to the playoffs.  The franchise has assembled what SB Nation’s Pinstripe Ally calls

“…the best bullpen in baseball without sacrificing significant value.”

With both Alex Rodriguez and Carlos Beltran back in the lineup, expect more power hitting from the club.  Rodriguez had 33 homers last season, Beltran 19.

CF Jacoby Ellsbury
LF Brett Gardner
RF Carlos Beltran
1B Mark Teixeira
DH Alex Rodriguez
C Brian McCann
3B Chase Headley
