According to many of the media pundits and some of my fellow bloggers, CC Sabathia is a huge bust, Tim Lincecum is suffering the "sophomore jinx," and Johan Santana is going to win every game he pitches this season.

Slow down, everyone.

If you're not supposed to get too worked up about Spring Training games, then why should you put a lot of stock into games that are played just a few days after?

The Yankees aren't going to go 0-162, Lincecum isn't going to be terrible, and the Mets aren't going to win every single game. Let's be realistic.
