The Yankees are still the best team in the American League without any questions.
They are bringing back all of the key players that helped them capture a Major League best 103 win season, and a World Series title a season ago.
The moves they made in the offseason, although unpopular amongst Yankee fans, have been very wise. They refused to re-sign aging outfielder Hideki Matsui and Johnny Damon for top dollars, and instead traded for one of the best young center fielders in the game in Curtis Granderson.
On top of that they've added another solid pitching arm by trading for Javier Vazquez at the expense of center fielder Melki Cabrera. The addition of Vazquez, makes the Yankee rotation one of the most dangerous in the league along with CC Sabathia, A.J. Burnett, Andy Pettitte, and Joba Chamberlain.
Not to mentioned that they still have the best lineup in the American League with Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter, and Mark Teixeira, and a bullpen led by Mariano Rivera.
A-Rod, Sabathia, Burnett, Granderson and Teixeira, and second baseman Robinson Cano are all in their prime and there will be no stopping this team.
No team in the American League is as complete as the New York Yankees who will win the American League East, and then head back to the world series.
