Bottom line, the Yankees are the defending World Series champions.

I think they have a very good shot for pulling off the repeat. The Yankees lost Hideki Matsui, Johnny Damon, Melky Cabrerea and a great prospect in outfielder Austin Jackson, however they did bring in Curtis Granderson, Javier Vazquez, Randy Winn, and Nick Johnson.

The Yankees now have a bolstered rotation, but they still need their older guys like closer Mariano Rivera and catcher Jorge Posada. Posada is getting older and his numbers need to stay where they’re at if he wants to be effective this year.

Rivera is also getting older but he is coming off a 44 save season.

The Yankees need numbers like that if they want to solidify their spot as World Series repeat champions.
