I think all Yankee fans approached this season with great trepidation. If the bullpen was as good as we thought, the starting pitching stayed healthy and a bunch of old guys returned to form we had a shot.

I listed those in decreasing order of likelihood at the beginning of the season. A-Rod and Teixeira playing like All Stars? Who saw that coming?

We’re all still holding our breath when Tanaka pitches, hoping his arm holds. CC Sabathia looks washed up. But the bullpen is everything we hoped and more. Betances/Miller covering the 8th and 9th with ERAs of 1.40 and 1.62 respectively and WHIP of  0.82 and 0.69 (Mariano who?).

So I’m slowing getting enthusiastic. Perhaps there will be September baseball this year…
