In a few days it will be February, and before you know it, pitchers and catchers will be reporting to Tampa! By the 24th, Steinbrenner Field will become the Mecca for Yankee fans everywhere as Spring Training games begin. Everybody will be looking at the New York Yankees and wondering what to expect this upcoming season.

As Yankee fans, it's safe to say that we expect to be in the World Series every year. We're that bratty kid in the Best Buy kicking and screaming because we want all the new PlayStation games... and we've gotta have it now!  Everything I've been reading and, trust me, it's been a lot... is about the Yankees future.  The future indeed looks bright but, here's a good question; What about now? How will the Yankees look when they take the field in 2017?

Looking around the Internet, there are a ton of predictions. Even Chase Headley chimed in. The New York Post has this: I think we’ve got a great chance to compete in this division."

Long time BYB reader Frank Gentry, a former BYB writer by the way... recently tweeted Casey this:
It's true. But look, trying to predict a baseball season is like walking through a field of landmines. You can't do it. So many things could happen.

Maybe the pitching staff does better than predicted. Maybe Michael Pineda is lights out this season. Maybe Chris Sale or David Price get hurt or don't have the season's they are supposed to have.

Maybe Josh Donaldson and Jose Bautista have bad years as well. Maybe I'll get signed at mid-season and pitch a perfect game.

I can't tell you if the Yankees will compete this year or not.

I can tell you though that come April 2nd, it sure will be fun to watch!
