2014 MLB Predictions: Tanaka, Jeter, Trout & Harper

The Yankees haven't missed the postseason two years in a row since the Buck Showalter era. This year, they've got stiff competition yet again in the AL East and I've gotta say, it doesn't look too good for the Bronx Bombers.

One thing's for sure: the Yankees' farm system isn't going to dazzle this year. That means it will be up to this year's 25-man roster to bring the Yankees back to the postseason. As you'll see below, I believe these 25 can do it. But I've chosen my words carefully, and health – as it always is with the Yankees – will be the X-factor. These 25 can do it.

Sure, there are plenty of questions about this year's team, starting with Masahiro Tanaka. And what about CC Sabathia's velocity? Mark Teixeira's wrist? Derek Jeter's ankle? Thinking about all of that makes your nervous, and let's not forget about David Robertson's attempt to fill in for the great Mariano Rivera. Well, my sixth annual preseason predictions are below!

Results for my 2013 MLB predictions

There was no way I was going to match the success I had last year, when I hit .327 (16-for-49). Starting from the top, I practically picked the AL East in perfect reverse order. That's not an easy feat.

Anyway, this year I was 12-for-50. However, 3-for-8 for the awards section isn't too shabby!
