That’s the Yankees, at least today. As I wrote two weeks ago, they’re built around Gerrit Cole and Aaron Judge. One of those guys might be a zero in 2024, and the other will be managing minor injuries probably for the rest of his career. Brian Cashman worked to lengthen the roster this year after last season’s team fell apart without Judge, but it won’t be enough if Cole doesn’t pitch. Even Juan Soto won’t be enough. This prediction pegs Cole at 12 starts and 65 innings, and I’ll take under 18 and 100 for the limit.
