Dreamland Yankees in 2013

There are so many fantasy scenarios going on with the Yankees it isn't even funny.  It's turned into "Dreamland" in the Bronx.  They aren't just playing baseball, and bad baseball at that.  They are giving people around the game the idea that things are getting better or that a scenario is going to play out soon when it has no chance.   Here are some examples.

Hiroki Kuroda The Bright MVP On A Dismal Yankee Team

Just having the nonsense with Alex Rodriguez would be enough to tarnish a season for the New York Yankees, even one in which they made the playoffs and fought for the American League flag.  But on top of that you have so many other things that have gone wrong.

Why The Yankees Are In First Place

The demise of the Yankees was written at least a dozen times from February 1 until now.  The injuries, oh the injuries.  But baseball people must not have been baseball people through and through because they forgot that CC Sabathia and Robinson Cano and Mariano Rivera were still around and the bullpen was in tact.  And the division actually wasn't that good if you know how baseball teams win in 2013.  Here are the Top 5 reasons why the Yanks were in first place as of May 13, 2013 at 9:00 p.m. EST.

Leadership Helping Yanks Stay Ahead

Talk all day long about the 2013 replacement players in pinstripes.  Talk about general manager Brian Cashman taking chances.  Talk about the starting pitching being good enough in spots.  Talk about whatever you'd like as the main reason for the Yankees' demise not quite happening just yet like some thought.  The real talk is the leadership and presence of Mariano Rivera, Derek Jeter and Andy Pettitte.  As long as those three are in the Bronx, it starts and ends with that.

Vernon Wells – The Most Overpaid Player In Baseball

Let's face it - Yankee pitcher AJ Burnett stinks.  After giving up nine runs in just five innings of a 12-5 loss to Baltimore on Friday night, Burnett's days in the Yanks' rotation seemed to be numbered.

Not exactly what the Yankees thought when they signed Burnett to a 5-year, $82.5 million deal in 2008.

But as bad as AJ has been, he's not the most overpaid player in baseball right now.
