NEW YORK YANKEES 2008 SUMMARY
New York will be a popular team in online gambling baseball odds this season. Baseball gambling experts see a starting rotation of Chien-Ming Wang, Andy Pettitte, Mike Mussina, Ian Kennedy, Phil Hughes and it is possible that Joba Chamberlain could also be in the mix.
New York was able to resign Alex Rodriguez and Jorge Posada and that makes them a likely favorite again in 2008 according to online gambling baseball experts. Bringing back Pettitte also helps the rotation. He was 15-9 with a 4.05 ERA in 34 starts according to baseball gambling stats. The number one starter on the staff is Wang who went 19-7 with a 3.70 ERA in 30 starts according to baseball gambling stats. The key starter could be Chamberlain who has electric stuff and would be a potential number one starter according to online gambling baseball experts. Hughes is also thought of as a potential number one by many baseball gambling experts.
The infield is led by AL MVP Alex Rodriguez who batted .314 with 54 home runs and 156 RBIs in 158 games for the Yankees last year according to baseball gambling stats. The other corner position will be a combination of Jason Giambi, Wilson Betemit and Shelley Duncan. The catching position is in the solid hands of Jorge Posada who hit a career-high .338 last season according to baseball gambling stats. Derek Jeter leads the team at short and is coming off a season where he hit .322 with 12 home runs, 73 RBIs and 102 runs scored according to baseball gambling stats. His partner in the middle is Robinson Cano who batted .306 according to baseball gambling stats last year. The outfield according to baseball gambling experts has Melky Cabrera, Johnny Damon, Hideki Matsui and Bobby Abreu.
The bullpen is all about Mariano Rivera who is one of the best closers in baseball history according to baseball gambling stats. If Chamberlain moves to the starting rotation then New York will have to find a setup man since Kyle Farnsworth does not inspire confidence. The Yankees did add LaTroy Hawkins according to online gambling baseball experts but lost Luis Vizcaino.
