Yankees' Most Realistic 2024 Season Scenario

The Yanks enter 2024 with an aging, often injured roster containing more productivity-based question marks than their fan base is likely willing to admit. It’s been a full decade since the Yanks failed to play a postseason game two years running. They’re probably better than the Rays and Jays, which makes them solid wild card contenders.

But given the questions presented by reliance on Stroman, Cortes, Rodón, LeMahieu, Rizzo and Stanton, this is a team that could also be set up for one of the epic falls of 2024. The Yanks, after all, finished 25th in run production last season. Judge, Soto, Cole and -- to a lesser extent -- Torres are all exceptional talents in their primes, fully capable of offsetting that potential downward spiral. They may have to.
