2013 AB4AR Season Preview Recap

Three weeks are up.  That means we've come to the end of the 2013 AB4AR Season Preview series.  The Yankees haven't stopped making moves and shuffling the deck, but we know what they're starting the season with and we've got a pretty good idea of what to expect when the regular season starts tomorrow.  If you've missed any of this past week's positional season preview posts, here they are:

- The Lineup

- The Rotation

- The Bullpen

- The Bench

- The Predicitions

This time tomorrow, we'll be watching how it all starts to play out on the field instead of on a computer screen.  As nervous as I am about what this season has in store, I'm glad it's finally starting.  Go Yankees!

P.S.- After a one-year hiatus, the Opening Day live blog returns tomorrow.  Be on the lookout for it sometime around 12:30 PM Eastern/11:30 AM Central.

It's not what any of us likely had in mind when Spring Training started, and that was before Curtis Granderson, Mark Teixeira, and Derek Jeter went down.  The Yankees still have to put 25 guys in uniform for Monday, and they've scrambled to fill those gaps in the past few weeks.  Yesterday they put the finishing touches on what will be the official 25-man roster when the regular season opens tomorrow.  It's not pretty, but you already knew that.  Have a look.
