The chase for 28 is almost upon us as the Yankees are set to begin what should be another memorable season of baseball. Last season the Yanks surprised the baseball world when they made it all the way to Game 7 of the ALCS in what was thought to be a “rebuilding year.”

Unfortunately, we all know how that ended but in classic Yankees fashion, they have reloaded by adding some new additions to the infield, a new manager, and last year’s NL MVP. It’s a roster that is loaded with talent and expected to compete for a championship. Anything less than that would be considered unacceptable. This team is no longer the loveable underdogs they were a season ago. The Evil Empire is back and the next great Yankees dynasty could be upon us.

I can’t wait for things to get started, but before they do here are my predictions for the team’s statistical leaders in 2018.
