In the wake of the overwhelming pessimism about the 2013 Yankees, I present some optimism in "Reasons to be cheerful, part 13" on the Pinstriped Bible.
First of all, I have yet to jump on the Blue Jays bandwagon. Yes, they acquired half the Marlins roster, but where many focus on the word "acquired," I prefer to focus on the word "Marlins." Expecting both Melky Cabrera and Edwin Encarnacion to repeat their career years rather than be the player they were every other year prior to that is optimistic as hell, and I don't think playing 81 games on turf will do anything good for what's left of Jose Reyes's legs. There's a lot more wishcasting in Canada than I think people are realizing.
