Verducci Picks Yanks

Tom Verducci picks the Yanks to win the division. He writes:
The Yankees have so much talent it would take a multitude of worst-case scenarios to cut them low. ... Boston seems more prone to a fallback, if only because recent world champions seem to be handed a tax bill the following season -- and if it hits Josh Beckett, look out.
The Red Sox won the division last year by only two games, and their rotation enjoyed nearly perfect health all season while the Yankees' rotation didn't come into focus until August.
