Percentage of 2012 plate appearances that ended with a strikeout, and major league rank

BY HITTERS | 18.9% | 10TH

BY PITCHERS | 21.7% | 5TH

Best Case

They hang around .500 until Granderson, Teixeira and A-Rod return, then slug their way to one of the wild-card spots.

Worst Case

Injuries and age decimate the offense, and a similarly aging staff produces the first losing season in the Bronx since 1992.
