Should the Stanton deal make the Yankees favorites to win the AL East in 2018?

I know there will still be plenty of action to take place in the winter meetings, but supposing the Yankees made no more moves this off-season, would you still feel this team (as is now) is enough for the Yankees to win the AL eastern division in 2018?

According to expected wins, the Yankees should have won the division last year. So yes, they should be huge favorites next year.

I honestly think even if the Yanks didn't make this move the Yanks would still be the favorites or at least one of the favorites to take it all. They'll have a dominate lineup, solid bullpen and a good starting rotation. Of course that's on paper, anything can happen but that's my feelings on it.

Situations always looks good on paper.  It remains to be seen if it gets transcribed on the field.  An injury or two is the difference maker...

Nope. 


To be honest, what we all feel in December means absolutely nothing.  have had so many warm and fuzzy Decembers to only have heartaches in October. 


I rather stand pat now and load up the farm system for July 2018.  That's the month (or a few weeks before) that will make or break the 2018 Yankees via the trades we do then for the season's hottest pitcher or hitter. 


BUT....


If a godo deal comes our way now (like the Stanton deal), then by all means........
