I asked my fellow Yanks enthusiasts (and two Mets fans in hiding) to think big picture, not necessarily just the AL East, and tell me who they think is the biggest threat to the Yanks' quest for #28 this year.

Thank you to everyone who chatted with me. Below are pictures of some awesome Yankees fans. Sorry to the people I spoke to later whom I didn't get to photograph. I need a new camera battery. Well, really, a new camera.

Two very, very nice couples.
I didn't ask, but I have a feeling these guys are Bleacher Creatures because they are so funny and so very vocal.
My new friends with amazing seats. Hoping to see them on Thursday when I have an amazing seat too.
