Joel Sherman's uncanny predictions last March for the 2014 Yankees

Damn, with the exception of A-Rod donning tights, he got it right.

Sherman said he couldn't decide whether the Yankees were a first or fourth place team, because the starting pitchers had huge upside and deep, dark downsides. Then he added this...

Don’t be surprised if … (Yankees edition)

• After all the talk that Yankee Stadium is perfect for his power stroke, Brian McCann hits the same 20 homers in 2014 for the Yankees he did in 2012 and ’13 for the Braves.
• The Yanks become so enamored with John Ryan Murphy at Triple-A that Gary Sanchez becomes the new Jesus Montero — a catching trade chip to address an area of future need, such as shortstop or third base.

• Jacoby Ellsbury and Brett Gardner each top 40 steals, becoming the first Yankees teammates to do so since Roberto Kelly and Steve Sax in 1990.
• Alex Rodriguez announces he will be on the next version of “Dancing With the Stars” to prove his hip is fine — and, of course, that he still loves attention.
• Derek Jeter hits .275 and his range is limited enough that Joe Girardi begins playing Brendan Ryan late in games the Yanks lead.
• Mark Teixeira hits 27 homers but bats just .230.
