By all means they should contend, but they've seemmed to have chemistry issues in recent years, i dont see that changing. Also, if Posada isn't capable of catching regularly, either he or Matsui will ride pine while the other DH's. And as UTCLA said, there are some big injury risks, and many proven guys who don't go for Girardi's hard-ass style, but i hear he is making an effort to keep things looser. I'm sure their talent is good enough for at least 2nd in the ALE and a wild card run though.
