Think your team has problems, Red Sox fans? Try being the New York Yankees. Consider what has gone down since the Bombers qualified for the playoffs last year:

• Captain Derek Jeter horrifically broke his ankle in the ALCS against the Detroit Tigers.

• Ace CC Sabathia underwent surgery to remove a bone spur from his left elbow.

• Free agency came and went with the newly frugal Yankees making barely a peep, save for a one-year deal with former Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis. The Yankees are apparently poor now.

• They endured another two chapters in the saga known as “As the A-Rod Turns.” Alex Rodriguez underwent hip surgery. And the third baseman got dragged back into the performance-enhancing drugs mess thanks to stories linking him to a Miami anti-aging clinic. The Yankees owe him almost $115 million through 2017 and probably secretly hope he does something so unspeakable, they can void the remainder of his contract.

• Slugger Curtis Granderson didn’t even survive his first at-bat of the spring, getting hit by a pitch and breaking his arm. He’s expected to be sidelined until May.

• Right-hander Phil Hughes has a bulging disc and may miss Opening Day. Forty-somethings Mariano Rivera and Andy Pettitte are being counted on to anchor the pitching staff. Versatile outfielder Nick Swisher signed with the Cleveland Indians, and All-Star catcher Russell Martin bolted for the Pittsburgh Pirates.
