It's shocking enough to realize that for the first time in many years, the Yankees will not have the highest payroll in major-league baseball in 2013. But now, according to ESPN the Magazine's Buster Olney, they will barely crack the top-10 in terms of lineup strength this year.

You can read his Insider piece on why he believes the Yankees lineup is no better than No. 10 in the game here, as well as which of the nine teams are better than them.

Interesting reading, and for Yankees fans, more than a little disturbing.
