Yankees Have Officially Been Eliminated From Playoff Contention

After the Orioles claimed a victory against the Toronto Blue Jays today. The Yankees have officially been eliminated from the playoff race. 

It is the saddest time of the year. Baseball season seems as though it takes forever to come back. April seems so far away and I will truly miss yet another season where the lights don’t shine in Yankee Stadium for playoff baseball.

The Yankees will now face the Orioles for their final three game series of the year. Though they have been eliminated, the Yankees can still play a big role as a spoiler against the Orioles. 

As we now draw within three games of the end of the season. I will always have a special part in my heart for this 2016 Yankee team. It was a team that never gave up. They were resilient and they marked a change in the Yankees philosophy. They still showed us the same Yankees competitive spirit. That was hard to do after losing so many key players at the trade deadline. 

As a Yankees fan I am always proud of our team. I am thankful to be apart of such a great family of fans. The best organization in all of sports. The Yankees did the right thing this year by selling this season. As we enter this final chapter of 2016, we can look forward to the youth of 2017. As always Go Yankees!
