Thank you fans and Season Recap
Thank you to the Yankees for an incredible season and especially thank you to all the people who follow me and @bombersbeat my partner in crime. This was our third season having a Yankee account and although our first season in 2015 will always be special this year was the best. We gained a lot of knew followers and had so much fun. Thank you to the Yankees for an incredible year. Think of this year as 1995. They have a chance to start a knew dynasty with this core. It was a devastating way to go out tonight but championship days are ahead for this group. The Yankees coming out party has just begun. Again thank you to the Yankees and thank you to all our followers who made this fun. We will be with you guys all winter talking about what's next. Feel free to follow my personal account @petervitella also and follow my partner in crime @wstobin2. Thank you guys again for an incredible year. That's a wrap on the 2017 Yankees it was an incredible ride. Follow @bomberbeat2 and @bombersbeat in the offseason and chat with us all winter.
Now for the season recap. Many didn't expect the Yankees to be a playoff team and they made it all the way to game 7 of the ALCS. The Baby Bombers were led by Aaron Judge , Gary Sanchez and Luis Severino. Greg Bird battled injuries but had an excellent end to the season and playoff run. CC Sabathia turned back the clock and was the Yankees stopper all season.
The Yankees made some big trades acquiring Sonny Gray from the Athletics and Todd Frazier , Tommy Kahnle and David Robertson from the White Sox. All of these guys will be back in 2017 with the exception of Frazier. He is a free agent and it remains to be seen if the Yankees resign him.
The Yankees future is bright. They took the Astros to 7 games in the ALCS. They came so close in what many called a rebuilding year. Aaron Judge is a lock to win the Rookie of the Year and has a great shot at the MVP also. Gary Sanchez and Didi Gregorius had even better seasons than in 2016. Things are very bright for the Yankees moving forward.
