The Yankees finished the season at 100-62 and broke the MLB all time home run record. It wasn’t good enough for the division but it was a historic season none the less. Now it all comes down to one game on Wednesday. Despite an injury Aaron Judge had a great sophomore campaign. Gleyber Torres and Miguel Andujar emerged as two of the best players in all of baseball as rookies. Luke Voit came out of nowhere to have a huge season and establish some stability at first base for the Yankees. Giancarlo Stanton had a 38 homer 100 rbi season in his first as a Yankee.
The Yankees roster looked a lot different on opening day they made so many moves to potentially pay dividends in the playoffs. The Yankees acquired Andrew McCutchen, Voit, JA Happ, Zach Britton, Lance Lynn and Adeiny Hechevarria.
The Yankees pitching at times was heavily criticized but was huge for the Yankees especially down the stretch.
Aaron Boone had his ups and downs as a first year manger but all in all it was a strong one for him and his Yankees. The Yankees gear up for the big Wild Card game on Wednesday. If they win that game they have their chance to eliminate the division champion Red Sox.
