Yankees fail to make the playoffs

For the first time since 1995 the Yankees failed to make the playoffs. It was a good run and there is always next year. I’ve been a Yankee fan since I was in grade school. As a long time Yankee fan I’ve had some long dry spells. I think from 64 thru 76 we had really bad teams but with some great personalities. Even though they didn’t win I loved those years and some of the players. Then we had another 18 years of weak teams from 78 thru 96 season, so I’m aware of how it feels not to make the playoffs. Maybe I’ve become spoiled in recent years by making the playoffs so many years in a row, but they were one of the best teams during those years, what can I say.

Lets look at this year. The Yankees had a good record and played well but just couldn’t over come the unbelievable lucky Rays and their special season. I also believe if they were close to Boston they may have over taken them or may have at least taken the wild card and knocked them off in the playoffs. And I’m going go out on a limb here and say the Yankees will retool for 2009 and make the playoff easily.

You heard it here first.
