When it comes to Major League baseball post season, no team is as ubiquitous as the New York Yankees. Having won more than 25 World Series titles and being THE team of the nations largest city puts continuous pressure on the Yankees to perform well and not only make the playoffs, but win – every year.
The past few seasons, expectations have been especially high since the Yankees haven’t won a World Series since 2001. In addition, their farm system has produced numerous talents, while they have managed to pick up several established players while still not making the playoffs at all in 2008.
The pressure will continue to mount until they make another run. Could this be the year? Time shall tell. Grab some Yankees tickets and find out.
