Yankees fall one game short of a trip to the World Series

The Yankees fell one game short of a trip to the World Series after they lost to the Astros 4-0 in Game 7 of the ALCS against the Houston Astros on Saturday.

They had two opportunities to win the series, but dropped the final two games. The Yankees were great this year, better than anyone expected, and this was easily the best non-championship team since at least 2001.

It’s hard to be down, though, after the emergence of a core group that includes Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez, Luis Severino and Greg Bird. Next year, the Yankees add Clint Frazier, Gleyber Torres, Miguel Andujar and Chance Adams to that list. The future is bright.

    Man, what a year!! I did not expect being that close to the WS this soon! The core kids as you mentioned, played great down the stretch and almost had enough to make it. Awesome! Let the off season spectulation begin! Adding the starter and two relievers is beyond great. Still that hole at third and will Tanaka opt out? DH? Too many topics, for now post season baseball in the Bronx was unbelievable! I could get use to that Hal!

    Hey Terry, a great year indeed, not really a hole at third so much. Still have Headley, could sign Frazier and Gleyber and Andujar waiting in the wings. We'll know about Tanaka opting out within 2 weeks, he'd be a fool to do so. But at least we'll know quickly. And DH could be a revolving door and might include Otani who could DH a good part. Big concerns right now are Girardi and Cashman re- signing Which I believe they definitely will. But no doubt Terry, it's a great time to be a Yankee fan.
