This week was a reminder to all that the success the New York Yankees had shown in the late 1990s and the 2000s are all officially behind us. With 22-year veteran Alex Rodriguez announcing his retirement just the week before, this leaves just three players left on roster of the 2009 championship team. As much as people like to hold on to the past, it is safe to be said with the departure of Rodriguez that a new era of not only Yankees baseball, but baseball in general is upon us. The Yankees have tons of young talent waiting for their names to be called two of which are Aaron Judge and Tyler Austin.
RBI – 7
ER – 0
The Yankees hope to continue their run for a potential Wild Card spot with a three game series against the first place Toronto Blue Jays. Following after, the team will travel over to Anaheim to take on Mike Trout and the Los Angeles Angels.
