The 2018 New York Yankees


The New York Yankees were the most successful team in New York sports this year, so with that we will take a look at the Bronx Bombers first.

The New York Yankees had a fantastic 2018, even though it may not appear so.

Finishing the regular season at 100-62 the Yankees held the third best record in the MLB, behind only the Red Sox and Astros.

2018 was a year of improvement and we most definitely saw it on the field.

The Yankees added nine wins onto their record from 2017 to 2018 and saw some incredible potential out of their roster.

With Miguel Andujar finishing 2nd in the AL Rookie of the Year race, and Gleyber Torres finishing third, the Yankees future is looking bright.

This, plus the first year with Giancarlo Stanton in pinstripes, should have Yankees fans ecstatic for the future.

The Yankees would go onto beat the Oakland Athletics in the AL Wild Card Game but would unfortunately lose to the Red Sox in the ALDS who went onto win the World Series.

Nonetheless, if the Yankees can make the ALDS in Stanton, Torres and Andujar’s first years with the Yankees, then they can surely get further the next couple of seasons.

Not only did the Yankees have an extremely positive 2018 season, but the 2018 offseason is also off to a great start.

The acquisition of James Paxton from the Mariners has the Yankees starting rotation looking dangerous.

The Yankees now have a starting rotation of Luis Severino, James Paxton, Masahiro Tanaka, J.A. Happ and C.C. Sabathia.

That is a starting rotation with some serious potential and it’s one opposing teams will be scared of.

Best moment 

So with all these great outcomes and a great season, what was the Yankees top moment of 2018?

Out of all the great memories that the 2018 season brought us, the Wild Card victory had to be the best.

Stanton hitting two homers in his debut against the Blue Jays was pretty great too. So was every single one of the Yankees’ record breaking 267 home runs in 2018.

But that October 3rd night was the cherry on top.

The Yankees beat the A’s 7-2 in the Wild Card Game to the excitement of Yankees fans around the world. This game had fans over the moon and it had us thinking about number 28.

Severino pitched four scoreless innings on the mound while allowing only two hits before being taken out for Dellin Betances who didn’t allow a single base runner in two innings.

The pitching staff, with the exception of Zach Britton’s eighth inning was fantastic. They allowed only five hits and seven runs en route to a 7-2 win to advance to the 2018 ALDS.
