Yankees fans have have it good for a long time.
But the party is coming to an end, as it always does in the cyclical world of sports.
For only the secnd time in 19 years, the Bronx Bombers will not be going to baseball’s post season.
And they may not play October baseball for a while.
I think of the Yankees like a old broken down Cadillac.
Still respected by the automotive world for its craftmanship, but too worn down to make a splash.
The Yanks are old, injured and slowing down.
C.C. Sabathia, Alex Rodriguez, Curtis Granderson, Derek Jeter and Mark Teixeira all hit the disabled list this season.
The team used a franchise record 56 players this season.
All-time saves leader Mariano Rivera will make his final Yankee Stadium appearance tonight.
Andy Pettitte will make his final career start on Friday.
Robinson Canu and Granderson are set to become free agents this winter.
And Ichiro, Jeter and A-Rod may all retire, but even if they come back, they’re not the same players as they once were.
Start spreading the news… the Yanks are done.
