Two seasons ago I wrote a Fanpost for Pinstripe Alley titled “Did The Yankees Punt On 2015?” As is customary when it comes to headlines that end with a question mark, the short answer is “No.” Re-reading it now is like opening a weird time capsule and I hope I never have to write anything about Stephen Drew ever again, but the point is that I thought the 2015 team could be sneaky good and then ended up watching them play in the Wild Card game (they lost but let’s move right on from that.) I have a feeling the 2017 iteration of the team is being undersold as well.

Ok so let me set the scene for you as I write this: it’s 11:45PM on a Saturday. I’m sitting on my couch in Brooklyn wearing my Team Israel hat, my fridge contains leftover Chinese food from earlier today. I’m throwing the Team Israel v Team Cuba game to my TV via the Chromecast. The location, hat, and fridge content asides are for those of you who doubt my Jewish baseball credentials.
