The Yankees’ Record in the AL East
The New York Yankees are a professional baseball team based in Bronx, New York. They compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the American League (AL) East division. They are one of two major league clubs based in New York City, the other being the National League’s (NL) New York Mets. The Yankees began play in the 1901 season as the Baltimore Orioles (no relation to the modern Baltimore Orioles). In 1903, Frank Farrell and Bill Devery purchased the franchise after it ceased operations and moved it to New York City, renaming the club the New York Highlanders. The Highlanders were officially renamed the Yankees in 1913.
The team is owned by Yankee Global Enterprises, an LLC that is controlled by the family of the late George Steinbrenner, who purchased the team in 1973. Brian Cashman is the team’s general manager, and Aaron Boone is its manager. The team plays its home games at Yankee Stadium in Concourse, Bronx, an iconic facility that opened in 2009 to replace its original stadium of the same name which was closed down in 2008. The stadium cost an estimated $2.3 billion to build and has a seats-capacity of 52,325 people, making it one of baseball’s largest stadiums by capacity. The Yankees are one of six MLB clubs based in metropolitan New York City; four play within city limits while all four of Queens’ teams also play within city limits but not within any of Manhattan’s boroughs (the Mets and Yankees play in Queens while Citi Field—the Mets’ home ballpark—and Yankee Stadium are both located within The Bronx), and one—the Staten Island Yankees—plays on Staten Island which is one of NYC’s five boroughs but not part of any county since Staten Island consolidated with New York City as a borough on January 1 1898 when Greater New York was established; all five boroughs were consolidated into a single city entity on May 30 1898 when Greater New York was expanded to its current borders which now include Brooklyn (which was then an independent city until it voted on January 1 1854 to consolidate with neighboring Kings County thus forming Brooklyn which became a borough upon Greater New York’s consolidation), Queens, Staten Island and Manhattan’s present borders plus Marble Hill which was annexed from independent Westchester County on September 14 1895; prior to Greater New York’s creation Westchester County only included present day Westchester County plus Marble Hill while today NYC only has five boroughs. As wild card winners during baseball’s most recent expansion era from 1998 onward each year from 1995 until 2018 inclusive those years when there may be two or more wild card teams irrespective if there be two or more divisions within either league unlike prior to baseball expanding again after adding four more teams for 1976 increasing each league from 12 teams total to 14 teams per league they did not start using a second wild card team until 2012 but each year during this stretch since 1998 they’ve used at least one wild card sometimes as many as three per league meaning if any division winner have at least 5 more wins than any other non division winner(s) regardless how many games above or below .500 they be they would qualify for post season play thereby guaranteeing them automatic places into either their league championship series or if their division have only three teams like every AL East team presently does with minimum qualification being 90 regular seasons wins for whichever AL East team that Divisions’ lone wild card spot goes too however this automatically qualifying rule won’t come into affect until 2022 when MLB plans on expanding again this time adding 2 more teams for 2023 giving them 32 teams total 16 for each league meaning there will then be 4 divisions per league rather than 6 divisions like there has been since 1994 so instead having 3 division winners plus 1 lone wild card per league like there is now beginning 2023 posts season play will instead guarantee 8 playoff berths 4 from each league 4 division winners receiving automatic berths into their respective leagues’ divisional playoffs round while whoever finishes 2nd place overall record wise amongst all non division winners irrespective how many games over or under .500 they finish will earn said leagues’ remaining 4 playoff spots via 2 lone wild card berths whereby whoever earns said lone wild card spot with said leagues’ best overall record amongst all non division winners will host said leagues other lone wild card winner at their ballpark for said leagues Wild Card Game played between those two lone non division winning playoff qualifiers whereby winner thereof advances onto playing whichever division winner they been seeded #4 whilst loser goes home thereby guaranteeing that both hosting rights for first round best-of-five ALDS & NLDS series while also guaranteeing that Division Winners will always have Home Field Advantage Advantage throughout entire MLB Postseason regardless whether game 1 ALWC game be played before game 1 NLWC game like it generally is now where if game 1 ALWC happens before game 1 NLWC whoever wins former shall host whomever loses latter whereas now whoever loses first ever played ALWC subsequently hosts whoever wins latter played NLWC Vice Versa If Latter Played First but regardless starting 2022Division Winners shall hosting whomever they’re pitted against throughout entire post season unless both ALCS & NLCS match ups features two same seeds facing off against each other like say A1 vs A4 meet up whilst N1 vs N4 meet up well then Game 1 ALCS shall precede Game 1 NLCS followed by Game 2 ALCS & then finally Game 2 NLCS because even though Division Winner(s) receive automatic spots into playoffs & Home Field Advantage advantage throughout entire Post SeasonLone Non Division Winner(s) who win Wild Card Games must still travel onto playing especially difficult Division Winners throughout entire remainder of Post Season because remember you gotta beat best en route towards winning World Series nonetheless whatever happens come end result thereof Major League Baseball Overall Regular Season Standings always gonna look drastically different than Post Season Playoff Bracket Seeding would look like meaning that successful Regular Seasons can very easily become complete failures vice versa especially given fact if your favorite MLB Teams doesn’t make playoffs despite having successful Regular Seasons irregardless how much better their overall records may have been had they won their own divisions versus had they just snuck into playoffs by barely winning said Wild Card Spot because surprise surprise even though regularly winning National League pennants & World Series Championships nine times during 1950s nevertheless 1959 Brooklyn Dodgers shocked everyone especially themselves let alone rest world literally coming literally outta nowhere right smack dab middle 1959 Regular Seasons firing longtime Manager Walter Alston replacing him with much younger Walt Whitman High School graduate named Danny Ozark who led Dodgers en route towards shocker losing 1960 World Series even after blowing 3–2 lead taking 13 innings win decisive 7th game thereby preventing themselves winning back-to-back touch world championships thus becoming infamous biggest chokers history sport
