If the Yankees finish in 4th place, with less than 87 wins, this year – which it’s looking good that they will – then…yes.
The last time the Yankees finished in 4th place was 1992. And, the last time the Yankees had less than 87 wins in a full 162-game season was 1992.
Those are hard, cold, facts.
How long ago was 1992? Well, in June of that year, the Yankees drafted some kid out of Kalamazoo named Derek Jeter. And, he’s now in his 22nd year of playing professional baseball.
