As we officially enter the 2020s, let’s take a position by position deep dive into the New York Yankees during the 2010s.
While the 2010s will be remembered as the decade the New York Yankees didn’t make a postseason appearance, we’d be remiss if we didn’t acknowledge that, in all, they had a 921-699 (.569 W-L%) record. What’s more, the team continued its record of consecutive winning seasons.
In fact, the last time the Yankees had a below .500 record in a single season was 1992. During the 2010s, not only did the team play above .500, they won 90 or more games six times.
Now, before we jump into the All-Decade Yankee team, I wanted to give an honorable mention to three players that I’m sure some of you will be upset aren’t listed. These three players played an integral part in the dynasty of the late 1990s.
Last year, Mo was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame unanimously. The first player ever to accomplish such a feat. This year, “El Capitan” could very likely accomplish the same feat. However, because of his connections to PED’s, Pettitte will likely not make the HOF at all.
Now, the reason these players didn’t make the list is that they just didn’t play enough in the 2010s, and the players that did, simply outperformed them. Had this been the All-2000s team, they’d be in. Unfortunately for them, it isn’t.
So, without further ado, here is the All-2010s New York Yankees.
