Re: Will the Yankees miss the playoffs?
They will more than likely go on another run, but their problem is, their so far back in the AL East race, and there are 5 teams ahead of them in the wild card, so it might not matter. Yeah, 6.5 games at this time of year isn't much to overcome, but unlike years past, I don't think that there is anyone that they can trade for, unless they are stupid enough to give up Philip Hughes.
Also, a team with their payroll and their resources should NEVER miss the playoffs. Heads will roll if they do miss out. Torre and Cashman will both be gone.
