This video came out 5 years ago today, and it just made me tear up exactly the same way it did 5 years ago. Now here we sit, a couple of hours from clinching our first division since Derek Jeter was on the team. Not only that, but we are welcoming back the man that Jeter traded to us, Giancarlo Stanton.
It’s been such a long season with a billion injuries, but watch this video and think about how sad you were then. We weren’t sniffing the playoffs, we were losing the cornerstone of our franchise, and there was almost no hope in sight. Think about how good we have it now and enjoy clinching this division, but remember, we still have work to do.
It's September 18th. The playoffs start in less than two weeks.
