10 years ago today, the Yankees beat the Phillies in Game 6 of the 2009 World Series to win our 27th championship. With a roster that included Alex Rodriguez, CC Sabathia, Mark Teixeira, Mariano Rivera, Robinson Cano, Andy Pettitte, and Derek Jeter sticking around for a couple of years, this was the beginning of our next dynasty. The fans were ready to talk that shit for the next 5 years, while we rattled off championship after championship throughout the 2010s.
Instead, we spent the decade falling short of even making the World Series and most importantly, we’ve let down the children. There are 10-year-old Yankee fans (DOUBLE DIGITS) walking around this planet who have never reached the pinnacle. This is a flaw in the system, and it needs to be fixed ASAP. The children are our future, and without a World Series to rub in everyone’s face, they are missing out on the the best part of being a fan of the greatest organization in sports.

Let’s go out and get a frontline starter. Not for me, but for the children.*
