We have kept you up to date with what the Yankees have been up to on social media ever since baseball shutdown back in March. Although the season is over for New York, we’ll still provide weekly updates on what your favorite Yankees do when they’re not on the diamond!
The Yankees thank the fans
Ah, yes. The dreaded “thank you to the fans” post. Something no one ever wants to see from their favorite team and a post Yankees fans are all too familiar with in recent years. It’s a nice gesture by the team, but looking at the comments underneath, the fans didn’t care.
Heartbreaking end to our 2020 run. It was a season full of unknowns and new challenges. Though it did not end the way we wanted, we're beyond grateful for the support our fans showed us along the way; and we hope to see your faces again soon. pic.twitter.com/ucMgHfk4I2— New York Yankees (@Yankees) October 10, 2020
The rest of what I’m about to share were all posted before the Yankees were eliminated on Friday night, so they don’t look too good right now.
Not even the greatest closer of all-time could will the Yankees to a win. Aroldis Chapman didn’t pitch poorly in the series, but I’m sure many fans miss seeing No. 42 jog out for the ninth inning, especially after how the last two seasons have ended for New York.
He never pitched in the postseason before Game Four of the ALDS, but that didn’t matter. Monty really showed up for the Bombers, giving up only one run over four innings and forcing the pivotal Game Five. If the Yanks won the series, his start would have been looked at as a big factor why.
The 2020 home run champion posted a picture of his home run trot after his mammoth solo shot in Game Four. That put the Yankees up 1-0 in the second inning and they never looked back. Although the season didn’t end how they wanted it to, Voit was an integral part of this ball club from start to finish. He played through injury and never complained about it. He has the offseason to get healthy and come back for revenge next year.
