One and done: the New York Yankees bite the dust as the baseball playoffs begin

Toronto Blue Jays fans have no need to worry about the New York Yankees any more. The slumping Yankees hosted the American League wild card playoff game tonight, and promptly lost to the Houston Astros 3-0. So just one game into baseball’s postseason, the Yankees are done — and after battling the Blue Jays so hard for the East division this season, it hardly seems fair.

This, my friends, is exactly why Blue Jays players were celebrating when they won the division last week — because it meant they avoided the wild-card game. The wild card game is an absolute crapshoot and Yankee fans found that out the hard way tonight.
