The Yankees finish the season with 84 wins which was good enough for their 24th straight winning season. It was a disappointing year but also a good year as they traded and had Alex Rodriguez retire and brought up a lot of their young talent and had success. They will look to build off of that and be ready to go in the spring. The Orioles will head to Toronto for the Wild Card game on Tuesday night.
