The best thing about this Yankee team is that they all work together to contribute to the greater goal.  Each player adds his own value, his own personality and his own talent.  It is about the team first and the individual second.  This mantra has served this team well and they are just warming up!

“The biggest thing is not only the talent, but just how guys genuinely care about each other,” Maybin said late Monday night as the party inside the Yankees clubhouse wound down following a 5-1 win over the Twins at Target Field that completed an ALDS sweep. “Guys every day coming in here, whether it’s on the field or off the field, checking on each other, caring about what’s going on in each other’s lives. I think that’s what makes it special, the bond off the field and it carries over on the field," reported the NY Post.

Maybin is one of those guys that whether he is on the bench or asked to step in to a game situation, he contributes.  But it is more than just performance, it is the chemistry that is unique about this team.  “It’s a brotherhood here, it’s not just a group of guys. I think every day, guys are excited to show up to the field and play together and try to accomplish something special. This is a special group,” reported the Post.

“All of us are ready to help if called upon,’’ Frazier said, more words of growth. “It’s obviously a situation, you know you’d rather be there. But if we are called upon, I think any one of us is ready to contribute,’’ reported the NY Post.

The Yankees have been through the mill this season. Between injuries, disappointing calls and schedule challenges, they have had to step up, reset and perform at a much higher level.  It has been team first always.  The Savages have prevailed despite the odds, despite the set backs and beyond the expectations in light of their multiple stints to the IL.  Team first have served them well so far and they are just getting started.
