"So the Yankees get dinged, and slotted into the wild card, because you cannot expect their best players to stay on the field or on the mound. Thinking again about ranges, though, the Yankees have a high floor; they have had a high floor for nearly 30 years, finishing above .500 for 29 consecutive seasons and making the playoffs in 22 of those. They also have a high ceiling, potentially winning 102-104 games if they max out the playing time of Aaron Judge, of Giancarlo Stanton, of LeMahieu and Gleyber Torres."
