1. OK with me!

For the Yankees, Good Is Not Good Enough in the Age of the Astros.

The 2010s will end without a pennant for the Yankees, the first time that has happened since the 1910s.

'HOUSTON — It happened so gradually that it was easy to miss. But when Jose Altuve’s searing drive crashed off the facade above left field here late Saturday night, it was finally official: The mighty Yankees, the most successful team in baseball history, have lost in the postseason more often than they have won.'>>>

4. Technically, the decade ends after 2020.

Sorry to burst your bubble. Yankees have one more shot.
