Recapping Yankees Postseason History: 2003


Set the scene. The New York Yankees had just had their World Series in the ALCS against the Boston Red Sox. The Yankees and Red Sox played seven epic games in that American League Championship Series including the epic come-from-behind win against Pedro Martinez and eventually Tim Wakefield. You know the one, the Aaron Boone walk-off home run that went sailing into the left field stands at Yankee Stadium sending the Yankees back to the World Series.

The Yankees had their emotional World Series so when the Florida Marlins came strolling into the Bronx you would think New York might have not noticed. Six games later they were going home and the Marlins had their second World Series title while George Steinbrenner and the Yankees faithful were sent home with their hats in their hands.

It was epic, but it sucked at the same time.
