The B.O.A.R.D.: The Yankees are back ... again
Each October, the MLB postseason belongs to someone or something. Whether it's the Rally Monkey in 2002, Daniel Murphy in 2015 or David Ross last year, October is always dominated by a particular force. With so much good baseball packed into one month, it's sometimes tough to follow all the madness, so we created the Baseball October Arbitrary Rankings Device (The B.O.A.R.D.) to keep track of it all.
As Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez once tweeted:

Down two games to zero in the ALCS just a few days ago, the Yankees have stormed back with a vengeance at home, tying the series up at two games apiece. But there are only five spots on the B.O.A.R.D. and the Dodgers are continuing to fire on all cylinders over in the NL. So, which Yankees-related things made the B.O.A.R.D.?
Is it Aaron Judge, who seems to have awoken from his strikeout-induced slumber? What about New Jersey native Todd Frazier and his thumbs-down leadership? Could it be Sanchez and his prophetic words of wisdom?
Watch the video at the top of the post to see which Yankees made their way back on our list.
