"Playoff" Preview?

In the early days of this blog when the Yankees made the playoffs each year I used to do a Playoff Preview post before the start of the playoffs. It's been a couple of years but the Yankees are back in the playoffs, sort of. I'm not sure how I feel about the Wild Card Game - will it still feel like the Yankees are in the playoffs if they only win one game?

As a fan I can't help but be pessimistic - the Yankees have lost six of their last seven, they have no hitting outside of Beltran and Bird and they are going up against the best pitcher in the American League.

Still, considering that talent-wise this team is really not very good, certainly not championship-quality, it is fun that they were able to be as successful as they were this regular season. And who knows, maybe somehow they will sneak by tonight...
