The New York Yankees went a somewhat pedestrian 87–74 in 2000. Still, the Bombers finished atop the AL East for the third consecutive season, handled the Oakland Athletics and Seattle Mariners in the playoffs, and qualified for another World Series. In the Fall Classic, the Yankees faced their crosstown-rival New York Mets. The Yankees vanquished the Mets in five games to win the Subway Series and gain another championship. Furthermore, the Bombers became the first organization to three-peat since the Oakland Athletics in the early 1970s.
