That's baseball, Suzyn.
The Yankees looked like a team that flirted with destiny all season. No injury could hold them down en route to an 103-win season. They navigated through up-and-down seasons from key members of their starting rotation. Now, the chase for No. 28 is postponed until 2020, after Jose Altuve broke the hearts of Yankees fans everywhere with a series-winning bomb off Aroldis Chapman.
You can point to any number of reasons why the Yankees fell to Houston. Maybe it was the lack of situational hitting. Maybe it was the lack of pitching. What we do know is, the Yankees are now firmly in offseason mode, and it's going to be a really, really busy one.
