This doesn't necessarily qualify as a tip from the 2004 Red Sox ALCS win, but it could add something historically to the New York Yankees' storied legacy.
The Yankees are without question the most successful franchise in North American professional sports history. With 27 world championships, no other team in any sport comes close.
It pains me to say that, considering I grew up in Boston.
However, the Yankees have done just about everything you could ask for in a franchise. They have won, and lost, in a variety of different ways.
Coming back from a 3-0 hole would only add to this team's storied legacy.
Think about it—we're talking about a team that pulled off the heist of the 20th century (Babe Ruth) to build a franchise that kept on winning and never looked back.
They've climbed to the top far more times than any other.
The one thing they've never done is come back from insurmountable odds. The 1958 Yankees fought back from a three games to one deficit to defeat the Milwaukee Braves in the World Series—only the second time in history that feat had been accomplished.
But that wasn't necessarily insurmountable. A 3-0 deficit is. Ask the Red Sox.
The Yankees have lost the first two games of a series to come back and win (1978 World Series), they've fought back from a 3-2 deficit (1952 World Series) and the aforementioned 3-1 deficit in 1958.
They can complete the superfecta by winning the next four games.
