The Yankees won 96 games and a Wild Card berth in 1997, then strung together three straight World Series titles from 1998-2000. The Yankees won the AL Pennant again in 2001, then posted three straight 100-plus win seasons, including another AL Pennant in 2003. The Bronx Bombers advanced to the playoffs each year form 2005-07 before Torre was let go – making in 12 playoff trips in 12 seasons for the Yankees under Torre.
