As the New York Yankees gear up for Game 3 against the Houston Astros TheStreet sits down with former trainer Gene Monahan who gave his perspective on the young team.

"They [the Yankees] are a wild bunch," Monahan, the Yankees former head athletic trainer and a 49-year member of the organization, told TheStreet on Tuesday, Sept. 26, at an event for Conair, of which he is a spokesman. "What makes them great is they are a wild bunch of young people."

"I think they are going to do very well," added Monahan, who has seven World Series rings, a testament to the powerhouse that is the Yankees. He was wearing one of the diamond-encrusted rings at the event. 

The Yankees will square off tonite in a must-win game three at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. The game will be broadcast on FS1 the sports affiliate of Fox News, a subsidiary of 21st Century Fox (FOXA) .

"It's a young team. They have their veterans, which are great," he said. "If they get off to a good start and win that first wildcard playoff game and get their pitching ready, they're going to be hard to beat."
