Yankees are going, going … gone
OK, Red Sox fans. Finally you have something to celebrate. The Yankees have met their maker, and it took just four games for the Tigers to do it.
Inconceivable, isn’t it, to think that the Yankees could be manhandled in such fashion? Well, yes and no.
As i said earlier, playoff baseball has become about the most unpredictable thing on earth. Kenny Rogers and Jeremy Bonderman spun absolute gems. Who knew that was coming, especially in the case of Rogers?
All the hype that was made over the Yankee signing Damon for all that money and making the blockbuster trade for Abreu? Both sound moves, but expensive ones, and all it bought the Yankees in 2006 was a measly one postseason victory.
Just further proof that in October, it’s pitching, pitching, pitching, pitching. In ’04, the Sox had Schilling, Pedro, Lowe, and Foulke. And that carried them. The team with the most arms wins every year.
I like these Tigers the rest of the way. Well, I’m going to the Bay Area for the ALCS, so i’ll post again then.
