See what happens Girardi! When you bench your good players you get knocked out of playoffs. The Yanks got crushed 8-1 to the Tigers. Yankees ace pitcher CC Sabathia got knocked out of the game after 3.2 innings. He had 6 earned runs, let up 11 hits, and had 3 k’s. Tigers pitcher Max Sherzer had 1 earned run, 10 k’s, and let up 2 hits in 5.2 strong innings. The Tigers batting really showed up last night with HR’s by Miguel Cabrera, Austin Jackson, and 2 terrific HR’s by the MVP Johnny Peralta. The only Yankee run came from a Nunez triple and a Swisher hit. A-rod and Grandy eventually came in. Everybody knew the Tigers would win after a few innings. The Yanks really played poorly while the Tigers played on their A-game. That was the first time the Yankees got swept in a best of 7 series since the 1980 KC Royals. Congrats Tigers on winning the ALCS.
Will the Yankees play like this next year?
