I really thought until the final out of last night’s game that the Yankees had a chance. The one feeling spanning Game five, and the whole ALDS was frustration. It felt like all series, the Yankees couldn’t hit with runners on, and obviously, if you can’t do that, you’re not going to win ball games.
Still, for a large part of the season, the Yankees were the one team that weren’t supposed to make the post-season. The turnaround they made was great. They just couldn’t keep up the momentum.
Personally, I’d like to see Cashman, Matsui, Small and Chacon resigned, the bullpen strengthened and Womack gone. I’d bring back Bernie, but not as a starter. Thing is, nothing out there for Centerfield looks really good right now.
