Yankees Go Down Without A Fight, Congrats To Texas Rangers The 2010 AL Champs

This is not going to be a long post. I'm a little bummed right now. The season is over and the Yankees went down without very much of a fight. They were outplayed the whole series and the Rangers totally deserve to advance to the World Series. There are no excuses to be made. The Yankees were dominated pretty much from start to finish.

People on Twitter are blaming Joe Girardi and Brian Cashman. Girardi did make some bad moves along the way but I can't put much of this on him. Same with Cashman. He put a winner on the field. His biggest fault in my opinion was signing Nick Johnson and not getting Johnny Damon, Hideki Matsui, or Vlad Guerero. Maybe he should have given Texas everything they wanted for Cliff Lee but I understand why he didn't. This loss is totally on the players. They didn't pitch. They didn't hit. You can't win games when you don't score. One lousy run tonight and it was a BS one at that.

Hat tip to the Rangers. They deserved it. Not sure I'll root for you in the World Series but congrats.

Peace, love and Forever Pinstripes,
