If you are a Yankee fan, then this is a postseason series that will hope to quickly forget about. The Detroit Tigers completed a four game sweep over the Bronx Bombers to advance to the World Series. Let’s just be honest, the Yankees did not deserve to win. They looked absolutely pathetic throughout this postseason.
All the blame has been placed on third baseman Alex Rodriguez, but does he really deserve it? Sure, he earns a ridiculous amount of money and he has been reduced to a bench player, but what about Robinson Cano, Curtis Granderson, and Nick Swisher? Arod never seems to help his cause with the rumors that he tried to pick up a fan in the stands. Isn’t he with someone? That is for a different article. The blame can’t be put on one player that would just be ridiculous. This entire team went into a slump.
The Yankees gave up four home runs for the night, two to Jhonny Peralta, and one to Austin Jackson and Miguel Cabrera. The Yankees have not been swept in the postseason in over 30 years. The Tigers’ pitching staff held the Yankees to six runs for the entire series. Delmon Young was named MVP of the series. The Tigers can sit back and watch as the Cardinals and Giants battle it out to represent the National League in the World Series. Currently the Cardinals have a 2-1 game lead over the Giants. They are currently in Game 4 with the Cardinals winning 2-1 as the fourth inning begins.
