Bronx Bummers....


The New York Yankees have just been swept by the Detroit Tigers.  It is a good thing I did not bet. :)   I do not understand at all how the Yankees lost steam at this point.  They faced so many things during the regular season to then end on this bad not.

Arod, Cano, Swisher, Grandersonm Chavez - all great hitters were just dead at the plate.  It just does not make any sense.  To add to the hardship, Yankee's captain Derek Jeter broke his ankle and will be out for four months!

I was hoping to see the Yankees win their 28th championship... oh well.. can't win them all right?  The Yankees need to make big changes.  The salaries do not match with their performance during this post season.  Performance should be a key factor in deciding salaries.  It is unfair for a player to make 20 or more million dollars a year and not be able to hit a ball a little leaguer can hit.

Moreover, the umpires have been making bad calls against the Yankees which I found troubling.  At first I was against using replay, but after witnessing the disaster from the limited cognitive abilities of human umpires, I now think we do need replays.

Anyhow, better luck next year.
