The gloomy air surrounding the New York Yankees after their embarrassing ALCS loss at the hands of the Detroit Tigers isn’t going away any time soon. The blame for the Yanks letdown is all over the board, from Joe Girardi to Alex Rodriguez. Reports now indicate that the Yankees plan to bring back manager Joe Girardi, and will once again rely on GM Brian Cashman to assemble a team for next season that can reach the World Series: “We fell short of our singular and constant goal, which is a World Series championship,” owner Hal Steinbrenner said. “However, I am proud of the accomplishments of this year’s team. We earned the best record in the American League and were one of the four teams to advance to the League Championship Series, despite having to overcome and fight through a series of long-term injuries to a number of our key players.” On the other end of the spectrum, a recent poll on nypost.com indicated that out of 461,000 voters, 77% would like to see A-Rod kicked to the curb. Personally, how can you blame them after his lackluster performance in the playoffs clearly showed that A-Rod is not the player he once was. It is unlikely, however, that the Yanks will pull the plug on him. Nick Swisher, on the other hand, may not be so lucky. The once fan favorite has now become the favorite whipping boy for Yankees fans, and they may get their wish to have Swisher gone as he is due to hit the free agent market. This will leave a void in the outfield for Cashman to fill, and the rumor mill has circulated names like Justin Upton and Torii Hunter as possible replacements. No matter what happens, the brass of the organization has vowed to do everything in their power to put together a team that won’t falter on the big stage next season. That is, assuming they get to the big stage.   The post Girardi and Cashman will return to Yankees, fans want A-Rod and Swisher gone. appeared first on New York Sports Kings.
