Found October 18, 2012 on Lady Loves Pinstripes:
Last night’s postponement due to rain in Detroit makes ALCS Game 4 a day later.And thanks to Mother Nature, it also means the New York Yankees cannot pitch their ace CC Sabathia if needed in ALCS Game 7, which reaching is a pipe dream anyway. But the weather does give the Yankees time to reconsider not starting Alex Rodriguez, which was the original plan.Now, as the Yankees wait on the brink of getting swept right out of the postseason, they might take the extra night off to look in the mirror, as all of this added nonsense has officially worn out the New York fan-base.From the lack of effort, to the useless hitting; to A-rod playing well in the wrong field and not at all on the right one; to skipper Joe Girardi’s nonsensical managing; to Nick Swisher’s whining has hit like a big tornado, and Yankee Universe is not braving it the storm too well.The anger, frustration and confusion surrounding the team is only getting worse, as each day seems to expose a new issue and no ones knows w...

After being benched in Game 1 of ALCS, Alex Rodriguez apparently hit on two female fans

Alex Rodriguez is having a rough postseason. And with Yankees president Randy Levine unwilling to commit to A-Rod for next season at this point, who knows if this is the last postseason that we’ll see A-Rod in pinstripes. One tidbit that probably won’t help A-Rod’s chances of returning to the Yankees is a report in the New York Post that A-Rod wasn’t fully focused on Saturday’s...

Alex Rodriguez: Like A Boss

 As a Red Sox fan, I love anything that has to do with the portrayal of the New York Yankees in a negative light. I am reveling in the fact that they are currently down three games to none to the Detroit Tigers in the ALCS and are just one game away from being swept [...]

What may turn out to have been New York's last chance to change the course...

Postponement favors Tigers in ALCS

The Detroit Tigers didn't win the American League pennant Wednesday night. But strategically speaking, they won the rainout. When Major League Baseball postponed Game 4 until Thursday, the Tigers benefited in two ways: CC Sabathia will no longer be available to pitch a potential Game 7 for the New York Yankees, and Detroit reliever Phil Coke -- who temporarily ascended to the...

Child, please: The 2012 Yankees are not the 2004 Red Sox

Warning: long rant ahead! I knew the Yankees were going to lose the game last night when I first saw Joe Girardi's bizarro world lineup. When you're going up against one of the best pitchers in baseball in Justin Verlander, you should have your best lineup. And Girardi didn't. Not only was Brett Gardner, somebody who should have gotten at-bats earlier, batting leadoff...
