DETROIT -- Alex Rodriguez
and Curtis Granderson were still out of New York's starting lineup for
Game 4 of the AL championship series on Thursday, a day after the game

the third time in nine postseason games. A-Rod is 3-for-23 with no RBIs
in these playoffs.
Granderson joined him on the bench after another hitless night in Game 3
dropped the center fielder to 3-for-29 with 15 strikeouts. Granderson hit 43 homers with 106 RBIs
Nick Swisher, who was benched in
Game 3, returned to the lineup in right field. Eric Chavez started at
third base in place of Rodriguez. Brett Gardner started in Granderson's

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 [...]

NBC Sports Baseball Analyst Darryl Hamilton joins Fox Sports Tonight to talk about the Tigers dominance in the ALCS and Alex Rodriguez's attitude.
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.
