Buffalo News (New York)October 21, 2012 Sunday Dear Editor:The Yankees have been eliminated and gone into hibernation. Unfortunately Cano, Rodriguez, Granderson and Swisher were already there long before they were swept by Detroit. Let's face it, without Ibanez's heroics, the Yankees wouldn't have gotten by Baltimore. Along with occasional contributions, Teixeira, Suzuki, Martin, and decent pitching kept the Yankees in most games.A-Rod was absolutely useless while failing miserably to drive in runs when the opportunity was there. It was either a strike out or hit into a double play. I shuddered every time he came up with runners on base with one or no outs, hoping he would strike out so as not to hit into a double play. Granderson gave Rodriguez a run for the money to see who could strike out the most. Cano and Swisher were also big failures.The Yankees are going to have to find a few consistent hitters over the winter. The old timers, Jeter and Ibanez, are n...

Yankees Exercise $30 Million Worth of Options on Two Players Who Went 7-for-70 in MLB Playoffs

The Yankees are known to spend a bit too much money on washed-up stars. They've also been talking about changing their ways and trying to stay under the luxury tax threshold moving forward. But they're willing to pay for established, premium in-house talent -- that is, if the talent produces. Oh, the irony that New York just exercised two player options that will cost...

Letter to the Editor: They rolled over

The New York PostOctober 21, 2012 SundayDear EditorEveryone has an opinion on the Yankees' embarrassing ALCS showing. What cannot be debated is the entire team's carefree demeanor throughout the playoffs. This is about a group of men who showed no heart, no fight and no passion for the game. They rolled over and played dead, a huge smack in the face to every loyal Yankees...

Have you looked closely who built the SF Giants? It just happens to be the Yankees in exile

Thank God we didn't have to play the Giants. It would have taken them two games to sweep us in four. We wouldn't have gotten a hit - not one - and the Giants would still be batting in game two. The lead would be something like 104 to 0, and Nick Swisher would be pitching for us. Girardi would still be keeping A-Rod on the bench - resting him for the critical moment - and...
