One by one, the Yankees headed toward the bench.
At different times in the playoffs, New York manager Joe
Girardi has pulled Alex Rodriguez, Curtis Granderson and Nick Swisher to ride
the pine. But Rodriguez took most of the heat, publicly, after getting benched
on three occasions.
His woes overshadowed the real surprise of the postseason
-- Robinson Cano's inability to hit anything. After nine playoff games, the
Yankees second baseman finished with a .075 batting average and .098 OBP.
With a minimum of 35 playoff at-bats, Cano's OBP is the

The New York Yankees were eliminated from postseason play after they were swept away by the Detroit Tigers in the ALCS. Anything that could wrong for the Yanks did go wrong. Lack of hitting, a broken ankle, and scouting for babes rather than playing baseball all contributed to their ultimate demise.

(Eds: Adds photos. With AP Photos.) By MIKE SCHMIDT For The Associated Press There was a time when Alex Rodriguez was touted as the guy who could relieve us of Barry Bonds as the home run king. He was young, healthy and an MVP contender every year.
