New York Yankees
The Detroit Tigers beat the New York Yankees 8-1 in game four of the ALCS, last night at Comerica Park from Detroit, MI.
Tigers sweep series over Yankees 4-0.
W - Max Scherzer (1-1), L - CC Sabathia (2-1).
CC Sabathia bad history in the postseason showed up last night by going 3.2 innings pitched, allowed 11 hits, gave up 6 runs (2 HR's), walked 2 and struck out 3 batters.
Derek Lowe and David Robertson both each gave up a solo HR coming out of the bullpen.
Nick Swisher had an RBI double.
Eduardo Nunez had a triple and scored a run.
Thoughts on the game:
What an utter disgrace watching this team compete against the Tigers in the ALCS which was unwatchable if you were a Yankees fan.
As soon as Derek Jeter went down with that ankle injury he twisted last week. You knew right there they weren't going to the world series.
Still, that shouln't be an excuse for the Yankees in general, but yet they were awful and I don't know they even beat Baltimore in the ALDS.
The Yankee hitters coudln't do anything in that series and sure as heck couldn't do anything against the Tigers, but it was worse in this series.
Alex Rodriguez, Curtis Granderson, Nick Swisher, Robinson Cano and Mark Teixeria were all awful during the entire postseason.
It was so hard to watch those get out, after out, after out, after out, after out! At least the pain is now gone and we don't watch this horrific team anytime soon until next April.

According to an ESPN New York report, New York Yankees ace CC Sabathia will have his left (pitching) elbow looked at by Dr. James Andrews during the offseason. The Yankees confirmed the news on Saturday. Sabathia endured elbow stiffness in August of this past season and it eventually resulted in the Yankees placing him on the 15 day disabled list. The assumption right now is that...
Fresh off being utterly dominated by the Tigers pitching staff and getting swept out of the playoffs for the first time in over 35 years, there is more prospective bad news for the Yankees. Sports Illustrated is reporting that the Yankees want C.C. Sabathia to have his elbow examined this offseason. Sabathia, who has been [...]
From Marc Carig:The moment he released the pitch, a look of disgust swept over the face of CC Sabathia.
The desperate Yankees needed something close to perfection from their ace. But he had just made another mistake, one that Miguel Cabrera turned into a two-run homer and a 4-0 lead. Sabathia winced. It was all he could do as the Tigers pounded him in an 8-1 victory that clinched...
C.C. Sabathia was both dominant and horrible in the 2012 postseason. Such is the case when a team must battle through adversity and keep their intensity level at its highest point for a month. The New York Yankees were swept out of the American League Championship Series two days ago by the Detroit Tigers. This was with Sabathia on the hill. Sabathia struggled, and the Yankees...
New York Yankees 1 — Detroit Tigers 8
The Yankees season comes to an end in tonight’s 8-1 loss to the Detroit Tigers.
CC Sabathia took the mound in tonight’s potential elimination game. The Yankees ace was not able to give the Yankees a quality effort. Sabathia’s start didn’t go well from the beginning when Delmon Young got the Tigers an early 1-0 lead in the 1st...
DETROIT – The Tigers’ possible American League Championship Series clinching celebration was put on hold for at least 24 hours Wednesday night when Detroit’s game with the New York Yankees was postponed because of threatening weather.

Yankees ace CC Sabathia will have his pitching elbow examined by Dr. James Andrews following inflammation that landed him on the disabled list in August.
An MRI showed a bone spur in the left elbow and the Yankees believe it has existed since he pitched for the Cleveland Indians from 2001-08.
''Yeah, you have to be concerned, because like I've said, I've never had...
With CC Sabathia and the Yankees trailing 2-0 in the fourth inning, and fading fast, Sabathia needed to get out of the inning quickly. After a single by Omar Infante, AL Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera stepped in and hit a monstrous homer to left field to double the Tigers lead to 4-0.
The Tigers weren't done after Cabrera's homer, though. Sabathia struck out...
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...
Without a wimper and without a fight the Yankee Empire as we know it may have fallen for good.
Thursday evening the Detroit Tigers completed the four game sweep of the once feared Yankees after an 8-1 victory from Comerica. Park.
With their backs against the wall, CC Sabathia was anything but impressive when it mattered going only 3.2 innings allowing 6 runs (5 earned) on 11 hits...
The rain that poured onto Comerica Park on Wednesday night, shortly after Game 4 of the American League Championship Series between Detroit and the visiting New York Yankees was postponed by threatening weather, could wind up dampening the Yankees' parade much more than the Tigers'. And manager Joe Girardi might find himself wondering why he didn't gamble and pitch...
Game 4 of the AL championship series between the New York Yankees and Detroit Tigers was postponed because of bad weather in the area Wednesday night - although Comerica Park was still dry when the game was called.
Wednesday night's game was rescheduled for Thursday at 4:07 p.m., when Game 5 was originally slated to be played. Detroit leads the best-of-seven series 3-0.
This postseason has been interesting to say the least. About two weeks ago, I would have told you that the Yankees were going to sweep the Orioles in the ALDS. Their ace was pitching Game 1; the winningest pitcher in postseason history was going in Game 2, followed by their most consistent pitcher all season in Game 3. As we now know, the Yankees-Orioles series wasn’t that easy...
