New York Yankees: What Tigers-Yankees ALDS Taught Us »

If Baseball has taught me one thing it is this: Lay off the superstitious Kool Aid.If you believe in team destiny, then what happened to the Rays being THE  TEAM OF DESTINY?Did the gods of the game take a night off, oversleep, get angry at Joe Maddon's overtly rectangular glasses?

2011 New York Yankees Overrated and Out of the MLB »

The 2011 New York Yankees appeared powerful on paper, but they were always mostly mirage.

When Alex Rodriguez struck out to end the game, and the Yankee season, it was only fitting.Rodriguez hit .111 in the division series against the Tigers, and struck out with the bases loaded in the seventh inning in the decisive Game 5 that sent the New York Yankees home early once again in 2011.Rodriguez's poor postseason play is one of several [...]

ALDS Yankees vs. Tigers: Why Big Contracts Block »

Well, like most Yankees fans last night I stared at the television for a good 20 to 30 minutes after Jose Valverde struck out Alex Rodriguez to advance the Tigers into the ALCS.
