The Detroit Tigers have put the Yankees in off-season mode, and it took only 4 games to do it. You know in the long run, the Yankees may have had less drama to deal with had the Orioles taken them out in 5 games. I have no doubt that this will be the start of […]

It’s LCS Time!

Last night, the Tigers got a scare thanks to Jose Valverde and Raul Ibanez – but the game ended with Yankees fans hearts on the floors as they watched Derek Jeter’s postseason come to an end.

LDS Finale & Thoughts On Last Night Winners/Losers

ALDS Orioles @ Yankees – 5:07pm on TBS Last night’s game was a drag to watch if you ask me. Sure, a 1-1 game going 13 innings sounds exciting but that games story wasn’t great pitching, it was the total inability on both sides to make timely contact. Heck, the most timely contact of the […]
