Not sure where this disappointment ranks with others - but 2011 is the season that could have been. Best record in the AL, home field advantage, career milestones etc. and all it means is an exit in the ALDS to the Tigers??
The Yanks pitching was OK in this series - the games they lost were relatively close. This series was about a lack of hitting by the big payroll guys.
In addition to a recurrence of A-Rod's post season vaginitis, it appears as though Texiera contracted the disease as well going 3 for 18 (A-Rod batted 0-for in 4 of the 5 games played going 2 for 18).
Too many runners left on base, too many unproductive outs, this series should have been a blowout win for the Bombers plain and simple - the bats failed.
And now the season is done.
