    So is Joe Torre going to retire? Will Arod stay in New York? The inquiring mind wants to know.

    Back before the start of the second half of the season, I remember them saying on ESPN that the Yankees were going to be having an easier schedule the second half of the season, cause many of the teams they were going to be playing were weak. I didn't expect them to get as close as they did to the Red Sox though. Like has been said before, you can't always buy a winning team. The Yankees always have the biggest payroll, but they haven't won the World Series in a while. I remember when they played the Marlins in the World Series. The Marlins had like a $500 payroll and the Yankees had like a $10 trillion pay roll, and they still ended up losing. Maybe it's time to rebuild the team. Their owner is a dickhead. He should be the first to go.

    Joe Torre is not the problem. Fire him, and alot of you players will leave with him. But that would be good for NY, because they need to rebuild. Signing Barry Bonds will only dig them into a deeper hole. They dont need a forty something head case close to retirement.

    They won all those rings in the nineties with no names...none were perennial all stars. Jeter only cuz he's popular, but look at Jeters numbers every year. Not great...solid, but not GREAT. But he's clutch.....case in point A Rod...big numbers in the reg. season, but nothing in the post.
    Pitching is what wins in the playoffs.....the Tribe has it, the Yankees dont. Pettitte and Rivera were the only two who were decent for NY. And both are old.
    They need to keep Chamberlain, and rebuild with the youth.

    But fuck em.....they got a madman for an owner. I dont feel bad for them. Arrogance will bring them down.

    How was the Yankees going to possible stop Boston with that pitching staff??? They were terrible. THe Indians were a better team all year than NY....the difference? The Yankees get all the exposure, and they had an MVP candidate.
    Regular season head to head is meaningless. IN the playoffs, you face the other team at its best, unlike in the reg. season were you may be facing some scrub starter.
    Obviously the Yanks were not all they were cracked up to be.....overrated.

    Still no love for Fausto Carmona???? That guy is unbelievable. ESPN needs to cover the other 30 teams in the MLB besides the Yanks and sox.

    Well I Disagree I Still Think The Yankees Are The Better Team But Clevand Stepped Up And Come Through,In The Playoffs The Best Team Doesnt Always Win. I Just Think The Yankees Have The Best Team To Face The Red Sox Even Though The Bats Werent Alive They Can Hit With Boston And A Huge Key They Have Rivera. If You Have A Lead In The Ninth Theres No Way Borowski Is Gettin The Save Against The Red Sox I Hope I'm Wrong Though.

    You Said Pettite And Rivera Were The Only Good Ones But Hughes Looked Pretty Good Too So Thats Exciting For Next Year.

    I have a friend who is a huge Yankee fan, and trust me Nicky Joe Torre WAS a HUGE part of the problem. Let's look at his track record in the playoffs and regular season over the past few years. Look at the shitty decisions, culminating last night with his decision to start Wang on 3 days rest instead of Mussina, Think about the number of young arms he has simply ruined by overuse. Personally I think he was getting senile. It was time to go.
    and they won in the nineties, because it was one miracle after another.

    Let's not forget. they played Baltimore and Tampa Bay 25 times after the break.

    How were the Yankees the better team? Did they have a better record? Are their starters better? Clearly not. Are their relievers better? Not really. Is the offense better? Clearly not. Is the manager better? I'm a better manager than Joe Torre and that isn't saying much. Wedge did NOTHING wrong in the series at all as far as I can tell. There is a laundry list of stupid decisions by Torre in that series.

    You WERE supposed to make the playoffs, remember? Over $200 million dollar payroll? Ring a bell? Preseason predictions? Horrible start? Any of this coming to you? So, you were overrated before the season, really overrated in the first 50 games, slightly overrated in the last 112 games, and WAY overrated in the playoffs. So when were they underrated?

    we dont have a payroll over 200 million. yea, we're always picked in preseason to win the east or atleast make the playoffs but thats only based on what happend the past year and on the offseason. You cant predict key injuries to a team. Theres alot of things that happend in a season that could turnout to be good or bad. This year we did so bad so early because of injuries to our pitching staff that resulted in bad starts from pitchers that werent unproven pitchers. If anything, we were underrated at that point of the season because we didnt have a healthy team so we couldnt showcase our full strength. If we didnt have so much injuries at the beginning of the year, in my opinion we would've won the east.
