Cleveland? You mean the game 9 k's through 4+ innings? Night and day. Never came close to looking that comfortable tonight.

nothing to challenge there. That throw out at home could be the play that sends Houston to the WS.

Exactly
The only point it proves is that we're lucky Joe is the manager.

Joe waited too long again. Left Kahnle in for too long. Obvious he didn't have his best stuff. 7th game full bullpen, Should have pulled him before McCann.

If the Yanks somehow come back, this will be an all time great game. But you gotta think this is just Houston's turn. Playing well, I'd still root for them over LA

Hell of a year. This is the most at peace I've ever been watching my team's season end. The future is bright.

+1. It was a great run. I wish next season started tomorrow, though. I don't want to wait!

Are you guys going to watch the WS? I can't get into games when the Yankees aren't playing.

A manager has to assess whether the pitcher is genuinely off, or just made one mistake, or isn't even making mistakes and the ball just happens to be falling for hits. You can't just take guys out as soon as something bad happens. Then you're at risk of getting later in the game and having no dependable relievers left. It burns out your bullpen every time you even start getting a new pitcher up. And you'd definitely be screwed in an extra inning game.

Definitely... Anyone who follows the warrior code of Bushido knows that a 'good death' is a reward in itself... I thought the Yankees were the inferior team throughout the postseason and that they came within the WS is pretty awesome. The future is bright

It will be interesting to see if the Yankees try to save money to avoid the luxury tax or if they go all in this off-season. I'm wondering who will be back out of Cashman, Girardi, Tanaka, CC, and Frazier. I hope they all are as long as the deals are reasonable (for the players).

Great season and an uncertain future. Enjoy the ride!
Yankees are doing it the right way.
Bryce’s price might be too high for reason. Angels usually do that Stupid stuff. Nationals ownership is ignorant and he should want to leave.
Yanks are stable and building the right way.
We don’t need starphuchs but do Starphuchs want to come here?
Anger sells, don't buy!

Funny that Girardi's job is now on the line after playing an entire season with house money and getting one game away from the WS... and with the moves Cashman has made, they're saying he may not be invited back either... but that's baseball.

Whether starphuchs want to come here or not isn't the issue; I think the days of true Yankee starphuching are over... Bonn's mentioned how the new Steinbrenner's don't come anywhere near George's appetite for money dumping. We don't keep Cano for 300 million, and I don't think we're ever pulling another Arod contract. No matter who's available and wants to come here.

We've got a frighteningly impressive New Core. If they can just stay healthy and our franchise catcher learns to catch. Now we just need to grow some starting pitching...

That's probably right. Ironically Cano was probably a much better investment than Ellsbury. But I think most of these huge contracts don't pay off.

If we're carrying Cano at $300 million all this time (and to stay here, I don't think he's signing for the $240 million he got from Seattle) is there really any patience about developing yoots? I don't know. I absolutely loved Cano, but Ellsbury and Castro at 70% of that amount seem like better investments for the place we're at now. In my humble, hindsighted opinion.

Hmmm. That is a good point that they might not have started rebuilding if we kept Cano. Then it wouldn't be worth having him.
The 70% is a bit misleading though. Ellsbury plus Castro make $32 mil and Cano makes $24 mil this year. Cano has gotten significant MVP voting 2 of the past 3 years. It would have been worth it in terms of team impact of the players but not if it stopped the Steinbrenners/Cashman from rebuilding.

just announced that Joe Girardi won't be back... I thought he made mistakes and wasn't exactly beloved but I don't think there is anyone available who'd be better
