Well, the Yankee season has officially come and gone. The New York Yankees fell to the Detroit Tigers 8-1 in Game 4 of the American League Championship series. The game was rough from the beginning as CC Sabathia gave up a 1st inning RBI single to eventual ALCS MVP Delmon Young. As the Yankee offense sputtered against Tigers’ starter Max Scherzer, Detroit’s offense woke up in the power department with home runs from Miguel Cabrera and two from Jhonny Peralta. Now, the Yankee offseason storylines will begin to unfold and hopefully some answers to the hitting slumps that occurred over this postseason.
On this postgame show, I spoke with Yanks Go Yard editor Chris Carelli to talk about the game as well as the key storylines facing the Bronx Bombers this offseason. We play a little bit of keep or dump with the likes of Nick Swisher, Curtis Granderson, and Alex Rodriguez. We discuss the future contract situations of Robinson Cano and Rafael Soriano. Finally, Chris and I give our lasting impressions from this wild 2012 season that saw the Yanks still win 95 games and an AL East title with their vast amount of injuries.
Keep an eye out for more Yanks Go Yard shows during the offseason as we will keep you posted on all the rumblings from the Hot Stove!
