Super Huge Yankees fan here. The one bright star is no more Torre. He did a good job when he had Zimmer on the bench, but how many rings since then...0. If this is what it took, then I will have to take my lumps. Thank God football is here...Go Panthers. And I still hate the Red Sox.

Not a Yankees fan. Born and raised in Mass.

It's a shame that Joe might be done. He is probably the best manager out there.


Oh well--better Cleveland than the Yankees

Of course, last year I wanted Lou Pinella, and we see what he did with the Cubs.


That was pretty good. But seriously, he was 4 for 17 I believ in the series, he had his first post season RBI since 2004 with that solo homer in the 7th; he just doesn't play well in the post season for some reason. Don't get me wrong he is a great player and will probably win the AL MVP but I just think the Yanks need to go another direction.

Bring on Wade Boggs he would be a great bench coach!!

I am a HUGE Don Mattingly fan and would love to see him at the helm of the Yankees next year if Torre is inded let go.

I just hope they re-sign Posada and get rid Arod. He can't seem to play in the postseason; same for Matsui.

So he was what, 3 for 24 in the post-season?

Of having the highest payroll in the MLB by $40million and no World Series in 7 years?

Indians and Rockies: that will hold the nation's attention and bring in the big ratings(sorry to be an a..hole, bitter Yankees fan here.)

It would hold the attention of baseball fans who just love the nuances and mystique of the game. Two up and coming teams. Not to mention Boston and Indians will be a good series as well. Both have good offense, and both have good pitching.

It is great to see someone able to compete with the Yankees, given that the Yankees have basically unlimited budget.

Blaming ARod is just silly. The whole team didn't hit for shit.


Valid point...but don't forget the crappy pitching. It just seems the whole thing went down hill once they hit the postseason.

Always glad to see my hometown team win. Take that, Lebron.

A-rod, Jeter, Posada, Giambi all punched the clock but went straight to the breakroom, they probably spent over a billion dollars only to be eliminated 3 years in a row in the first round
