Hmm, not really sure what to say about this one. The Yankees' lineup failed to show up for the second consecutive day as the Yankees lost 8-3, ending what could've been on of their most refreshing seasons in the Joe Torre era.

It got ugly early as Magglio Ordonez led off the bottom of the 2nd with a home run and Craig Monroe added a two-run shot of his own later in the inning, putting the Tigers up 3-0. An error by Alex Rodriguez would eventually cost the Yankees a run in the 4th and Detroit lit up the scoreboard for 3 more in the 5th to put the Yankees in a 7-0 hole before the Bombers even put a runner on base.

The Yankees didn't put a runner on until Robinson Cano led off the 6th inning with a single and didn't get much offense aside from that. Hideki Matsui recorded an RBI on a fielder's choice and Posada's two-run homer was too little, too late as there were already two outs in the 9th inning.

Well, now it begins. An offseason of hearing "Trade A-Rod" everywhere we go and it looks like Joe Torre might be out. Honestly I hope that the Yankees don't do anything too drastic. A little pitching can help, but I don't really think what happened the last few days was the result of a personnel issue. When it comes down to it, anybody can win a 5-game series.
