So, as we approached the 2015 season, I saw no possibility that I would be on the edge of my seat in the post season (I dunno, is this really the post season or a diabolic way for MLB to sell me a hat?).

Lets face it, we had a colossal collapse. Going from 8 games up in July to 6 games back 6 weeks later. That is a swing of 14.

Out of the gate, no way did I see this team compete for anything but last place, ok we are in last place in the post season, first ones knocked out. Man.

That celebration that took place last week looks like I thought it would, embarassing.

Any way, this was season 12 here on the YES network boards for me (coming up at the end of this month) and for 2016 

LETS GO YANKEES!!!!

Yanks lost their best run producer and Toronto played at a 125 win pace for a month and a half. There was more to it than just a Yankees collapse.

I still say Refsnyder should have been called up earlier to replace Drew. Also McCann should have been rested a lot more than he was this season. He played 135 games and was clearly worn down by the end of the year.

It's not just him though, it was the whole damn team outside of our rookies and Beltran.

He may have been exhausted, or hiding a knee injury or both. Whatever, his swing was gone after August.

...and it's not like we handicap ourselves at all with our backup.  Murphy is solid and ideally the better choice to start against Keuchel.

It's hard to leave your season's most productive hitter on the bench in a 1 game playoff.  The Interwebs are going crazy because he benched Ellsbury; imagine if he did the same to McCann.  I think it would have been the right move, but I don't think it would have mattered.

Not hard to believe at all, it's Joe " the over-thinker" Girardi after all. Too many times it's all about him and his "Look at me, I'm managin'!" ego, and not enough about just letting the team's best players play. Oh and Cashman after the game, taking no responsibliity and throwing players under the bus, saying he can't help it if players "don't produce." What a pair those two are.


As for the team itself, good season otherwise, there's always next year. And I love the sudden-death format, that was exciting regardless of the result.

I don't see it that way at all.  Teixeira was our best bat and we lost him.  At that point all the veterans including McCann, Gardner, Ellsbury, Rodriguez,  Headley, and Beltran just fell apart.   If it wasn't for contributions from Bird, Ackley, Refsnyder, and Heathcott during our tailspin we would have even missed the Wild Card game.

I respect your opinion, but IMO leaving Ellsbury out of the lineup last night was INSANITY. That was all about Girardi and his hubris, plain and simple, always thinking he needs to show the world he's "managing the Yankees everyone, look at ME!"

Ellsbury is a .265 hitter as a Yankee with a .593 OPS in the second half.   The problem wasn't that he wasn't playing.   The problem is we didn't have someone better to take his place.  The Yankees need a leadoff hitter that steals bases, gets on base, and plays a slick center field.  We don't have anyone like that right now and Ells and Gardy are only getting older.
