For the 12 previous seasons the New York Baseball Yankees have been a constant in the postseason. And just like E=mc^2 nobody could really explain why. Theories abounded. Was it Torre? Was it the huge Yankee payroll? Was it Derek Jeter's gangster? No. It was none of those things.
The true secret to the Yankees success was only made evident when a brash young manager decided his team needed to eat healthier. Once the candy was removed from the Yankees clubhouse their level of play diminished to that of a glorified little league team. Not the one that wins the Little League World Series on ESPN2, but the one that gets their arses kicked just about every game they play. Without candy the Yankees cannot be expected to play good baseball. It's that simple. Bringing in Girardi was the most disastrous decision in Yankees history. Not because Girardi is a bad manager, but because of his counterproductive healthfood crusading.
There you have it. Investigative journalism at its best.
