Yankees Offense Stays Home, Now the Rest of the Team Can Join Them

The Good

Endless speculation about whether the Yanks sign either Albert Pujols or Prince Fielder to be their full-time DH can now begin.

The Bad

Ivan Nova left the game after two innings with forearm tightness. I can't confirm this, but it sort of feels like he may have given up on the team after finding himself in a really tough spot. I'm not prepared to go there entirely just yet, but it feels that way.

The Ugly

An inability to score runs with the bases loaded is pretty ugly. The Yankees had plenty of opportunities tonight but simply didn't get it done. We can only blame ourselves.

I Can't Believe We're Paying For This

Cano hit another home run. Great.

Robinson Cano 2hr = $10
Curtis Granderson 1hr = $3
Nick Swisher 1hr = $3
Total = $16

The amazing thing Nova left the game after 2 innings and the pen only gave up 1 more run.

An outcome like that is a gift. But when half your lineup can't buy a hit, it's not enough.

While the Yankees' season ended badly, RJG's season did not. As usual, you guys were solid performers and you didn't need PEDs to do it (to my knowledge). Thanks for another great year.

I second Mr. Mahogany's comment; great year for RJG.
