How the Yankees Got Swept Out of the Post-Season

The Yankees were swept out of the playoffs for the first time in 32 years. The team that's usually at the top in terms of wins and salary was swept by the Detroit Tigers Thursday night in an 8-1 loss in the AL championship series.

“When you can’t hit, you can’t win," NPR's Mike Pesca said Friday.  “Everyone was terrible.”

Pesca also says the team's post-season slump cannot be blamed on its aging or injured stars Rodriguez, Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera.
