The New York Yankees’ season is over.The Bombers were eliminated by the Detroit Tigers in game five of the ALDS tonight, 3-2.

People will surely question Joe Girardi’s moves in this game — he used SEVEN pitchers. But it’s the offence that really let down the Yanks.

Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira hit .118 and .167 respectively in this series.

When you take a step back, this Yankees team probably was never good enough to legitimately compete for a world title.

I mean, come on, Ivan Nova was their No. 2 starter.

But they’re the Yankees, so this is definitely a disappointment.
