Who Stays and Who Goes After Yankees' Embarrassing Postseason?

Zachary D. RymerMLB Lead WriterOctober 19, 2012

The New York Yankees barely made it out of the American League Division Series against the Baltimore Orioles. In the American League Championship Series, they never had a chance against the Detroit Tigers.

The Bombers were swept in four games for the first time since the 1976 World Series.

The Yankees couldn't hit a lick against the Tigers, scoring five runs in the ninth inning and exactly one run in all the other innings. For that matter, the Yankees never even led in the series. They were dominated that thoroughly.

The sweep at the hands of the Tigers should serve as a wake-up call for the Yankees. Changes need to be made, and they need to be made now.

But what kind of changes?

B/R Pop Culture Lead Writer Gabe Zaldivar and I kicked around a few notions after the Yankees were defeated in Game 4 of the ALCS in Detroit. As they usually are, our ramblings were caught on video.
