The Yankees offense was historically atrocious. In the 268 completed postseason series prior to this one, only 19 teams averaged fewer than the 1.5 runs per game scored by the Yankees.
Also, their .188 team batting average in the entire postseason was the worst ever for a team that played in at least seven postseason games.
Yes, that's right—the worst.
It's really unfair to blame individual stars, as the whole offense underperformed.
Even still, the guys that were supposed to carry the team failed miserably. Alex Rodriguez, Nick Swisher, Curtis Granderson and Robinson Cano were all terrible at the plate, leading to one of the most abysmal offensive performances in playoff history.
These guys aren't the only ones on the hot seat, however. Russell Martin performed well in the postseason...when you take into account his pathetic regular season. His regular-season line alone should lead to his immediate departure this offseason.
By the time spring training 2013 rolls around, the Yankees may have a vastly different lineup than what we've seen in previous years.
