A picture is worth a thousand words and to save you time I'll condense Joe Torre's words to just this "Ah, Crap!" Indians 6 Yankees 4. Bring on the Red Sox.
The Tribe jumped on the Yanks early and often then held on for the win. While the New York media wants to continue to blame the invasion of the bugs in game 2 for the Yanks losing the ALDS and Yankee players like Johnny Damon refuse to acknowledge that the Indians are the superior club, only a fool (I'm talking to you TBS announcing crew) can't see that the Yankees are an old, tired, overpaid, unmotivated team with absolutely ZERO pitching.
Sure Joe Torre is a class act and its sad that he's gonna get canned but hey, just like Anakin Skywalker he knew what he was getting into when he went to work for the Emperor. So if you ever wondered what 200 million dollars buys it gets you this....a 4 game ass whipping from the Cleveland Indians. Paul Byrd got out of jam after jam, Grady Sizemore showed a national audience what Cleveland fans have known for ages that he is a superstar in waiting. Jhonny Peralta and Casey Blake outplayed the vaunted Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez (while making about 50 million less a year).
Game 1 of the ALCS is Friday night in Boston.

If the media runs or prints one more story on JLo being pregnant I'm sending every media outlet a bag of poop in protest. JLo is a no talent assclown with a big azz.
