The Yankees have the same problem the Orioles had - bats. Pitching isnt bad, just no bats for the most part.
Look at game 1 in the ALCS. Was it the great Yankee bats? Or was it a choke job by the Detroit closer? Yankee bats in the ALDS and this series would clearly suggest a choke job by the Detroit pitcher. And that is giving it away - just like JJ did pitching for the Birds. The only taking was on what was given, EOS. The evidence is there.
