Evil Ones Are Most Futile Post-Season Team

William Perlman/The Star-Ledger
The Pinstriped Posers were swept out of the playoffs in four straight by the Detroit Tigers last night. But an even better factoid is that the Spankees had a .188 team batting average over their nine post-season games—the worst ever in MLB playoff history through at least seven games. The extent of their futility is only made sweeter by the fact that they are a bigger mess than the Red Sox this off-season. The humiliation and pending trade of A-Fraud, the possible career-threatening injury of their Captain, the ridiculously burdensome contracts that honeycomb their roster—all will face Brian Cashman as he waits on the 14th tee this week-end. Couldn't happen to a better bunch of guys.
