What is amazing is that the Yankees lost for the simple want of two or three reasonably good pitchers in the bullpen, the kind who would seem to be reasonably obtainable, and that the weakness went all season without being addressed.
Had these three players performed to expectations, I think it is quite possible that the Yankees would have been the franchise holding a parade last weekend.
