BASEBALL: The Bandwagon Stops

Defeat is an orphan:

Four hours after they were eliminated by the Detroit Tigers, the New York Yankees pulled up to Yankee Stadium in three buses late Saturday night, greeted by fewer than a dozen fans.

With as many police as supporters on hand, most of the players quickly went to their cars and drove away. . . Backup infielder Andy Phillips was the only player who talked with reporters.

Ouch. In all seriousness, this one has to hurt worst of all for Yankee fans (well, except for 2004), given how rapidly the team just froze up and went down without a fight. Like I said: just good pitching and a short series. But that doesn't help you through the winter months.
