    I still cannot get over these stats:

    .
    A collective .157 batting average with 36 strikeouts in four games.  Take Ichiro out of the picture and it’s much, much, worse.  It’s like Al Leiter was batting for the Yankees in the whole series.  How does that happen?

      I still can not get over Swisher’s stats: a .250 avg.? “How does that happen?” Through the intersection of the incompetence of a front office that puts together a lineup of hitters that do not produce in October, and the meeting of that lineup with a pitching staff such as Detroit’s in the same month… While a collective .157 batting average or “case of Yankee flu” might not have been foreseeable, this four-game sweep certainly was.

      How? Small sample size.
