Now It's All Chien Ming Wang's Fault

So the Joe Torre For Life Squad is putting all the blame on second-year starter Chien-Ming Wang for the Yankees loss this postseason. Granted, Wang was awful in his two starts against the Indians, but who was the genius that decided he should start on 3 days rest for the first time in his career? Joe Torre. Who decided that an able veteran like Mike Mussina wasn't capable of starting Game 4? Joe Torre. Who's the $25million-a-year player who went 4-for-15 with a meaningless solo home run (after numerous opportunities to drive in runs with runners on throughout) in the series, adding yet another playoff no-show to his resume? Alex Rodriguez. Who hit into double-play after double-play in key clutch situations throughout the series? Derek Jeter. But unlike the the perennial playoff bust that is Alex Rodriguez, at least Jeter has a long history of performing when in the postseason. Of course, none of that matters to the Joe Torre For Life Squad, after all, they're not the ones shelling out $200million+ to make it to the World Series, unlike you or me, they just get to go to Yankee games for free because they're the so-called "experts" demanding that Torre never lose his job.
