It was the starting pitching that did in the Yankees along with very poor hitting. So the big bad Yankees went down 2 years in a row in the Monster Project.
I can honestly say that this has been one of the best projects that I have taken on in a long while and I look forward to what confronts me with this undertakening. Again it is my plan to play every World Series that has ever been played, before this stage of the project is complete. So I will continue to post my updates as I continue on this long journey.
