The 2012 Yankees were a lot of things, but consistent wasn’t one of them. After getting off to a slow start, the Yankees were faced with losing two powerful components of their pitching staff. After having a 10 game lead until mid-August, the Yankees’ offense fell asleep. The Yankees merely stumbled into the playoffs, but were determined to prove themselves. After defeating the Baltimore Orioles in Game 5 of the ALDS, the Yankees entered the ALCS against the Detroit Tigers. And in just four games, the Tigers proved to be the better team, and advanced to the World Series, while the Yankees watched the celebration from the visitors dugout at Comerica Park.
