The Boston Red Sox were the best team all year, and they were the best team in the ALDS against the Yankees.  Boston hit better and pitched it better than the Yankees, and their manager pushed all the right buttons. Alex Cora made all the right moves, and Aaron Boone did not. Giancarlo Stanton can’t go 0-4 with three strikeouts in game 4 at the Stadium, but he did. Normally when you win 100 plus games it goes into the books as a good season but not when you’re the Yankees. Last year’s team was one win away from the World Series, and this year’s team did not make it past the ALDS. Not good enough, even against a team that’s better than you.
