The Yankee Meltdown, Cont'd

I was right in October- the Yankee dynasty is over. Their pitching is a mess, Giambi's been even worse than last year, and their latest stab at a shakeup has as is centerpiece the anointing of Tony Womack as starting leftfielder. Here's an indication for how bad it's gotten (via SI):

The [New York] starters provided only five quality starts (at least six innings with three or fewer earned runs) in those first 19 games, including none in one streak of 11 games. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the 11 outings without a quality start was the worst such streak for the Yankees since earned and unearned runs were officially differentiated in 1917.
Ladies and gentlemen, your AL East champion Baltimore Orioles.

if it won't be the sox (and at this rate, i hate to say it won't), it couldn't happen to a nicer bunch (well other than the 'roid fueled, perjuring sammy sosa).
