After a disappointing ALCS sweep, the New York Yankees and their fans are left in shock and frustration at what took place.
After grinding out an ALDS victory over the Cleveland Guardians, nothing seemed to work in their favor once the series against the Houston Astros began.
The Astros completely and utterly dominated the Yankees to secure their fourth American League pennant and fifth overall trip to the World Series.
After the Yankees’ Game 4 loss on Sunday night, manager Aaron Boone gave a very blunt assessment of how it felt to go down so easily against the Astros and echoed Yankee fans’ sentiments.
Boone: “It’s an awful day. It’s an awful ending.”

Boone Sums Up Yankees’ Disappointment
There’s really no other way to put it.
The Yankees were completely outclassed by the Astros in this ALCS.
So naturally, Boone, the team, and the fans are going to be feeling this disappointment for quite some time.
It’s the fourth time in eight seasons that the Yankees have had their season cut short by the Astros.
The offense went quiet, with the exception of Harrison Bader, and the Yankees fell flat against a dominant Astros ballclub.
Disappointment and frustration are felt all around New York by Yankees fans.
The season ended in the cruelest of ways too.
Boone essentially summed up how everybody in New York is feeling after the Yankees went out with a whimper.
Now, the Yankees will focus on the offseason and do what they can to try and retain slugger Aaron Judge, who is hitting the free agent market and is sure to garner a ton of interest.
