Yankees general manager Brian Cashman held a postmortem press conference on Friday following the team’s season-ending ALDS loss to the Red Sox and said, simply, the Red Sox were the better team.

“Boston proved they were better in the marathon,” Cashman said. “We had a chance to change that equation and prove that we could be better than them in a sprint and they had none of it. Three of our four starters got their hat handed to them. Most of our offense went south. We just did not have a good series. And you have to credit them and their franchise for what they were able to accomplish, and now because of it, they are moving forward and they get the chance to take a shot at the defending world champions.”

They certainly do and will begin the ALCS Saturday night against the Astros.

The Yankees, of course, lost the Division Series in four games last week.

Aaron Boone also spoke at the press conference and explained some of his pitching decisions during the series.
