Here's what Mike Lupica of the Daily News said on Tuesday about the Yankees stinking:
The way baseball works, they will probably break out all this week, even going against Tim Hudson, Mark Mulder, Barry Zito.
Lupica was right, in his way. The Yanks became the second team to ever sweep Oakland's big three in a three-game series. First team to do so? The 2001 Yanks, on the same dates -- April 27-29. The A's turned around and won the other six games in the season series from the Yanks in 2001 and the first two games of the 2001 ALDS before the Yanks rallied for a 3-2 series win to take on the Mariners.
