Yankees need to focus on present not future

I couldn't care less right now about the offseason decisions the Yankees have to make. There will be a time after the World Series when I'll be extremely interested in how the Yankee brass plans to improve a team that won more than 100 games in the regular season and made it to the American League Championship Series. But not after such a bad loss.

Scott Boras needs to stop talking about Johnny Damon's impending free agency. That's not a priority right now for Yankee fans. We generally like Damon, Red Sox history aside, but there's no need to talk about his future with the Yanks when the team is fighting to stave off an Angels team that has a little momentum on their side.

I also don't want to hear about the Yankees pursuit of the next Kei Igawa. If this kid Yusei Kikuchi is as good as they say he is, there will be plenty of time and fighting over him in the offseason. But the head of every Yankees player and official needs to be focused on beating the Halos.
