…is what Tyler Kepner characterizes the season by the Yankees in one of his blogs yesterday afternoon.

Everything came together for the Yankees this year. They shed a lot of unnecessary contracts, and actually trimmed payroll this year, in spite of a $450 million spending spree. A-Rod stopped trying to do too much and became more natural, aided by Tex and Swisher.

The Yankees finally had good arms after the struggles of Brown, Johnson, Pavano, et al.

So this year was peaceful and easy….definitely!
