The morning view from the New York tabs

DN cover Tuesday morning's Daily News back cover, left, says it all. Yes, Joe Girardi, why in the world did you yank David Robertson for Alfredo Aceves?

If you haven't already done so, be sure to give a look at my quick reactions to Game Three of the ALCS I posted last night and here's some links to what the New York papers were saying this morning:

Daily News beat writer Mark Feinsand got the first 2004 crack in, pointing out that at least the Yankees don't have to worry about blowing a 3-0 lead in this ALCS. Ouch.

Post columnist and great friend of Inside Pitch Mike Vaccaro said Girardi has continued to roll the dice and they finally came up craps.

Daily News columnist Bill Madden had an interesting pregame chat with an unnamed scout that foreshadowed Girardi's braincramp.

How about the Angels giving A-Rod that intentional walk in the ninth? Mike Scioscia might have been skewered the way Girardi is getting it today if that didn't work out.
