After the Yankees were swept by the Tigers, we asked you to participate in our annual Take ‘em or Trash ‘em polls.

Let’s take a look at how you've voted so far, starting off with the stars that didn’t get it done:

1. Nick Swisher (88 percent trash): Swisher is set to be a free agent, but he’s going to have a hard time cashing in after another terrible postseason (.167). The Bleacher Creatures would probably prefer that someone else patrol right field. Given his likely contract demands, it would be surprising if the 31-year-old ends up staying with the Yanks.

2. Alex Rodriguez (73 percent trash): He's 37 years old. He’s due $114 million over the next five seasons. He just hit .120 in the postseason. His signature moment came when he tried to pick up some models sitting behind the dugout during Game 1 of the ALCS. Will the Yankees really be able to trade A-Rod?

3. Curtis Granderson: (53 percent trash): Granderson, 31, struck out 16 times in 30 postseason at-bats, and had just three hits. The Yankees will probably pick up his $15 million option, but then they may look to deal him.

• Others good as gone:

1. Andruw Jones (94 percent trash): Jones, who was playing on a one-year, $2 million contract, had a couple of strong months but ended up hitting .197 overall, .202 against lefties. He was left off the postseason roster.

2. Freddy Garcia (93 percent trash): The Yankees gave Garcia, 36, a one-year, $4 million in the offseason, hoping he could replicate his fantastic 2011 year. It didn’t happen. In 107 1/3 innings as a hybrid starter/reliever, Garcia pitched to a 5.20 ERA.

3. Casey McGehee (93 percent trash): He hit .220 with a .264 slugging percentage in 53 at-bats after being acquired in a trade from the Pirates.

• Coach under fire:

Kevin Long (56 percent trash): Fans clearly weren’t happy with the team’s .188 postseason batting average -- the lowest for any team in postseason history. The Yankees led the majors in homers during the regular season, but weren’t able to manufacture runs and grind out at-bats in October. The Yankees hitting coach is well-respected, though.

• You love them:

1. CC Sabathia (95 percent take)
2. Derek Jeter (94 percent take)
3. Hiroki Kuroda (94 percent take)
4. David Robertson (93 percent take)
5. Robinson Cano (92 percent take)
