Pie celebration? RIP?

By Andrew Marchand

After the Yankees won in the ninth inning, there was no pie in the face for anyone. Nick Swisher, who had talked about continuing the tradition in spring training, said he isn't doing it.

"I'm not the pie guy, dog," Swisher said.

It wasn't obvious who would have gotten the pie anyway. Derek Jeter scored the game-winning run on the passed ball. I'm not sure anyone would dare throw shaving cream in the Captain's face. Jeter was asked if he were disappointed not to be pied.

"What do you think?" Jeter said. "No, I'm not disappointed."

So A.J. Burnett's legacy may be over.
