    Agree entirely. His Guardian Angel, or something, got him through that game. The announcers kept talking about how lively his "stuff" was. I did not see it. The shell-shocked Twins let him slip off the hook. The Astros would have massacred him.

    In this rust competition, surely it is Hicks who, by now, would be rustier than Stanton.

    Correct. No command whatsoever, but it was encouraging to see him fight through it and give up 0.

    Celebrate when you win the World Series. When there are no more games to play. Not before.

    Professional mlb baseball is hard and the play-offs are even more difficult. Life is too damn short and a baseball career is even shorter so they should celebrate the achievement of advancing in each round. Just don't go overboard about it.

    In burning Verlander for game 4 and Cole in Game 5, how does this setup the rotation in the event they get to the ALCS?

    G1: Greinke
    G2: Verlander
    G3: ???
    G4: Cole
    G5: Greinke
    G6: Verlander
    G7: ???

    do I have this right?

    Wouldn't Cole be on normal rest for game 3? Off day/G1/G2/Off day?

    The only time I find it overboard is celebrating making the one game wild card game. Seems a bit ridiculous. Division Clincher? Ok. Series clincher? Ok. Just making the Wild Card game? Nah.

    Twins are now 0-5 in Post Season series against the Yankees tying them with the Brookkyn Dodgers who also lost their first 5 Post Season series to the Yankees. On the other side Yankees have lost their first two post season series to four teams. NY Giants, Detroit, Angels and the Astros. Yankees have so far never lost their first 3 Post Season series against the same opponent.

    BB the other side is the Rays have deeper pen than Astroís and more guys they trust and do a lot more mix and matc. Astros are top heavy with big 3 and 2 relievers they really trust.

    I think everyone wants to avoid Houston's pitching however I definitely think there is some element of "be careful what you wish for" by rooting for the Rays. SSS alert but our offense actually has a higher OPS against Houston than it does against Tampa this year:
    vs. Houston: .758
    vs. Tampa: .739

    Our OPS at Tropicana Field this year is just .634. And our RHB have just a .586 OPS at the Trop. Our RHB have a .692 OPS at Minute Maid.

    They are both good teams capable of winning a 7 game series against anyone. That said Houston is simply better overall. Tampa was +113 RD on the season, Houston was +280.

    Tampa usually needs to beat you with good pitching and defense, Houston can beat you with good pitching and defense but they are also more likely to bludgeon you with their offense than Tampa is.

    That's not to say Tampa can't explode for 10 runs like they did the other night, just that of the 2 teams Houston is far more likely to do so in any given game.

    Agreed. Of the two I'd rather face Tampa but either way it's going to be a tough series.

    But how else will they promote the “Postseason” and coveted “Wild Card Champions” gear?

    I get celebrating the division - its a long season. I get the LCS - you’ve actually won your respective league championship. I get the World Series - goes without saying.

    But, simply making the playoffs via wildcard, winning the wildcard game, and the division series there’s really no need.
    If they ask who was our star, give them 25 names, and if you forget our names, just tell them we were Yankees.

    Iím partially rooting for TB simply because of 15 (which I was there for) and 17. Hate the Astros.


    But yeah Tampa has sick pitching. I think we can shut down that offense though, as we have for the most part this season. Think Yanks scouting department probably has figured them out more than Houston.

    Yeah, Houston has the big names, but overall their pen isn’t as good as TB’s. I want Houston out just because they are Houston. But neither one will be easy to beat, and their parks are both horrific in terms of them getting an advantage. The Trop in the playoffs is a different animal.

    Also have to respect what TB has accomplished with the relatively small payroll, crappy stadium and fanbase that doesn’t want to go there during the regular season.

    I havent looked, but Im willing to bet that is the case due to TBs pen being tougher than Houstons.

    And its not just the pitching we need to look at. The lineups are tilted much more in favor of the Astros.

    No doubt. I focused on the pitching because no one wants to face Verlander and Cole twice in a 7 game series but our offense has actually performed worse against Tampa's pitching. Like I said earlier, there are no easy opponents from this point forward.

    During a conference call today, Aaron Boone said that both CC Sabathia and Aaron Hicks are being considered to join the ALCS roster. Boone said Sabathia "looked sharp," and sounded more like a lock-in. For Hicks, the team is considering what role he would play and the lack of at-bats since August. Also said Yankees have made no decision on rotation for the ALCS. In terms of injuries, Britton (ankle) Chapman (hand) are both fine after Game 3 injury concerns.
