New York Yankees and Cleveland Indians line up for latest postseason clash

The New York Yankees cruised past the Minnesota Twins in the American League Wild Card game Tuesday evening by the final score of 8-4, so we now know the matchups for both series in the American League. "So, just one of those things".

Jeff McLamb, Lumberton - BOSTON RED SOX.

But in a short series, I think the Yankees are extremely risky. "I love when the atmosphere is at its best and teams are playing at their best".

"Again, you don't want to put the cart ahead of the horse, but if you're fortunate enough to win in four, you have your ace ready for the next series".

Here's what LeBron had to say about his baseball allegiances last October during the Indians' run to the World Series.

Having finally caught their breath after Tuesday night's marathon (though given the bullpen's role, perhaps it was more like a relay race), the Yankees announced their starting pitchers for Games 1 and 2. By setting a single-game World Series mark for home runs by a team. (It's still a little wonderful that Francisco Lindor didn't deposit one of those weak Aroldis Chapman sliders into the seats of a delirious Progressive Field crowd.) They have perhaps the best team in 50 years. However, that doesn't mean that NY doesn't have a very real chance to take out the defending AL champions. The Indians counter that with one of the best pitching staffs in baseball, starting rotation and bullpen. Bauer has a 10-4 record with a 3.93 ERA in 17 home starts this year, encompassing 103 innings. Cleveland has set itself up in good position to thrive at home, as Trevor Bauer and Corey Kluber will start the first two games.

New York Game 2 starter CC Sabathia, who spent eight seasons with the Indians, thinks James may be hiding his true feelings. No matter the outcome, fans will see some of MLB's best go at it for at least three games.

In a five-game series over seven days, pitch counts become less of a factor, and Girardi has the luxury of using his relievers as much as he needs to.

The Tribe raised a few eyebrows by tabbing Kluber for Game 2 rather than the series opener, though there is some logic to the decision. Yelling "Let's go!" while rounding third, Dozier was sure he gave the Twins the early spark they needed.

Gray was the losing pitcher in the decisive Game 5. The young core of the Astros led by Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa and George Springer is looking to lead the team to the promised land after going through the rebuilding process.

Chris Sale will get the start for the Red Sox.

Chapman has been very hot, and no closer is better when he's going well. and Warren been reliable all season pitching to a 2.35 ERA over 46 outings.

The Rockies' presumptive starter, Jon Gray, is MLB's second-hardest throwing starter. The wild-card round - with its do-or-die nature - is created to draw in that audience that's hungry for more sports and give them a taste of what's to come.
