Yankees add three pitchers to roster for ALDS against Indians

Cleveland Indians (102-60) Vs.

According to FanGraphs, Cleveland has a 59 percent chance of moving on to the ALCS, but that could quickly drop if they aren't able to overcome the Yankees use of the best bullpen in the majors this season. They won 102 games, they have stars all over the field, and they nearly won the World Series a year ago. They've won 26 more since then. That's where the winning streak came from.

"I don't think it was a hangover". The 30-year-old was sidelined during Cleveland's run to the World Series last year following shoulder surgeries.

Believe us, there was and continues to be resistance to the current wild-card format. We were inconsistent hitting. Overall, New York's relievers have been as good as it gets, but certain individuals have had erratic stretches here and there.

No other team got that kind of performance, but Arizona's bullpen did just enough to preserve the victory. "I'm a supporter of winners". And they relied on their starting pitching.

The Indians have defended their AL title admirably, no doubt. He gave up three runs, allowed two more runners to get into scoring position with only one out and seemingly killed his team's season before it could get a turn at bat.

There is unfinished business this time.

Boston has had a terrific season, with a group of young likable stars who will be staples of this franchise for years to come, but it's still hard to shake the sense that Red Sox fans might find this team to be a little disappointing, since it stumbled for stretches over the course of the season. The Indians will be looking for redemption after blowing a 3-1 lead to the Chicago Cubs in last year's World Series, widely considered to be one of the best World Series of recent memory. "I think they'll beat the Cubs in the World Series". "I felt that when I came here, for sure". "This year, we're going to try to make sure we win the last game".

"You know what to expect", said left fielder Michael Brantley, who missed all of last season's postseason run with an injury, but was there for the entire ride.

"I know, if you throw in the wrong place, he's going to hit it a long way". "The Red Sox have (pitcher) Chris Sale, dominant pitching and we can play small ball or hit the long ball". The test of the 162-game regular season produced the obvious candidates. "The Yankees have a lot of offense so you can not get too comfortable with a 3-0 lead early in the game", senior Twins fan Brock Margenthaler said. Sonny Gray has been terrific for the most part, but after that NY has some concerns. Now we have the experience. The total has gone under in four of these teams' last six games at Chase Field. The unpredictable Betances may have advanced to the back of that line.

Dodgers. The slide was stemmed by the late season acquisition of Tiger ace Justin Verlander, who was having a poor season and seemed at the end of his career before having a great month just as Det. You try to move on.
