Bauer to start for Indians in Game 1 of ALDS

Bauer to start for Indians in Game 1 of ALDS

The Yankees might be getting a small break by facing Trevor Bauer in the first game instead of Corey Kluber.

The Indians took the game and eventually the series as New York's Joba Chamberlain was overwhelmed by the bugs that flew in from the lake and swarmed the Yankees pitcher. David Robertson and Chad Green (perhaps the team's best reliever) probably won't pitch in game 1 on account of their work in the Wild Card game, but Aroldis Chapman, Dellin Betances and Tommy Kahnle can give the Yankees quality in their innings, as long as it's not another game of their starting pitcher lasting just one inning.

However, Kluber will not start game one for the Indians.

That photo is a decade old, as it was snapped during the 2007 ALDS when the Yankees met the Indians in Ohio.

Indians over Nationals in seven: The Indians are loaded, as evidenced by their 22-game winning streak, and full of star power, with a future Hall of Fame manager at the helm in Terry Francona. "I know we have a group of guys where everybody is ready to step up and do their part". Joe Girardi said Wednesday that Tanaka will pitch Game 3 when the series moves to the Bronx. "They've really been on a roll the last 50, 60 games, playing as well as anyone". The postseason's Division Series' is played as a best-of-five elimination set.

North Korean ship smuggling huge weapons cache seized in Egypt
It was unclear whether North Korea received payment for the estimated $23 million worth of arms smuggled in the shipment. The UN report described the deal as "largest seizure of ammunition in the history of sanctions" against North Korea.

In 11 starts with the Yankees, Gray went 4-7 with a 3.72 ERA. Didi Gregorius led the team by going 1 for 3 with a three run home run, while Aaron Judge added a two run blast and Brett Gardner added a solo homer.

"Top to bottom, they have a really good lineup", Gray said. "That's what I meant to do in Game 7 previous year", he says.

They ran away with their division again, and streaked to history, 102 wins and home-field advantage throughout the AL playoffs.

So how do you pick a victor of this series when they both can hit and pitch well? As great as CC Sabathia has been this year, he's made it past the sixth inning just once in his past 15 starts. Usually, it's not a big deal when they let up a hit or two, hence the superior ERA, FIP and WHIP. They were solid and steady most all year, played nearly as well on the road as home and have a strong fan base, but were not playing their best ball as the season wound down. "They can do a lot of things offensively, and they're well balanced".

"I think on a number of reasons it makes good sense", Francona said. The way you win (playoff series) is you have different guys doing it on a daily basis. For the Yankees, this was a strength much of the year (3.34 ERA, third best in baseball), and Tuesday night was no exception.
