Yankees vs. Indians Odds: MLB Playoffs Series Odds, Prediction

WTAM/1100 and WMMS/FM 100.7 will carry the game on the radio.

If New York Yankees starters such as Sonny Gray, Masahiro Tanaka and CC Sabathia can give their club just four or five quality innings in the American League Division Series, Joe Girardi will not be fearful to turn the game over to his dominant bullpen who can also give the club some length and eat up innings.

Cleveland used a torrid second half of the season, which included an AL-record 22 consecutive victories between August and September, to finish two wins short of the National League's Los Angeles Dodgers for the best record in the majors.

The absence of Frazier and Wade leaves the Yankees with just four outfielders for the ALDS - Brett Gardner, Jacoby Ellsbury, Aaron Judge and Aaron Hicks.

In this ALDS, Indians manager Terry Francona is carrying 11 pitchers, seven infielders, five outfielders and two catchers on the 25-man roster.

Previous year the Cubs were considered the betting favorites to win the title after finishing with the best record in baseball, and that's exactly what they did as they won their first championship since 1908. All of the history regarding their stunningly long Championship draught added to a singularly dominant regular season put the focus on their not just potential, but suddenly highly anticipated, post season success. Carlos Santana hit.208 with two long balls.

The Indians are back, but there's now a 6-foot-7, 280-pound baseball-bashing behemoth standing in their way. Yankees scored 858 runs, an increase of 178 from past year and second in the majors behind Houston (896). The Indians were fifth with 818 runs.

"From the moment I stepped foot in the clubhouse, it was something that I was hoping to do, " Gray said of starting a Yankees playoff series. NY went 51-30 at home, best in the AL, while the Indians were 49-32 at home and 53-28 on road. Inside the friendly confines of Yankee Stadium, he was 9-3 with a 3.22 ERA - hence Girardi holding him back for Game 3 in the Bronx.

Bauer earned two wins each over the Yankees and Boston Red Sox, the top two teams in the AL East Division, as well as one against the Kansas City Royals. "What's going to matter is who plays the best". But if they want me to start, I'll be ready for that, too. "I'm excited to take them on ... and I think we're more than capable of getting the job done". We've done it this year and we'd like to do the same. The 6-foot-8 righty walked seven over his final 9 2/3 innings and finished with 44 walks, up from 28 past year.

To find a team that lost the World Series back-to-back and then finally came up a victor, you have to go back nearly 100 years.

Have a look at LeBron shouting out his Cleveland Indians brothers all the way through the World Series previous year. That, perhaps, explains why the Indians started slowly this season; they were saving their best for last. Although the Sox have the experience and know how to get the job done I don't trust the starting pitching in bean town and know the Astros have what it takes in that area. That's where the winning streak came from.
