Yankees are healthy and have the deepest power line up in the history of baseball. They're winning this game.
i really hope bomel doesn't mess around with that opener BS
i'm assuming fiers will get the start but i wouldn't mind jackson to be honest. either way, this should be a good one
Please don’t hate me for this, A’s fans, but I have to see it to believe it with regards to Oakland and their history in winner take all games.
Going with Yankees
Pretty much this...plus for all the yammering about who's going to start for the Yankees all their options are better than any of the A's options, and their bullpen is better and more proven than the A's pen.
Better at what? A's bullpen has the 2nd best era next to Houston.
History is irrelevant here. None of these players were a part of the A's or Yankees past.
anything on who the yankees might start?
i'd guess tanaka but if i'm boone i'd really consider starting happ considering how he's pitched since he got to NY
I’m going to go with Oakland.
Should be Severino.
Happ's fly ball rate is high. That's dangerous against this A's lineup.
This game comes down to who can blast the other team's starting pitcher into the stratosphere first. Oakland (4th in the majors) and the Yankees pen (3rd in the majors) finished right in the same spot. I expect the first 4 innings to decide this game.
Oakland's starting pitching is less than ideal in a situation like this. Stats aside i wouldn't trust any of those 5 starters in a big game situation. At the same time, outside of Severino, the Yankees rotation isn't exactly hot stuff either.
I'll go with the A's. They're due goddammit.
Fyi, 5:05 start time in the best state in the country...
I'm still trying to figure out how Oakland won nearly 100 games this year.
Yankees in a close one.
Yankees, likely in a romp.
They scored a lot more than they gave up.
with their entire opening rotation on the DL its really hard to believe
but then you look at the offense and see guys like davis, chapman, olson, lowrie, and piscotty who all hit 20+ homers. not to mention their bullpen is one of the best in baseball
As good as the A’s have been this year, it’s hard for me to ignore their playoff baggage of recent years
lowrie is the only guy on the A's who was on any of their playoff teams earlier in the decade
if the A's lose it'll be because of their starting pitching. not because of their past playoff performances
Let's go boys!
Going with the boys from Oakland, California
Lucky for them the Yankees don't have Verlander.
He was literally the only reason Detroit won either series in 12 and 13.
and in 14 they ran into a red hot royals team that just could not be stopped
