Yankees add Jordan Montgomery, Jaime Garcia to roster for ALDS vs. Indians

Girardi said he did not think Green, Robertson or Kahnle would be available to pitch Thursday night but thought they could go in Game 2 on Friday night.

October 19, Washington, N.L.C.S., Game 5 - The Nationals clinch the first World Series berth in franchise history, eliminating the Dodgers. The two wild card spots belong to the New York Yankees and the Minnesota Twins.

Tonight's Yankees vs Indians ALDS game is expected to start at 7:38pm ET but the battle has already begun on twitter, and the Yanks are in the lead. And the character the Yankees showed to pull out the victory - turning the page on a awful start, immediately responding to get back in the game and doing the unconventional - may make NY the team no one wants to face.

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. Joe Girardi said Wednesday that Tanaka will pitch Game 3 when the series moves to the Bronx.

For a number of people, it was pretty hard to make out that Petty was born and brought up in Gainesville , Florida. The band became Mudcrutch , which soon transitioned in Los Angeles into Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers .

However, Kluber will not start Game 1 for the Indians. In his career, Bauer is 3-4 with a 4.28 ERA and 36 strikeouts against the Yankees. That could end up being in Arizona's wheelhouse since power threats such as 1B Paul Goldschmidt, 3B Mike Lamb and RF J.D. Martinez make them one of baseball's best teams at hitting against high velocity.

The matchup that matters most: Verlander had some command issues with his fastball the first half of the season, but he has cut his walk rate from more than 10 percent to 4.3 percent in the past two months. I predict the Cleveland Indians to defeat the Washington Nationals in the World Series. "We'll see how it goes from there". It would also nearly immediately begin all sorts of "a new dynasty?" talk, considering all the young players on the Yankees (and all the ones who are coming). The series price varies depending on which sportsbook you look at, but the average price is set at Cleveland -185, with the comeback on NY at +145. They were there a year ago, made some changes and I'm just a Cubs fan, I guess. That helped the Yankees win 8-4 and advance to the ALDS where they'll face the Cleveland Indians. Now, he is back in the postseason for the first time in 2014.

With a rotation featuring Carlos Carrasco, Trevor Bauer and likely Cy Young victor Corey Kluber, the Indians don't have to be. They are using that experience to know what to expect this year when pressure mounts as they go deeper and deeper into the playoffs. Francona has another option against lefties in Tyler Olson, who did not allow a run in 20 innings over 30 appearances. I don't see the Rockies doing much damage because of the inexperience in their starting rotation. Game 2 will take place tomorrow night, airing on MLB TV, at 5:08pm ET. 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.
