And it Begins...
Tonight will be the first game of the American League Division Series where one Constantino Chamberlain Sabathia will take on Justin Verlander. The major league season ended yesterday, but the Yankees season ended a week ago when they clinched the division. After this, Yankees fans had to witness something they were largely unfamiliar with: meaningless September baseball. The Yankees fielded more minor leaguers in the last week than the Pirates did all year. But now, the Yankees have to turn everything up a notch and come prepared to face the Tigers. Ladies and Gentlemen, the quest for number 28 is afoot.

Let's wrap this up before Verlander gets a second start, please.
If the Yankees win this game, even if Verlander does NOT end up as the losing pitcher, it will be a blow from which the Tigers will not recover, and Verlander won't pitch again until March at Joker Marchant Stadium in Lakeland.
But the bats can't disappear like they did in the 2006 ALCS against the Tigers. We must hit like they vote in Chicago: Early and often.
Agreed. Lets take tonight, because I do not want to have to face Verlander again. At least not again on full rest. Yankees in 4.
"We must hit like they vote in Chicago: Early and often."
So true . . .
