Sonny Gray, CC Sabathia will start first two games of ALDS

At most sports books, the Cubs entered this season as a 4.5-1 co-favorite to repeat as World Series champs.

Me, I'm a Boston Red Sox fan and I haven't been shy about that. Will the Indians snap their 68-year streak without a title, the current longest active streak?

The Yankees overcame a 3-0 deficit in the first inning of Thursday night's AL wild-card game and won their first postseason game in five years to earn a best-of-five matchup against the defending AL champion Indians - the team with the best record in the AL. Jose Ramirez and Francisco Lindor led an offense that ranked in the top 10 in the Major League Baseball in most hitting stats (second in On Base Percentage and Slugging). Cleveland will counter with Trevor Bauer and Corey Kluber in games 1 and 2, with Carlos Carrasco getting the nod in Game 3. "That's pretty impressive. You tip your cap to them". The play: Rockies plus 155 or better. The Indians have the highest chance, now checking in at 19.5 percent going into the American League Division Series.

With the New York Yankees defeating the Minnesota Twins, this year's divisional round is shaping up to be one of the most loaded in terms of win totals in recent history.

The Yankees will begin the pursuit of their record 28th World Series title.

"Once in a while, when a team has a sensational regular season, they have this sense like, 'We can't blip it now". During the season the Yankees were 2-5 against the Indians. They did not announce the rotation beyond that.

These teams produced some drama together when they were both in the NL West.

No one thought the "Baby Bombers" would be this good this soon.

R: ROOKIES — Yankees behemoth Aaron Judge broke the major league record with 52 home runs by a rookie, Dodgers surprise Cody Bellinger set the NL mark with 39. Tanaka has had an up-and-down season, while Sabathia had his best season in years but still feels as though he could regress at any moment. The Yankees being back in the postseason is great for baseball and its fans, as it will get people watching. Electric closer Aroldis Chapman pitched a scoreless ninth inning for the save.

"The team that wins the first game in a five-game series wins something like 75 percent of the time for the whole series", Pluto said. After losing 20 of 25 games, the Dodgers finished strong, ending the season with six wins in their final seven games. "That situation worked out for us, but if they happen to put a big rally up right there I think it changes the whole momentum". Alex Wood has been a breakout star in the rotation while Cody Bellinger has lit up opposing pitchers nearly as well as Aaron Judge. In the World Series, Wild Card teams are 6-6.
