MLB The Show 17: NY at Cleveland ALDS Game 1 simulation

06 October 2017, 06:31 | Santos West

Nate Silver's World Series projection is out and the Cleveland Indians are heavy favorites

Indians manager Terry Francona waves to fans as his team leaves the field Sunday after beating the White Sox 3-1 in the regular season finale. The Indians open the AL Division Series on Thursday at 7:38 p.m. at Progressive Field

Players change teams so often these days that you're always bound to run into some ex-Yankees each series, but this is more than usual. That is the biggest issue right now heading into the postseason and I think I would take the Tribe in a 7 game series over the Astros contrary to my pre-season pick where Houston I had winning.

It's the matchup of the two teams involved in the Bartolo Colon trade, 15 years later! This year was, uh, a little different. The Diamondbacks have to first get by the Colorado Rockies (+2800). The Yankees' Luis Severino retired just one batter. "So it's all about the next game, and the next game for us is tomorrow".

The Nationals' two-headed pitching monster of Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg could trouble the Cubs hitters as long as the former shows no ill effects from a tweaked hamstring he suffered last Saturday. Ervin Santana and Zack Greinke are veterans.

"It gives you the home field, but no, it doesn't", Pluto said. It wouldn't have been possible without the wild-card round. Game 1 of the World Series is scheduled for October 24. Judge singled in the first ahead of Didi Gregorious' homer and hit a two-run blast in the fourth to extend the Yankees' lead to 7-4, showing more emotion than usual as he rounded the bases.

Gray's 8.4% walk rate ranks him 14 among qualified starting pitchers this season, while the Indians' 9.7% rate as a team puts them in a tie with their ALDS opponents for 3. We got Paul Goldschmidt and Nolan Arenado hitting their first postseason home runs.

Catalan leader calls for global mediation
He said Germany wasn't seeking to mediate in the dispute between Madrid and the regional government in Barcelona . Spain's king has said the leaders of Catalonia have broken the law and shown an inadmissible lack of loyalty.

The Chicago Cubs are looking to become the first team to repeat as World Series champion in nearly two decades, but the odds aren't in their favor, according to several publications and websites.

Mauer and Sabathia might have an extensive history replete with a lot of battles, but neither even remotely resembles the player they were when they squared off in Joe's Major League Baseball debut in 2004. And the character the Yankees showed to pull out the victory - turning the page on a terrible start, immediately responding to get back in the game and doing the unconventional - may make NY the team no one wants to face.

Aroldis Chapman and Dellin Betances get a lot of the attention thanks to their overpowering stuff, but the Yankees' bullpen is good all over.

On Aug. 30 Bauer gave up one run in six innings. If the Red Sox win the World Series, their fans will be ecstatic and all that disappointment will go away, of course, but the Boston sports world may then get consumed by a Tom Brady-related drama in a couple of months. The Sox are notorious for working the starting pitchers and forcing the pitch counts to rise quickly and get into the bullpen. Any day he's on the mound typically means three to four innings of work for the bullpen. The Melodrama of it coming down to a one run game seven after being down 3-1 in the series only heightened the lasting memory of all of last season up till the final pitch being about Chi Town and nothing else. He said after the game he was exhausted taking the mound following his sprint and, in hindsight, probably should have stopped at second base. Are you really going to second-guess Francona for holding Corey Kluber back to Game 2, given his track record (no matter how puzzling it seems)? The team that will take NY out of this postseason? With the two teams, he went 10-12 with a 3.55 ERA in 27 starts during the regular season. They were on the roster most of the season. Huh. "This year, we're going to try to make sure we win the last game". And they insist they won't be quite so unnerved Thursday night when they step onto the field at Minute Maid Park.
