So as Game 1 approaches, how is your confidence in the Yankees?
Take the poll over to the right. Two choices: they win or they lose.
As for what I think, the team seems much better prepared for the playoffs this season than last season. No unexpected changes, no misfit first baseman, no A-Rod hitting sixth. They’ve won 73 of their last 112 and they’re not going to try to be anything but that team.
Sabathia is literally a tall order in Game 1. If he gets knocked around, the Yankees could sweep. My call in the paper sticks, Yankees in four games.
