What to expect from Yankees-Astros ALCS

Game one is Friday night at 8:08PM EST.

The median listing price as of midday Thursday was $362 for Game 1 and $363 for Game 2. The lefty shut them down two years ago in the wild-card game in The Bronx. Also, a seven-game series is slightly different than a five-game series. Only 13 other teams have participated in the World Series in the last 10 years.

NY rallied from a 2-0 series deficit to stun Cleveland in five games in the ALDS, taking Game 5 by a count of 5-2 on the road Wednesday. Keucheul is 6-3 with a 2.26 ERA in 71 2/3 home innings this season. However, as it seemed like the Cubs would come away with game two as they had a 3-1 lead in the bottom of the eighth, Washington unraveled the faults in their bullpen as outfielder Bryce Harper crushed a towering two-run homer to tie the game, followed by first basemen Ryan Zimmerman hitting a go-ahead, three-run blast later to make it 6-3 Nationals, which would be the final score. We know who runs "Club Astros". "Going all the way, Houston will not have liftoff". After Boston won four straight elimination games, they didn't lose again en route to the World Series title.

The Yankees managed to erase a 2-0 series deficit and advance to the ALCS, which is great news for Yankees fans and even better news for Aaron Judge, who has a lot less attention on him today than he would if the Yankees had fallen last night. If Sanchez gets untracked, he adds scary depth to the Yankees lineup from the cleanup spot, particularly if players like Aaron Hicks and Todd Frazier can continue producing at the bottom of the Yankees lineup. They have the American League MVP in second baseman Jose Altuve and get to play the first two games, and if there is a seventh game, in Houston. Houston also gets production from Yulieski Gurriel, George Springer and Carlos Correa, who has pummeled the Yankees.

October 12, 2017: Equifax confirms it was hacked again, this time with a fake Flash installer application. Equifax says it took the page down "out of an abundance of caution" as it investigates.

Rotation: Dallas Keuchel remains the ace of Houston's staff, even with the addition of Justin Verlander. Still, New York scored 51 runs to the Astros' 43. Being able to use David Robertson, Tommy Kahnle, and Aroldis Chapman across multiple innings kept the Yankees in their ALDS matchup.

The Astros had the AL's best offense in the regular season. But the best remaining bullpen in the AL shapes up well.

That result, with the Yankees winning 5-2 in Game 5 as plus-170 road underdogs, cashed my plus-145 series bet and salvaged what had started as a disastrous baseball playoffs for yours truly.
