Fast facts ahead of Yankees ALCS Game Four

Photo by Elsa/ Here’s what we know so far. Game Three did not go according to plan for the Yankees. Luis Severino labored through his start; the bullpen coughed up insurance runs for the Astros in the seventh inning; and the offense pushed Gerrit Cole to the ropes but never delivered the big blow. It makes sense to get the bad taste out of our mouths by looking ahead to Game Four. Weather permitting, that matchup is scheduled to take place tomorrow night. Aaron Boone indicated that he plans to use a bullpen game for the matchup. If it gets rained out, Masahiro Tanaka will take the...

Luis Severino fought hard, but could only go 4.1 innings against the Astros

On the third pitch of the game, Jose Altuve pulled Luis Severino’s hanging slider 420 feet to left-center field. The solo shot foreshadowed the Yankee ace’s uphill battle against the Astros bats throughout the rest of his Game 3 start. Severino was himself, yanked out of the game after 4.1 innings...

NYY vs. HOU: Luis Severino vs. Gerrit Cole

Photo by Elsa/ The Yankees look to retake the lead against the Astros as the series shifts to New York. Like in the 2017 ALCS, the Yankees will host the middle three games in this year’s series. Two years ago, the Yankees swept the set, taking a lead when the series went back to Houston. This time around, if the Yankees pull off that feat again, they would win the series. Of course, it won’t be that easy, but the next three days are crucial. The Yankees have been excellent at home, and have a chance to get an edge in this series, starting tonight with Game Three. To try and grab the...

Yankees held onto Luis Severino for this moment

This is the role the Yankees envisioned for Luis Severino back in February. They gave him a contract extension imagining the 25-year-old being the ace of this staff. They projected that it would be Severino they would give the ball to in a critical Game 3 of the American League Championship Series,...

The Yankees will need a big contribution from Luis Severino

Thomas B. Shea-USA TODAY Sports Severino did enough to get past the Twins, but the young ace could decide the series with a strong start at home Luis Severino started the deciding game of the Yankees sweep in the ALDS, tossing four innings of shutout ball before handing it over to a series of relievers to close the game out. Severino got into a couple of jams, including a bases-loaded, no outs situation in the second inning; those situations could have shifted momentum heavily if he hadn’t gotten out unharmed. He was the definition of “bend but don’t break,” missing with location...

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports Tanaka gets the ball to start the ALCS; How the Yanks should handle Aaron Hicks; this year’s Yankees are much better than 2017. New York Post | Ken Davidoff: The ALCS kicks off tonight, and the starting rotation is set. Masahiro Tanaka, noted clutch playoff performer, gets the ball in Game One, followed by James Paxton and Luis Severino. Tanaka expressed confidence based on his excellent performance against Houston two years ago in the 2017 ALCS. Throwing Tanaka first also would allow him to start at Yankee Stadium in a potential Game Five instead of...

What the Yankees can expect from Luis Severino in the ALCS

Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports The right-hander had his ups and downs against the Twins, but ended up throwing four scoreless anyway. The Yankees will enter the ALCS with three certainties in the rotation: James Paxton, Masahiro Tanaka, and Luis Severino. The latter pitched in Game Three against the Minnesota Twins and held them in check for four innings. Let’s breakdown that performance. Severino’s slider was inconsistent in his outing against the Twins. At times, it didn’t have his accustomed bite, and he left a couple of them in the heart of the zone, a situation that the Twins...

A few factors that determined the Yankees’ playoff rotation order

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports What factors played into the Yankees decision to start Paxton, Tanaka, and Severino in that order? The Yankees are in a somewhat unique situation where they could arrange their three postseason starters in any order and it wouldn’t come as a major surprise. I think it’s fair to say most expect James Paxton to be the team’s top starter throughout their playoff run, but a decision to start Luis Severino or Masahiro Tanaka in Game One of a series wouldn’t be an earth-shattering development. The days of having a rotation order set in stone are over and...
