The American League Championship Series is basically going how many of us predicted before it began but somehow feels worse. The theory was the Yankees need to beat everyone not named Justin Verlander or Gerrit Cole and they'd be fine. Now obviously you'd most likely need to beat one of them but if that's game 7 on short rest so be it. So here we are trailing 2 - 1 after losing to Cole and Verlander and everyone is blaming the Yankees' pitching. If you want to blame someone that's fine but pitching isn't the issue!
Sean Pendergast is the morning host on Sports Radio 610 in Houston. Sean was nice enough to come on the show with Levack and Goz so of course Levack was completely respectful and not a total Yankee homer. That's a lie, I totally tried to convince him the Astros would lose.
The Final Four of the MLB is set. The NLCS is the St Louis Cardinals vs the Washington Nationals and the ALCS is the Houston Astros vs the New York Yankees. Now that the teams are set who does Las Vegas think will win it all? The short answer is the Houston Astros and it isn't close.
The New York Yankees have swept the Minnesota Twins and now wait to see who wins game five of the other ALDS series. The Houston Astros will host the Tampa Bay Rays in a winner take all game five with the Yankees waiting in the wings. ESPN MLB Insider Buster Olney Joins us to lay out why he believes this postseason couldn't have gone any better to this point for the Yankees.
The New York Yankees have swept the Minnesota Twins and punched their tickets to the American League Championship Series. The Twins smashed the single season Team Home Run record this year and won 101 games this season. None of that was enough to stop the Yankees.
Every week ESPN MLB Insider Buster Olney joins us thanks to our great friends at Tech East Fire and Water Restoration. This week there is plenty of controversy to go around in the world of Major League Baseball. Buster ways in on all of it.
The 2018 American League Championship Series is a joke! If Major League Baseball had any morals at all they would disqualify both the Boston Red Sox and the Houston Astros and start the series over with the New York Yankees and The Cleveland Indians because there's proof that both the Red Sox and the Astros are cheaters.
The New York Yankees are one game away from the World Series and they've been drawing comparisons to the great 1996 Yankees team that began the last great Yankees' dynasty. Does Buster think this is a fair comparison between the "Baby Bombers" and the "Core Four"?
