Cubs Face Long Odds of Repeating as World Series Champions

Cubs Face Long Odds of Repeating as World Series Champions

The New York Yankees announced that Sonny Gray will start Game 1 of the American League Division Series against the Cleveland Indians at 7:38 p.m. Thursday at Progressive Field.

The New York Yankees survived a awful 0.1 innings performance out of their ace Luis Severino in the American League Wild Card Game. The New York Yankees will now head to Cleveland to face the Cleveland Indians in the American League Division Series, in what is sure to be an outstanding series that will light up the postseason. If the Red Sox have any hopes of winning this series, they have to win Game 1 this afternoon in Houston. Luis Severino posted a sub-3.00 ERA in his first full season in the majors. The Indians will win Game 1 of the World Series because of Kluber out-pitching Lester. The Yankees got just one out from their starter on Tuesday and came back from that to win because of an astonishing performance from the bullpen and the top of that Yankee lineup is as good as any in baseball with Brett Gardner, Didi Gregorius, Gary Sanchez and of course Aaron Judge. "They've really been on a roll the last 50, 60 games, playing as well as anyone". Though the season comes to an end for the for the Twins, they have much to look forward to in the future. "You know I'm a Yankees fan and will stick with them". If Kluber gets the win, the series would be tied 1-1 heading back to NY where either Luis Severino or Masahiro Tanaka would have a chance to give the Yankees a 2-1 lead at home.

With Sunday's brutal loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, the Cleveland Browns fell to 1-19 in Hue Jackson's head coaching tenure, 2-29 in their last 31 franchise games and 4-37 dating back to Week 13 of the 2014 season. "We've been so good for six months, '" Pluto said.

The Indians, who were beaten by the Cubs in last year's World Series, are favored to celebrate their first championship since 1948. They are really well balanced.

So how do you pick a victor of this series when they both can hit and pitch well?

Gray came over to the Yankees - who trumped the Minnesota Twins in the Major League Baseball wildcard clash - at the trade deadline in a deal with the Oakland Athletics for multiple prospects. The Indians boast Andrew Miller (1.44 ERA, 0.83 WHIP, 27 holds), Cody Allen (2.94 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, 30 saves) and Bryan Shaw (3.52 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, 26 holds) out of their bullpen.

The Cubs won't go down easily because they'll be looking to repeat, which is why they acquired Jose Quintana (11-11, 4.15 ERA) to propel their chances.

The Minnesota Twins jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the top of the first and had two runners in scoring position when Yankees manager Joe Girardi decided to make a change.
