    The Yankees have a lot of history with the ALDS. Here’s a summary of their experience, in terms of after two games and the final series result:

    As you can see, many times the Yankees have been tied after two games of an ALDS – with mixed final results.

    Taking it a step further, before 2006, how many times have the Yankees won the first game of an ALDS and then lost the second game? The answer: 1997, 2002 and 2005.

    The Yankees lost the ALDS in 1997, 2002, and 2005. That’s not a good trend, when looking at 2006.

      On the plus side, these trends are meaningless since each season is a separate animal. On the minus side, the Yanks are closer to the 2002 and 2005 versions than the 1997 version in that they simply don’t pitch well and have a lineup of ARods, Sheffs, and Giambis who walk, hit homers, and strike out, all with tremendous regularity. And when they’re not doing the first or second, they’re only doing the third. This lineup is being put to bed early, just like last year, 2002, and 2005.
