    And, here’s the Yankees games against the Tigers this season:

    So, the Yankees pitchers have had little issue with the Twins and Tigers batters this season.

    Can we expect the same if New York faces one of these teams in the ALDS this October? And, if the Yankees pitchers fail in the ALDS how would you feel about that result – seeing how they handled these teams during the regular season?

      Yes, we can expect total dominance in the post-season in the ALDS. The regular season is always a valid marker of post-season success.

      Who are you kidding? Did it matter when the Angels took 8 out of 9 from the Red Sox in the regular season last year. Did it matter when the Yanks swept the Indians two years ago, and took 6 of 7 from the Tigers the year before that?
      Did it matter when the Dodgers dropped 10 of 11 to the Mets in 1988?

      We’re Doomed!!! Doomed, I tells ya!! DOOOOOOOOOMEEEED!!!!

      Oh, and if the Yanks lost the ALDS, I’d feel…

      …sad.
