    Assuming the Yankees have a chance to set up their rotation for the Wildcard game – and they should! – who would be their choice for starting pitcher? Severino? Tanaka? Sabathia? Gray? Do you go with the season stats (Severino)? Or, do you with experience (Tanaka)? Or, do you want a lefty (Sabathia)? Or, what if Gray is great over his last few starts? Do you go with the hot hand? At the least, it’s nice to have choices.

      I think they should go with Severino…He has never once faced the Twins in his career and that’s usually advantage to the pitcher. My 2nd choice would be Gray as I think he’s been the 2nd best since he’s joined the Yanks and he has playoff experience. You know the bullpen will be ready to go at the first sign of trouble…you know Joe will have a quick hook and go to the pen. Lets just hope he doesn’t use Betances in a close game!!!

      Severino has about a 1 in 5 chance of blowing up and a 4 in 5 chance of shutting the Twins down. I’d go with him. But if he runs into one of those rallies he can’t get out of, take him out and try to hold the game using the bullpen.
