Yep 1960 the superior team lost
And I think Casey Stengal refused to start Whitey Ford in the opener
As another anecdote, i was born in 1949 and from
1949-1953 i believe the Yankees were World Champs those 5 straight years. Ive always felt that solidified my “ yankeeness” lol

My kids of course are Yankee fans - my recent 23 year old college grad son was at the game last night - i was hoping it would be a W - to make the 3 hour drive from
Sag Harbor to the Bronx worthwhile -
And it was!
I’d like to see the Redmen back on top again - follow the lead of the Bombers.
Memories!

Your joking right? Good pitching always trumps good hitting in the playoffs. Bullpen won't matter because the Houston starters go so deep. The Astros will be going to the world series again if they continue this pitching. Look at their run differential.


Really? Tell that to the Braves teams that had three hall of Famers on it (Maddox, Smoltz and Glavine) and yet managed to win one World Series. Or the 2014 Tiger Team that had Velander, Scherzer and Price (and a more than decent Porcello) and got swept by the Orioles in the ALDS. To bring one closer to home, the 2015 Mets with Harvey, Syndergard and deGrom were stronger than the Royals starters but still loss in five.

Could the Yanks use more starting pitching, yes. Does the team with the best starters on paper always win in a playoff series, no.


I didn't think I had to mention Houston has one of the best offensive lineups in baseball. Thought that was a given.

bravo sevy, the sticks, the bull pen

looks like at the 1/3 mark that neither the yanks nor bosox will fade.
boone needs in sept to setup the pitching rotation for sevy to pitch the first post season game.

i'll go to battle with sevy & the yanks pen any day.

bravo 4 wins in a row.
the boilerplate boone play book for the last 2 games and season..
have starters (gray, tanaka) pitch 5 or 6 innings.
bring in the pen. one inning per pitcher.
have the sticks hit for double digit hits & add homers.
have sterling say ' thhhhhhhhhhhhhe yankees win.

Yanks score a lot of runs also and your post was related Houston’s starting pitching (“Good pitching always trumps good pitching in the playoffs.”).

All of the teams you mentioned didn't have tremendous lineups 1-9. Obviously you need to score runs to win. I Don't think the Yankees will be a tremendous offensive force in the playoffs because of the reliance of the HR. They scored 3 runs in 4 games last year at Minute Maid in the LCS. The Tremendous pitching in the playoffs is what fueled the run. I'm worried about the mediocre pitching and just how much they rely on power this season. That won't equate to winning October baseball. Just my 2 cents.
