New York Yankees Use LeBron James To Troll Cleveland Indians On Twitter

When the Indians get baserunners, they should be aggressive on the base paths and keep Sanchez on his toes and take advantage of his potential miscues. More and more each year, that's becoming the case.

If you weren't a baseball fan and you just tuned in because you wanted to watch sports, you can away entertained. Did you see Arizona coming? We've done it this year and we'd like to do the same. Anything can happen to the Dodgers, but they're still the favorites to win the series, especially with Clayton Kershaw, Rich Hill and Yu Darvish starting in the first three games.

Right fielder Jay Bruce is in his 10th season in the majors. Lefty Justin Wilson, traded by the Tigers, has been bad since joining the team in August and the Cubs don't have many hard throwers in the back end of the bullpen. That left us with three teams with 100 or more wins for the first time in a while and there's also more than one other risky team with less a few wins but still a packed roster, The Nationals, The Diamondbacks, and of course those Cubs. He is itching to play deep into October and early November if that's what it takes.

"There's nothing I can say that's going to be stirring, motivational, substantive in a sense that it's going to change their minds about anything", said Cubs manager Joe Maddon. In my opinion, Girardi should receive a handful of AL Manager of the Year votes, but we'll save that for another time.

"These guys here all have experience".

You could make the argument that he should back the Indians considering that it is his hometown and he plays for the cities basketball team. But I think we have to stay consistent with our approach, the way we approached everything all season long.

Unlike past year, the Indians have postseason experience on their side. "You know what you're getting yourself into and understanding that the postseason is a long time, a long journey".

Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Trevor Bauer (47) throws a pitch during the first inning against the Chicago White Sox at Progressive Field. Over those three starts, he gave up a total of 11 runs with a record of 1-2. As for Betnaces, the four-time All-Star is unhittable when he's going well, and was very good in four of his last six regular-season outings. But this year is completely different. "The media attention, the buzz around the city, people recognizing you - just the comfortability of having been through it before makes you better prepared for it this time".

Now, much of the pressure has shifted to the Indians, the defending AL champs and favorites to advance again to the World Series.

Despite winning only one World Series in the last 17 years, it's always weird to think about the New York Yankees as underdogs, perhaps even massive ones, as they head into a playoff series. Then the Yankees' offense got to work on dismantling Minnesota ace Ervin Santana through a 44-pitch bottom of the first. The Rockies hadn't made the playoffs since 2009 and posted their most wins since that season.
