The 2011 Show: Yanks Face Detroit in Game 1 ALDS

Pitching Duel Set:  Sabathia vs. Verlander

(New York, NY) – So the question for the Yanks (97-65) is can they turn it on now?  After posting the AL best record and 97 wins, their last 4 games were anything but special, losing them all including a 7-0 lead to allow Tampa to take the AL Wild card and bounce Boston out.  The opening match is a classic with the likely AL Cy Young winner for Detroit taking on the likely runner up in CC Sabathia.  A-Rod has been only 99 games all year so his impact in the playoffs remains a question mark but Cano and Jeter have played well down the stretch and Granderson won the AL RBI title while finishing second in home runs with 41.  Weather could also be a factor in Game 1 and Game 2 with rain a possibility for both matches.  Ivan Nova gets the Game 2 start followed by Freddy Garcia in Game 3.  In the other ALDS series the Texas Rangers will face the Tampa Rays.
