New York Yankees Advance To ALDS

Cleveland Indians Michael Brantley walks into the batting cage during a team workout Wednesday Oct. 4 2017 in Cleveland. The Indians are scheduled to play the New York Yankees in Game 1 of an ALDS on Thursday

The Indians feel they have unfinished business after losing the seventh game to the Cubs a year ago, and they appear to be as prepared as they have ever been to win the franchise's first World Series since 1948.

At most sports books, the Cubs entered this season as a 4.5-1 co-favorite to repeat as World Series champs. Even the Red Sox and the Astros will have an LCS vibe to it, though that's just by virtue of two divisional winners playing. Will the Indians snap their 68-year streak without a title, the current longest active streak? But the Cleveland Indians, believe it or not, are the popular pick to go all the way this season, thanks to their historically good pitching staff. The New York Yankees will now head to Cleveland to face the Cleveland Indians in the American League Division Series, in what is sure to be an outstanding series that will light up the postseason. Here's a list of them all - and what would make each of them noteworthy. We knew it was going to be. The Indians have the highest chance, now checking in at 19.5 percent going into the American League Division Series. He reveled in last year's rallying cry: "Try Not to Suck". The do-everything second baseman won his third AL batting title and aims to lead the Astros to their first World Series crown. They are really well balanced.

Cleveland may be the most complete team in baseball, with a potent lineup, devastating starting pitching, and a bullpen that houses the one and only Andrew Miller.

After a total of 4,860 Major League Baseball (MLB) regular season games, meaningful October baseball has finally arrived.

"They've got a lot of guys who hit for power".

No one thought the "Baby Bombers" would be this good this soon. Aaron Judge (he of 52 home runs) hit a home run, Didi Gregorius did too, as well as Brett Gardner.

Minnesota, coming off a 100-loss season in 2016, will send Ervin Santana (16-8, 3.28 ERA) to the mound. Electric closer Aroldis Chapman pitched a scoreless ninth inning for the save. They're poised to win now and win later, and they look to get that started off against the Indians after beating the Twins Tuesday night. "Plus, they won 22 games straight this season".

Same goes for Game 2 on Friday.

"If you look at some of the outings against them, (Gray) fared as well as any pitcher that we have", Girardi said. Alex Wood has been a breakout star in the rotation while Cody Bellinger has lit up opposing pitchers nearly as well as Aaron Judge. It's been a while since a World Series rematch, when Reggie Jackson led the Yanks over the Dodgers in 1977-78.

"I just want our guys to go out and do what they've been doing since the All-Star break".
