Houston announced earlier in the week that left-hander Dallas Keuchel was its Game 1 starter. So it will be interesting to see them pitted against each other.
The Astros are going with 12 pitchers and 13 position players for the best-of-seven series that starts Friday at Minute Maid Park.
After a fast start that signaled a young team arriving ahead of schedule, the Yankees rebuilt their bullpen at the trade deadline with the additions of strikeout kings David Robertson and Tommy Kahnle - adding them to a stable that included Chapman, Dellin Betances and Chad Green to form arguably the deepest late-inning corps in the game. Right-hander Justin Verlander will start Game 2. Look for experienced leadoff man Brett Gardner to set the tone in multiple games by putting together tough at-bats against the Houston pitching staff. Here, Jeff says, the matchup favors the Astros. "I love being able to represent them and I try and play, I play hard everyday all the people that have helped me in New Mexico to get to this point", said Houston third baseman Alex Bregman. They're aggressive on the base paths so you have to control that.
Verlander may be the one who gets them there. It's not a stretch to imagine this series being decided by what happens when the Yankees' powerful bullpen goes to work against the most relentless offense in the game.
The Yankees will need that resolve again with the Astros perhaps even a tougher opponent than the Indians.
Hinch told reporters that the Astros has a huge advantage with both Keuchel and Verlander going back to back to open the series. We're about to find out.
