After the Drama of Game 162, What Will the Playoffs Bring? [Opening Playoff Night Live Thread]
The second game of the night, scheduled to start at 8:37, will be the Tigers and Yankees from Yankee Stadium. The pitching matchup here doesn't need any hype, just the two names involved: Verlander and Sabathia. The assumption is the Tigers will need Verlander to win twice to give Detroit a chance. I don't necessarily buy that given that's it a short series and anything can happen. However, going up 1-0 on the road and getting New York's shaky rest of the rotation the next three game would be.
Q it up here tonight as we kick off the 2011 playoffs, which we can only hope have half the drama of Game 162.
