That’s why you pay Gerrit Cole $10,000 per pitch, what a performance from the ace on Tuesday night. Seeing the Yankees secure their first postseason win at home in 1,089 days was fun, but the job isn’t finished. Game 2 brings a much tougher test for the Yankees. While Shane Bieber isn’t lighting the world on fire like he did during the Covid season, the guy still has a sub-3 ERA over 200 innings. His stuff isn’t piss my pants nasty like Gerrit Cole’s, but it breaks and the Rays certainly learned that in the Wild Card series, he allowed just one run and three hits across 7.2 innings. Going against Bieber would be disheartening, if nasty Nestor Cortes WASN’T on the mound. The hefty-lefty shook off a brief July slump to deal like he was Pablo Escobar down the stretch, allowing a measly .131/.195/.206 slash line to opponents over the season’s final two months. He hasn’t yielded more than three runs in a start since early July. Cortes also knows Cleveland well. posting a 2.19 ERA in two starts vs. the Guardians.
The lineup will look a little different than it did at other points in the year due to a nagging toe injury that’s been bothering DJ LeMahieu, but there are plenty of last names in it that the bleacher creatures have chant semi-blackout drunk over the years. Anthony Rizzo, Gleyber Torres (who had a strong September after an ugly back half of the Summer), and Giancarlo Stanton make up the heart of the order behind some guy you’ve probably never heard of named Aaron Judge. With Andrew Benintendi (broken right hand) not expected to be ready to play until the American League Championship Series, Oswaldo Cabrera gets the nod at left field. Cabrera hit 304 with six home runs, 15 RBI, and a .984 OPS in his final 23 games of the year. The kid might be young enough to attract scouts for Epstein’s island, but he can sure as hell hit a baseball. The Yankees will also start former Cardinal Harrison Bader at center, who gives them a decent bat and great defense. Matt Carpenter, who easily would have been MVP if his slash line was over 140+ games, will be the number one man off the bench. All the respect in the world to Shane Bieber and the Guardians’ bullpen, but the Yankees are a matchup nightmare for Cleveland. This could be the worst thing that has happened to that area of Ohio since Lebron left. Take the Yankees to win game two, and be sure to get your free $200 from Bet365!
