ALCS Game 1: Masahiro Tanaka to start for New York Yankees vs

ALCS Game 1: Masahiro Tanaka to start for New York Yankees vs

Justin Verlander has a 1.88 ERA in his last nine postseason starts dating back to 2012.

First Two Games: The first two games (both at home) are key for the Astros, in which they'll have their best two pitchers starting.

The prediction: After coming all the way back to vanquish the 102-win Indians on Wednesday night, the Yankees were flying so high that they barely needed a jet to get to Houston. It was a hole they fell into with a gut-wrenching Game 2 loss after manager Joe Girardi failed to challenge a play that opened the door for a stunning Cleveland rally.

Keuchel v. The Yanks: Dallas Keuchel starts Game 1.

"There's so many young guys on this team that maybe they don't realize they are supposed to lose", Singleton said. It will be a challenge for the 25-year-old MVP co-favorite to rediscover his swing in such a short amount of time. They're going to hit their home runs, but they're going to do a lot of other things offensively. "As the years go on and he knows himself better and the league better, those slumps will become shorter".

The Houston Astros might not know yet who they'll play in the American League Championship Series, but they do know who'll be on the mound when the series begins. And in Game 1, they didn't waste any time putting it to good use. He's 2-0 with a 3.12 ERA in the postseason. In Game 4, their pitchers' fastballs averaged a staggering 98 miles per hour, never once dipping below 96 - and that was with Chapman, who sometimes touches 102 and 103 miles per hour, not even participating. It will feature the major league record-holder for most home runs by a rookie, New York's Aaron Judge (52), and six of the top 15 sluggers, by slugging percentage, in the A.L. It will feature the hardest-throwing pitcher in history, Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman, and the two top candidates for league most valuable player, Judge and Houston's Jose Altuve.

"If the Yankees are going to do it against this particular team, they are going to really have to pitch well", Singleton said.
