Joe Girardi discusses his regrets on Saturday, Oct., 7, 2017, one day after the Yankees loss Game 2 of the ALDS in Cleveland to the Indians, 9-8, in 13 innings.

"II'll have the whole off-season to think about what I'll do moving forward", Tanaka said through a translator.

Everyone from Ron Darling to Nate Silver tells us that the best way to win the World Series is strong pitching and great gloves up the middle. He joined me to discuss C.C. Sabathia and the series as a whole. But if they want me to start, I'll be ready for that, too. "So it's not surprising at all". If a situation arises prior to game four - when Severino is now scheduled to start if the Indians do not pull off the sweep - where he's needed in a jam, would it really hurt the Yankees to use him?

"It's a good lineup", Sabathia said of the Indians. They run. They've got power. Sabathia was only at 77 pitches, he wasn't falling apart, and the Yankees had a five-run lead.

"We don't just believe in one or two guys, we believe our entire team".

Kluber could be on the verge of winning his second Cy Young Award. Over his final three starts in the Bronx this season, Gray allowed 15 runs and 17 hits - six of which were home runs - across 15 and two-thirds innings, fishing with a 5.65 ERA in five home starts.

In six career postseason starts, all past year, Kluber is 4-1 with a 1.83 ERA. In the sixth inning, after a Carlos Santana walk and a Jay Bruce lineout, Yankees manager Joe Girardi went to his bullpen.

Progressive Field went nuts and the Yankees were suddenly closer to squandering a great effort that knocked Cleveland ace Corey Kluber out of the game far earlier than expected.

"I screwed up", Girardi said (via the New York Daily News).

There had already been some rumblings that Joe Girardi could be fired after this season, to the point that even before the season, NJ.com was speculating as to who could be the New York Yankees manager in 2018.
