New York Yankees
The New York Yankees finished the regular season on a 12–6 run to secure a cozy spot in the 4 vs. 5 matchup of the American League playoff bracket.
Gerrit Cole will start the first game of this three-game series. He was as advertised in his first season as a Yankee, going 7–3 with with a 2.84 ERA and a WHIP under 1.00.
Also important to note here is that Aaron Judge is back and healthy for New York. He returned in the middle of this month after missing a few weeks.
He has gone just 7-for-36 since returning and has not homered. He still has his manager’s confidence, however. Aaron Boone hasn’t moved him off the number two spot in the lineup.
As good as Cole was, his abbreviated regular season will not be good enough to take home the Cy Young in the American League.
That will instead go to Shane Bieber of the Indians, Cole’s opponent in this much important Game 1.
Bieber was the leader in most major pitching categories, including wins, ERA and strikeouts. He fanned over 14 batters per nine innings, compared to just 2.4 walks.
The Indians do not, however, offer much on offense. Jose Ramirez made up for a poor 2019 with 17 home runs and a 163 OPS+ in 2020 but no other Tribe-mate joined him in double-figures.

The posted total will be painfully low but it will be such for a reason. The Indians are really going to struggle to score against Cole and that will just put more pressure on Bieber to match the zeroes.
