    That's your first mistake. No cause to just assume that out of hand.

    Even down 0-3, which would be a huge hole, you'd like your chances with CC in two of the remaining must-win games. Gigantic longshot? Yes, but CC would certainly be ALCS MVP if they pulled it off.

    Well you're right. Of course I can't know what's gonna happen, but there is for sure cause to assume it after the lackluster postseason hitting our offense has displayed in these 7 playoff games - against the best pitcher in the world, in his home park. I'm sorry if that doesn't make me optimistic...

    Nothing is impossible, but I would say there certainly is some cause to assume that there.

    Sure, but you said it yourself. It would the sort of a longshot that's not really worth discussing about right now.

    As they say in poker, scared money is dead money. It can apply to baseball, and I'm sure the team is not going in scared. Emotional perhaps, but fear cannot be a factor. There is no use writing off this game because of Verlander. The Yankees have hit him in the past, and hard. The Yankees have blown up many great pitchers as have any other team. Verlander's record is not perfect. No one's is. He's beatable and the Yankees have the offensive potential to do it. I'm not writing this one off.

    I too dislike when fans think that just because Verlander is pitching, the team ought to forfeit the game.

    Let's try to remember 1999 and 2000 Pedro who happened to be about 3 billion times better than Verlander. The Yankees used to beat him. Or at least win the games which Pedro pitched.
    They have a chance. The Detroit defense is not great. Get balls into play. Make things happen by putting pressure on this defense.
    I like the Yankees' chances tonight.

    The 1996 Yankees went down 0-2 at home and then took to the road to face Tom Glavine, Denny Neagle, and John Smoltz before coming home to face Greg Maddux.

    We're all well aware of how good Verlander is, but the Braves' Top 3 were ridiculous and the Yankees beat them all.

    I may be pointing out the obvious, but we only lost to Verlander by 1 run.

    That and during regular season, we slapped him around to the tune of .859OPS.

    We also won 2 out of the 3 games he started against us.

    I guess there's nothing more to be said here. Can anyone even say they had a good postseason?
