NYY 2 @ BOS 6

Final

Updated:

New York Yankees' fans deem World Series Championships to be their birthright. However, there has not been a new banner added at Yankee Stadium since 2009. The Pinstripes have also lost their last four trips to the ALCS. The Yankees have not had a losing season during this pennant-less stretch, but no trips to the World Series leave players and fans wanting. Two big problems have plagued New York in recent seasons. Number one has been injuries. The other is sporadic starting pitching. New York had a pedestrian batting average across the 60-game 2020 schedule. Nevertheless, the Yankees compensated with the fifth most home runs and fourth best scoring offense.

New York signed Gerrit Cole as its top-line starting pitcher. Cole performed as advertised, but the rest of the starters didn't overwhelm opponents. James Paxton started only five games. Masahiro Tanaka pitched well, but he's left for Japan. New York traded for promising Pittsburgh Pirate Jameson Taillon, but Taillon is coming off Tommy John Surgery. However, the Yankees have deep pockets. As they often do, New York inked a big name pitcher. Corey Kluber has a proven track record, but is aging. He threw only one game for Texas in 2020. If the Bronx Bombers stay healthy, they will score runs. The key for New York to return to World Series prominence is on the strength of their pitching. If an average 2020 staff improves, the Yankees will be a bonafide contender to make the 2021 World Series.
