Has it been harder for the Yankees to hit homers in the playoffs?
No, not really. In their last sixteen trips to the playoffs, the Yankees have outpaced their regular season home run rate (by AB/HR) six times, and the overall rate is fairly close (31.2 vs. 26.4). Given the colder weather and playoff pitching, that's well within what you'd expect and definitely does not support the supposed idea that home runs just stop happening when the playoffs start.
