Pinstripe Alley open thread - 9/29/20

The first of hopefully many open threads this postseason is here.

The day that the Yankees dreamed of when they signed Gerrit Cole way back in December is finally here — the team will trot out their ace to open their postseason run tonight. It’s going to look a lot different than they may have envisioned, but it’s here nevertheless.

We’ve got plenty of coverage left to get to before first pitch, with a series preview from Cooper and some analysis on Shane Bieber from Tyler. Dan Kelly highlights three Yankees that can find redemption with a strong postseason, and John picks out three Yankees to watch for the series. We’ll have a game thread closer to game time, but in the meantime feel free to use this as your open thread leading up to the game.

Fun Questions:

1. Who goes deeper into the game tonight — Bieber or Cole?

2. Does the Game One winner just end up sweeping?
