Well, the day has come. Six months after the Yankees kicked off their 2022 season, we’ve arrived upon the ALDS. The goal through the regular season was always to win the AL East and dodge the Wild Card round. That’s been accomplished, and now the sprint to the finish begins. A best-of-five series with Cleveland stands between the Yankees and their first ALCS appearance since 2019.
We’ll have loads more playoff coverage lined up for you ahead of Game 1. Josh will have a preview of the other ALDS and NLDS action ahead, while I’ll give you the lowdown on the pitching matchups for the Yankees-Guardians ALDS (Andrew will also have our staff predictions on the four series). Peter will also go over the keys to Game 1 for Gerrit Cole, Andrés highlights why Giancarlo Stanton is so crucial to this postseason run, and Matt Provenzano provides a Yankees vibe check before we set off on this playoff journey. And don’t miss the annual Sporcle quiz of the 2022 roster!
