New York Yankees Use LeBron James To Troll Cleveland Indians On Twitter

Cleveland Indians LA Dodgers

Cleveland Indians LA Dodgers

At 7:38 p.m. (ET), the New York Yankees will welcome the Cleveland Indians to Yankee Stadium. Although the Cleveland Indians have a star-studded lineup featuring Francisco Lindor, Jason Kipnis and Jose Ramirez, the Yankees feel confident heading into Cleveland.

For Friday's Game 2, NY will send CC Sabathia to the mound, while the Indians will start Corey Kluber. Trevor Bauer is starting for Cleveland.

In the month of August, Bauer posted a 5-0 record and 2.30 earned run average in seven appearances, including six starts. The Indians are respectful, but not intimidated, which is why it says here the Indians will win the best-of-five series in four games. Cleveland's weighted on-base average against pitches 95 miles per hour or faster was.316, the 16th best mark in the majors; it was.341 (second-best) against everything else. Also of note - Cleveland has met the Dodgers franchise in the World Series before, but not the Dodgers (and certainly not the Los Angeles Dodgers). NY won the 1998 AL Championship Series.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi expected to see Kluber in Game 1. "We obviously understand what's at stake, but I don't think that's a reason to put any more pressure on ourselves".

In 11 starts with the Yankees, Gray went 4-7 with a 3.72 ERA. The teams finished 1-2 in ERA.

For years, the world's biggest oil producers have clashed over Middle East politics and battled for energy market share. As leader of Saudi Arabia, King Salman travels in rarefied air. "There is some interest, of course", he said.

The 32-year-old OH native openly supported the Indians last season when he donned team gear during the World Series versus the Chicago Cubs, and even pumped the crowd before the game.

Robertson went from being a closer with the Chicago White Sox to being willing to pitch in any situation at any point in the game. For New York, July trade acquisition Todd Frazier hit.294 with a HR as a Yankee against Cleveland pitching. The Indians were 15th with 212 homers.

And yet, they are squaring off in the American League Division Series against the New York Yankees, the phoenix risen from the ashes of profligate spending and aging ex-superstars.

Below is a look at the entire schedule for the Yankees vs Indians series. He batted.299 with nine homers and 52 RBIs in 90 games, including.357 with a homer against NY this season. The Yankees had the day off on Wednesday to get refreshed, but Green went two innings in the wild-card game. He pitched two innings in relief, striking out four batters. We saw on Tuesday night that the Yankees go about six-deep in their bullpen, and you can be sure that every time NY gets a lead, Girardi will not hesitate to go to his team's biggest advantage. That could end up being in Arizona's wheelhouse since power threats such as 1B Paul Goldschmidt, 3B Mike Lamb and RF J.D. Martinez make them one of baseball's best teams at hitting against high velocity. The boys in pinstripes will not go gently into that good night, and Indians manager Terry Francona should be preparing for that contingency. Dodgers are second with 31. And it's not like the Indians are all pitch, no hit: Cleveland was third in the AL in runs (818), second in batting average (.263) and second in OPS (.788). "Obviously it's a completely different level here in the big leagues".
