Three Thoughts on Game 1
Posted on October 13, 2012
- How big a factor will the right field porch in Yankee Stadium be in this series? I can see multiple-homer games by Prince Fielder and Alex Avila at some point. And maybe even Andy Dirks.
- If you don’t have Justin Verlander to start game, Doug Fister is one hell of a Plan B. Not only is he unflappable, he has two postseason starts in the Bronx from last year under his belt. (Though his first start wasn’t really a start, but picking up the rain-delayed Game 1 from last year’s ALDS.) He’ll be money tonight.
- Was it me or does Miguel Cabrera look like he was pressing near the end of the ALDS? Maybe the fresh start of tonight’s game will ease him up.
Enjoy the game.
