Severino v. McKenzie (+104)

Should be another exciting game @4:30p in Cleveland. If McKenzie can go into the 7th with tied game or with the lead, then the bullpen can take care of the rest.

This looks like a great matchup in pitching.
McKinzie appears to have the edge. NYY 0.167 avg in limited at bats vs McKenzie and he has been pitching lights out lately.

GL Headsterx. I'm with you on the Evil empire falling to 1-2 today.

Cole v. Quantrill (+158)

All three teams facing elimination were eliminated yesterday. Can Yankees continue to trend in rematch from Game 1? Let's hope so... Go Guardians!

2-1 (+3.53)

All joe Schmoes are already on suicide watch after 49ers,TB and GB went down. Yankee loss here will destroy many.

The best laid plans of mice and men oft go awry.

The Black Hole of Vegas has reared its ugly head. I lost all hope for Guardians to win Game 5. Luckily, I can throw in the towel and take Yanks @ -150 w/ small loss as the win series was +150.

2-2 (+2.53)

Wow.....I'm shocked.
Its a bullpen game so anything can happen. Yanks pen isn't that great.

Both starting pitchers are not stellar which I think benefits Yankees more due to their power hitters. If they get a lead w/ the starting pitcher Civale, like what happened yesterday, then it won't matter about Guardians pen as it'll be too late. Can't expect another miracle comeback like in Game 3.

WTF!?! How is Civale still scheduled to start? Yanks changed to Cortes. Guardians seems like they want to lose.
Maybe Civale will get pulled early. Pitch him 2-3 innings and call it a day and bring in Bieber?????
Whats the logic here?

Yeah, I think Civale will be on a short leash but they said Bieber won't pitch unless necessary as it will be on 3 days rest and want to avoid short resting period. However, Cortes is on 3 days rest so maybe that will affect him today. Oh man, I'm flip-flopping and thinking of going back to picking Guardians.

When facing elimination, 3 days rest is something you go with.
This will likely bite CLE in the butt.

Oh man, something might be wrong with me but flipping it back to Guardians +148.

Either MVP of this series will be the rain or I'll get mud in my face. Very irrelevant trend but Guardians 1-0 in rain postponed game. I gotta look at a bright spot heading into the final game.

Jameson Taillon, who had originally been scheduled to start Game 5 against the Guardians, has instead been tabbed as the Game 1 starter vs. the Astros on Wednesday if the Yankees advance, manager Aaron Boone said.
