Joe Girardi may have cost the New York Yankees a win in Game 2 of the ALDS Friday night when he did not challenge a critical call, and it would appear flame-throwing reliever Aroldis Chapman is among those who are frustrated with the manager. He joined me to discuss C.C. Sabathia and the series as a whole. Kluber needed 38 pitches to get through the first. It's about us winning three games before they do. "Usually, we give CC somewhere around 90 pitches". He will be facing the Indians for the first time since August 6, 2016, when he was the losing pitcher in a 5-2 decision.

Bauer allowed just two hits, struck out eight and walked one on his way to the victory.

Things didn't start out well for Sabathia. I think he was at 80, and it was set up for our bullpen. "So I'm not really too concerned about it". Roberto Perez started behind the plate in Game 1.

According to the Indians Twitter post, he is feeling much better. They run. They've got power. He threw 77 pitches.

In fact, the Yankees reached Kluber for six runs and knocked out the AL Cy Young award candidate after 2 2/3 innings.

The Yankees built an 8-3 lead after 4½ innings on Friday, only to see the Indians tie the score on Francisco Lindor's grand slam off Chad Green (and the rightfield foul pole) in the sixth and Jay Bruce's solo shot off David Robertson in the eighth.

Kluber was 18-4 wtih a 2.25 ERA in the regular season. That includes his start against the Cubs in Game 7 of the World Series.

Sonny Grey (0-1) didn't make it out of the fourth, surrendering three runs on three hits and four walks through three and a-third innings. In six career starts against NY, he is 5-1 with a 1.80 ERA.

"I screwed up", Girardi said in a news conference Saturday.
