And So It Begins

My four biggest questions heading into the ALDS:

1- Can Andy Pettitte be “Andy Pettitte” when he gets the ball?

2- Is Mariano Rivera over his September slump?

3- Can Jorge Posada stop the Twins from running wild on the bases?

4- Will Kerry Wood throw strikes when it counts?

It is going to be a fascinating series. I think the Yankees’ offense has a clear advantage over the Twins’ pitching on paper, but we have seen the Yankees’ offense disappear at inopportune times. If the Yankees hit, there is not stopping them, if the game becomes a battle of pitching staffs, the Yankees could be in trouble. The big guy starts it off tonight, welcome back to October!
