Joe Girardi Can't Be Judged Solely on One No-Call

But if he could do it over? As he has said in past years when his contract is up, he wants to consult with his family to decide if he even wants to return. "And, yeah, I should've challenged it, now that I think about it".

As a former high school baseball player myself, who grew up in the era of New York-Cleveland post-season clashes, I have nothing but respect in tipping my hat to that loaded '98 team that has earned the right of being called, "The Best Team Ever", and while Cleveland had their good teams, New York was better in terms of hitting and pitching. Here's all you need to know about what happened. You are the only person in a Yankees shirt who can call for a replay, because you are the manager.

However, Jackson came through big time in Game 2.

Aaron Hicks hit a three-run homer off Kluber and Gary Sanchez and Greg Bird hit two-run shots for the Yankees, who may have caught a bad break before Lindor's homer.

"I used the formula the other day".

"Physically, they're fine", Girardi said. I mean, it was a lot of hard work.

Girardi said all the criticism lately is nothing new. My biggest concern is to win a game today and we can worry about that when the time comes.

"He's been a little inconsistent this year, mostly in the first half", Francona said. "We'll continue to have it".

Big Takeaways: Myles Garrett makes presence felt on very 1st snap
The Jets are unexpectedly riding a two-game winning streak as they head to Cleveland for a matchup with the winless Browns . Thankfully, Jets K Chandler Catanzaro was able to drill a 41 yard FG with 28 seconds left in OT to give them the victory.

Encarnacion was lifted from Friday's game after badly spraining his ankle trying to get back to second base.

New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi gestures during a news conference before an American League Division Series baseball game against the Cleveland Indians in New York, Sunday, Oct. 8, 2017.

Francona said Michael Brantley will likely start as the DH in place of Encarnacion on Sunday. Brantley missed Cleveland's run into the World Series in 2016 and sat out 50 games after August 8 this year with an ankle ligament injury. Winning three straight games against an Indians team that hasn't lost three straight games since July is rather daunting, but the Yankees can't look at it that way. "We didn't get many free base runners, which we have in the past off of him, and he was really good".

Carlos Carrasco is making his postseason debut, but Indians fans likely aren't too anxious about whether or not he feels the pressure in the Bronx. Bauer missed his first scheduled start in last year's playoffs when he sliced his finger playing with a drone.

By acclamation, the Indians trace Carrasco's breakthrough to 2014, when he began the season in the bullpen. He was especially dominant on the road, going 11-2 with a 2.65 ERA. After the game, Sanchez told the New York Dailey News that he heard something as the ball crossed the plate.

Bruce gave the Indians a 3-0 lead in the fourth with a towering homer to right.

"As soon as I hit it, I knew it had a chance of going out", Lindor said.

The Cleveland fans came alive after Lindor's grand slam, and it nearly felt like Cleveland had won the game outright then, even though the Yankees still had a one-run lead.
