Possibly it’s going to be Gerrit Cole, the New York Yankees’ ace, who will sq. off with Nathan Eovaldi, Boston’s right-handed starter. Or perhaps this will probably be a one-game playoff for the hitters, which means the one pictures of Cole or Eovaldi will probably be full of frustration and melancholy. The Yankees will trot out Aaron Pass judgement on, Giancarlo Stanton, Anthony Rizzo and Joey Gallo. The Purple Sox, missing that kind of hulking power, will lean on a more youthful core of Rafael Devers, Xander Bogaerts and Alex Verdugo, even though Kyle Schwarber can fit the Yankees’ energy.
