Astros starting Keuchel in Game 1, Verlander in Game 2

Astros starting Keuchel in Game 1, Verlander in Game 2

"I can recall Masahiro Tanaka saying through his interpreter after Game 3, 'We are going to win Game 4 then go back to Cleveland and take care of business.' It showed enormous confidence even though they were down 1-2". And when they meet in the American League Championship Series, beginning Friday night at Minute Maid Park, it may be the most extreme collision of power versus power the sport has ever seen. In 17 at-bats, Judge has only hit into play four times, including just one home run.

The best-of-seven series pits the team with the most World Series championships (the Yankees, with 27) against a team with only one trip to the Fall Classic in its history (a 2005 sweep at the hands of the White Sox). The Yankees' last ALCS appearance was in 2012.

But Tanaka didn't survive the second inning May 14 against the Astros, who just got through knocking around Red Sox starting pitching for 16 runs in 11⅔ innings over four games.

"It's a complete lineup throughout", Yankees Manager Joe Girardi said of the Astros.

The Astros scored the most runs in baseball this season and have a formidable 1-2 at the top of the rotation with Justin Verlander and Dallas Keuchel.

"I just couldn't get out of my head: 'I didn't think I'd be here".

Verlander may be the one who gets them there.

It's a great time to be the Houston Astros, who topped the Boston Red Sox in the ALDS and are fully rested and ready to go against a New York Yankees team that is depleted after coming back from a 2-0 deficit against the Cleveland Indians. "They probably don't throw a ball under 95 [mph]".

Yankees Relievers v. Astros Hitters: The Yankee bullpen features several really hard-throwing relievers.

Chatter about Girardi's future in the Bronx has been muffled since the Yankees became only the 10th team to win a best-of-five series after dropping the first two games.

What happens when two large, immovable objects are slammed against each other at terminal velocity?
