Domingo German Powers New York to Game 1 Win
When the Yankees and Blue Jays kickstart their series, on Thursday night, Domingo German will head to the hill as the starter for New York.
German has been one of the best pitchers in the bigs this season, posting a 14-2 record and 3.98 ERA.
With the powerful righty on the mound, look for the Yankees to come away with a big win.
Blue Jays should bounce back for Game 2 Friday
Unfortunately for New York, J.A. Happ has had a rough season thus far, posting a 9-6 record, but with a disappointing 5.24 ERA.
This is good news for Toronto, who will send Sean Reid-Foley to the bump for the start.
With Happ pitching for New York, this should open up the chance for Toronto to even up the series on Friday Night.
Yankees hold the advantage for the series finale
While it's undecided who the Yankees will start for Sunday's series finale, Toronto is all set to send out Trent Thornton to face the mighty New York lineup.
Unfortunately for Blue Jays fans, Thornton is sporting a 5.55 ERA and 4-7 record. This automatically gives New York the advantage, as Aaron Judge, Didi Gregorius and others will look to have a field day.
New York remains among the favorites to win the World Series
With its powerful lineup, featuring Aaron Judge, Didi Gregorius, Gleyber Torres and others, New York is no question one of the best teams in MLB.
And according to Sports Interaction, they have the third-best odds to win the World Series at 6.00.
When they return to full health, though, they'll become an even more dangerous team for the Astros and Dodgers to worry about.
