Now James' Yankees are preparing for Game 1 of the American League Division Series against the Cleveland Indians, and they could not help but show off one of their biggest fans on Twitter. He went 4-7 with a 3.72 ERA in 11 outings for NY.

Judge and his teammates capped a travel day with a workout at Progressive Field, where both he and Todd Frazier hit tape-measure shots into the vacant left-field bleachers during batting practice. "They're a team that can get very hot".

In this ALDS, Indians manager Terry Francona is carrying 11 pitchers, seven infielders, five outfielders and two catchers on the 25-man roster. "He's bad for the teams you're playing against". Overall, New York's relievers have been as good as it gets, but certain individuals have had erratic stretches here and there. "I'm ready. I want to get back out there". I know, if you throw it in the wrong place, he's going to hit it a long way.

Trevor Bauer is on the hill for the Tribe and Sonny Gray will toe the bump for the Yanks.

Indians: RH Cody Allen (3-7, 2.94, 30/34 saves), RH Bryan Shaw (4-6, 3.52 in 79 games), LH Andrew Miller (4-3, 1.44, 95 Ks in 62 2/3 IP), RH Joe Smith (3-0, 3.33 in 59 games), LH Tyler Olson (1-0, 0.00 in 30 games), RH Mike Clevinger (12-6, 3.11 in 21 starts).

It makes sense. Then again, it seems risky.

Gray, who was acquired at the trading deadline to help get NY into October went 1-2 with a 4.86 ERA in three starts against Cleveland. While the days off in the series mean Kluber could still come back to start Game 5 on his regular four days of rest if needed, if the Indians lose the opener there will be a lot of second-guessing.

The postseason is finally upon us and the New York Yankees are back under the bright lights of October. "They've got some scrappy guys that put the ball in play and run", Bauer said. "You've got some veteran guys in there, too, that balance everything out".

So can the Indians, who don't have a hole in their lineup and finished strong, stringing together 22 straight wins from August 24 to September 14 and winning 33 of their last 37. Cleveland also beat NY in a 1997 Division Series.

"Everybody's even", Francona said. NY was unable to catch rival Boston for the AL East crown, but the team played some of its best baseball down the stretch and went 20-8 in September to secure the franchise's 53rd postseason appearance.

It really doesn't matter who is starting for the Yankees, though. "It's going to be who plays the best". Montgomery acquitted himself well as a starter in his rookie year, as his better-than-average 4.36 DRA attests, and his stuff will play up in the bullpen.

From there, the board spreads out to the teams with Division Series home-field advantage, the Houston Astros (+500) and Washington Nationals (+700), followed by the Boston Red Sox (+800) and defending World Series champion Chicago Cubs (+800). But that's just something every victor has to flirt with - a natural attraction to other great winners, and the Yankees' illustrious history has its allure for champs like LeBron.
