Extra Arms: The Astros' roster for the ALCS features one more pitcher than the previous round. Why? Look for experienced leadoff man Brett Gardner to set the tone in multiple games by putting together tough at-bats against the Houston pitching staff. "There's really not a weakness on either side". The last time the Astros made it to a championship series was back in 2005, and that was before their 2013 switch over to the American League.

2017 regular-season stats:.264 average, 594 AB, 96 runs, 157 hits, 26 doubles, 4 triples, 21 HR, 63 RBIs, 72 BB, 122 K, 23 SB, 5 CS, 151 games. The key will be if they can get their starters to go deep into games - instead of lasting only to the third or fourth inning.

Jose Altuve just hit his second home run. "And a couple high-end starting pitching outings won them the series".

"Extremely talented offensively", Girardi said of the Astros. "They're aggressive on the base paths, so you have to control that".

Masahiro Tanaka will start game one for the Yankees on Friday. In an era in which the strikeout is king, Keuchel is a throwback - a sinkerball specialist whose groundball rate of 66.8 percent was by far the highest in the game this season among pitchers with at least 100 innings pitched.

"Keuchel and Verlander are going to go one and two in that order", Hinch told reporters.

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.

"I have a ton of confidence in him", Girardi said of Tanaka.

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

The stakes: The Yankees haven't played in the ALCS since 2012, an eternity when measured in Steinbrenner Years. Games 1 and 2 will be played at Minute Maid Park. These are the guys that got them here, and they're the ones who will take them beyond. "They probably don't throw a ball under 95 [mph]". The Astros have homefield advantage against the Yankees. On the road, the Astros defeated the Yankees, 3-0.

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