Daily Debate: Are the New York Yankees in Trouble?

The New York Yankees lost game two to the Detroit Tigers after winning the conclusion of  game one on Saturday night.  Tonight features a rematch of the series opener that was suspended after two games with the 24-5 Justin Verlander facing 19-8 CC Sabathia in a crucial game three.  AJ Burnett, 11-11 this season with a 5.15 ERA, is the scheduled starter for game four.  He was out of the starting rotation for the American League Divisional Series for the team but the suspended game Friday has created a shortage of starters for the Yankees.  Are they in trouble?  Voice your opinion on the Razz and Jazz Sports Blog Daily Debate.

    Best of 5 series are arguably crapshoots. Every game is a must win. They are in as much trouble as Detroit is with the series tied 1-1.

      The Detroit Tigers always planned to use four starters, whereas the New York Yankees are thrusting an 11-11 veteran pitcher with a 5.15 ERA that very few have confidence in. I think the Yankees are in more trouble.

    Yankees must win tonight because they won’t win with AJ pitching Game 4.

      They didn’t win, so what kind of faith do you have in them today?
