Guardians vs Yankees Prediction & Pick
The Guardians have the pitching depth to give the Yankees a run for their money here. Cleveland's top three starters possess an ERA under 3.40 and closer Emmanuel Clase finished the regular season with the most saves in baseball (42). They also have a legitimate superstar anchoring their offense in Jose Ramirez.
New York's lineup is too powerful to go against, though. The trio of Judge, Anthony Rizzo and Giancarlo Stanton have combined for an impressive 125 home runs in 2022. There's pop up and down the lineup and no easy out for opposing pitchers.
The bats will come alive in this series and help the Yankees secure a spot in the ALCS.
Final Series Prediction: Yankees Win 3-1
