MLB Postseason 2017: Yanks Back on Their Feet, Have Long Way to Go

The New York Yankees came back home and reverted back into the offensive powerhouse we've all come to know and love/revile. The Houston Astros are still in the driver's seat, of course, up 2-1 with a maximum of four left to play, two in New York and two at home. Nevertheless, the Bronx Bombers are showing some signs of life, rebounding to 5:1 World Series hopefuls.

Estimated Series Win Probabilities for Playoff Teams

New York's title chances sit a bit higher than they did following game four of the ALDS vs. Cleveland; Houston is only slightly worse off than it was after game one of the ALCS.

Estimated Probability of Discrete Series Results

The most likely result is still an Astros victory, most likely in six games.

All four teams are in action once again, with the lower seeds hosting the higher seeds and hoping their home field advantage can help them climb their way back into relevance. Who will find themselves atop the hill, and who will find themselves staring into the crevasse? Check back tomorrow to find out.
