Projections 2019: Yanks Stay Alive, Still Face Long Odds

The New York Yankees decided in the bottom of the first inning that they would play another day. They spent the next eight innings ensuring their survival. The Houston Astros will host games six and seven with two chances of thwarting the rebellion. The Washington Nationals wait to meet the victors on their home turf.

Projections as of 16 October 2019

By holding on in game five, the Yankees doubled their chances of winning the ALCS. The Astros are still very, very likely to stop them, 60% favorites to put the series away tonight in Houston.

For DJ LeMahieu, the need to understand has passed, at least for the moment. All that is left is love and wonder.
