The Yankees released their playoff roster and set their rotation for the first 3 games of the ALDS this morning, and there were no real surprises. Let’s take a quick look at the roster, courtesy of Sam Borden:
Pitchers: Sabathia, Pettitte, Hughes, Burnett, Mitre, Moseley, Logan, Robertson, Chamberlain, Wood, Rivera
Catchers: Posada, Cervelli
Since AJ Burnett’s awful performance in last night’s game against the Blue Jays, the pundits have ramped up the “Yankees have no pitching” storyline.

Game 1: October 6th
Game 2: [...]
From Mark Feinsand:
That means handing the ball to Sabathia in Game 1 – and likely in Game 4, too. Sabathia could pitch in Games 1, 4 and 7 against the Angels while only having to take the ball on short rest in the middle start thanks to off-days.
