Verlander vs Paxton
Three must win games for the Yankees. Prior to yesterday's game, Szymborski calculated the Astros winning game four followed by three Yankees wins at 5.9% chance of happening following the rainout. Not quite the least likely but very close. The Astros meanwhile had a 70.1% chance.
Fast forward through a pleasingly error-filled Yankees loss and that probability is now 92%. They also have an improbable 65% chance at winning it all. That unfortunately means another short series and lots of waiting until the World Series.
Stuck with only ALCS now.
Greinke vs Tanaka
I opined to someone that I'm not sure if this series will make it back to St. Louis. I doubt there will be a sweep but winning two games against Strasburg, Corbin, and Sánchez seems unlikely.
James Paxton vs Justin Verlander
Astros discover for themselves the Yankees are pretty good. They have some good pitchers too so this should be a good series still.
Washington at St. Louis, in progress.

Two of these teams get to face each other Friday. The other two get to console themselves that they at least weren't swept.
