Playoff Predictions: Yankees/Tigers

This may be the most difficult series to handicap of all the division series.

Justin Verlander is entering the postseason much hotter than CC Sabathia and I'd look for that trend to continue. The Yankee offense will perform well beyond game one, but Ivan Nova's inexperience is worrisome in game two.
A lot will fall on Freddy Garcia in game three, but the middle of that Detroit order may be too much to handle. This series will come down to which club gets more out of the back of their rotation. Ultimately, I see the Tigers taking it in five tight games.
