New York Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge is "frustrated" he hasn't been on the field while his team has fallen 10 games behind the Boston Red Sox in the American League East."I'm not frustrated with the pace [of the healing]. I'm frustrated with being out Kris Bryant Jersey ," Judge said, per Coley Harvey of ESPN.com.Judge has been out since July 26, when he was hit by a pitch and suffered a chip fracture in his wrist. Harvey noted the Yankees initially said Judge would take three weeks to recover, but general manager Brian Cashman granted "we missed on the time frame" in an interview with WFAN 101.9 FM's Mike Francesa on Wednesday, adding, "It's going to be longer than that."Judge also said the cortisone shot he received Monday was something to "just kind of [get] over the hump" as he eyes a return, but he is yet to take swings with a bat in his hands since he suffered the injury, per Harvey.Last season's American League Rookie of the Year was slashing .285/.398/.548 with 26 home runs and 61 RBI in 99 games before the injury. The batting average would be a career-best mark if it continued, but he is now well behind the 52-homer pace he set in 2017.The Yankees have treaded water without him in August at just 7-8 and now barely have the Red Sox in their sights entering the stretch run.New York still has power with Giancarlo Stanton and Didi Gregorius, but it is missing plenty of punch without Judge and catcher Gary Sanchez, who is on the 10-day disabled list with a groin injury.The Bronx Bombers are likely not going to catch Boston this season but are still 3.5 games ahead of the Oakland Athletics and six games clear of the Seattle Mariners in the race for the American League wild-card positions.All signs point toward their playing in that pressure-packed single-elimination game, and they would surely love to have Judge anchor the middle of the lineup after he garnered his first October experience last year. After the Milwaukee Brewers and Los Angeles Dodgers won tiebreaker games to win National League Central and West Divisions, respectively, the Colorado Rockies and the Chicago Cubs got the postseason started in record-setting fashion.The two teams battled for 13 innings鈥攖he longest win-or-go-home game in Major League Baseball postseason history鈥攂efore the Rockies advanced to the Divisional Series with a 2-1 victory.Backup catcher Tony Wolters drove home the winning run when he singled with two out in the top of the 13th off of Kyle Hendricks. The Cubs were unable to rally in the bottom of the inning and they were eliminated on their home field.The Rockies will meet the Milwaukee Brewers in the National League Divisional Series and they will be joined by the Los Angeles Dodgers and Atlanta Braves. The Brewers and Dodgers will have homefield advantage in those best-of-5 series.Postseason ScheduleWild-Card GamesWednesday, October 3, A's at Yankees, 8 p.m. ET, TBSDivision SeriesNLDSThurs., Oct. 4, Game 1, Rockies at Brewers, 5:07 p.m., ET FS1Thurs., Oct. 4, Game 1, Braves at Dodgers, 8:37 p.m. ET, MLBNFri., Oct. 5, Game 2, Rockies at Brewers http://www.chicagocubsteamshop.com/authentic-addison-russell-jersey , 4:15 p.m. ET, FS1Fri., Oct. 5, Game 2, Braves at Dodgers, 9:37 p.m. ET, FS1Sun., Oct. 7, Game 3, Brewers at Rockies, 4:37 p.m. ET, MLBNSun., Oct. 7, Game 3, Dodgers at Braves, 8:07 p.m. ET, FS1Mon., Oct. 8, Game 4*, Brewers at Rockies, FS1Mon., Oct. 8, Game 4*, Dodgers at Braves, FS1Wed., Oct. 10, Game 5*, Rockies at Brewers FS1Wed., Oct. 10, Game 5*, Braves at Dodgers http://www.chicagocubsteamshop.com/authentic-sammy-sosa-jersey , FS1*If necessaryALDSFriday, October 5, Yankees/A's at Red Sox, Game 1, TBSFriday, October 5, Indians at Astros, Game 1, TBSSaturday, October 6 Yankees/A's at Red Sox, Game 2, TBSSaturday, October 6, Indians at Astros, Game 2, TBSMonday, October 8, Red Sox at Yankees/A's, Game 3, TBSMonday, October 8, Astros at Indians, Game 3, TBSTuesday, October 9, Red Sox at Yankees/A's, Game 4*, TBSTuesday, October 9, Astros at Indians, Game 4* Joe Maddon Jersey , TBSThursday, October 11, Yankees/A's at Red Sox, Game 5*, TBSThursday, October 11, Indians at Astros, Game 5*, TBS*If necessaryLeague Championship SeriesNLCSFriday, October 12, Game 1, FOX or FS1Saturday, October 13, Game 2, FOX or FS1Monday, October 15, Game 3, FOX or FS1Tuesday, October 16, Game 4, FOX or FS1Wednesday, October 17, Game 5*, FOX or FS1Friday, October 19, Game 6*, FOX or FS1Saturday, October 20, Game 7*, FOX or FS1*If necessaryALCSSaturday, October 13 http://www.chicagocubsteamshop.com/authentic-willson-contreras-jersey , Game 1, TBSSunday, October 14, Game 2, TBSTuesday, October 16, Game 3, TBSWednesday, October 17, Game 4, TBSThursday, October 18, Game 5*, TBSSaturday, October 20, Game 6*, TBSSunday, October 21, Game 7*, TBS*If necessaryWORLD SERIESTuesday, October 23, Game 1, FOXWednesday, October 24, Game 2, FOXFriday, October 26, Game 3 , FOXSaturday, October 27, Game 4 Albert Almora Jr Jersey , FOXSunday, October 28, Game 5*, FOXTuesday, October 30 Game 6*, FOXWednesday, October 31 Game 7*, FOXAll games can be live streamed on MLB.TV.Baseball Reference baseball_refMike Trout, career high in WAR: 10.5 (2012, 2016)Mookie Betts, career high in WAR: 10.6 (2018) HSJ0j7xTyWThe American League postseason gets underway Wednesday night as the New York Yankees host the Oakland A's in the wild-card game.The slugging Yankees, who won 100 games this season but still finished eight games behind the Boston Red Sox, and the powerful A's will play for the right to meet the Red Sox in the American League Division Series.The Cleveland Indians and Houston Astros, who represented the American League in the last two World Series, will meet in the other ALDS.After the four division series are completed, the two American League winners will meet in the ALCS, while the two National League survivors will play for the NL pennant.Both league championship series are best-of-7 formats, as is the World Series.The Boston Red Sox will have homefield advantage throughout the postseason, while the Milwaukee Brewers will have that advantage in the National League playoffs.PredictionsAL Wild-CardNew York Yankees over Oakland A'sALDSBoston Red Sox over New York Yankees, 3-1Cleveland Indians over Houston Astros, 3-2ALCSBoston Red Sox over Cleveland Indians, 4-2NLDSMilwaukee Brewers over Colorado Rockies, 3-2Atlanta Braves over Los Angeles Dodgers, 3-1NLCSMilwaukee Brewers over Atlanta Braves, 4-2World SeriesBoston Red Sox over Milwaukee Brewers, 4-2While they won 108 games during the regular season, the Red Sox fattened up on some of the worst teams in the American League. Many observers don't see the Red Sox winning their fourth World Series since 2004.There are key issues, including ace starter Chris Sale's balky left shoulder and the Red Sox vulnerability in the bullpen.However, the starting lineup has the ability to produce consistently and they have a couple of big-time producers in Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez.The belief here is that Sale will have enough to get through six innings in each of his postseason starts and manager Alex Cora will manipulate the bullpen so that it will survive until closer Craig Kimbrel can take over.The Red Sox will celebrate at Fenway Park, breaking hearts throughout Wisconsin as the Brewers fall just a bit short.
