Writers from around the Tribune Co. will discuss the New York Yankees, who trail the Detroit Tigers, two games to one, in the best-of-seven American League Championship Series. You can join the discussion by voting in the poll and leaving a comment of your own. Mike DiGiovanna, Los Angeles Times Can the Yankees recover from a 0-2 hole? Yes. A team with their firepower can get hot and win four of five games. Will they? No. Though it should be a relief to escape a toxic Yankee Stadium environment, where there were far more boos for the home team than the visitors, the Yankees are going into the teeth of the Tigers rotation -- Justin Verlander and Max Scherzer -- for Games 3 and 4. Too many of New York's key hitters are in deep funks -- Robinson Cano, Alex Rodriguez and Curtis Granderson are a combined 8 for 81 in the post-season -- and Verlander and Scherzer aren't comfortable at-bats for hot hitters, let alone those who are struggling.

Everyone expects the Dodgers to win. They did last year, and they just put up $215 million for Clayton Kershaw, to better their chance to win for many years to come. No one expects the Angels to win. They sat out the playoffs last year - for the fourth consecutive year - and they pretty much sat out free agency too. After owner Arte Moreno dropped $375 million on Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton, the Angels' largest expenditure this winter came to $16 million, for setup man Joe Smith.

New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano drove in 85 runs last season, a very respectable number. His current hitting streak has him on pace to surpass that total by year's end. Cano has a major-league-best .361 batting average and 50 RBI near the season's halfway mark, landing him in the top 10 in the American League. Cano, who has a .413 on-base percentage and 53 runs, said he has become more patient at the plate. Viewing more pitches also helped him to hit .400 in April and .357 in June, he said.

The Dodgers' expected signing of Cuban second baseman Alexander Guerrero puts a spotlight on the most anticipated free-agent saga of the coming off-season: Whither Robinson Cano ? This saga comes with a song: "Crown," the Jay-Z song that features this lyric: " Scott Boras , you over baby/Robinson Cano, you coming with me. " When Jay-Z expanded from rap star to sports agent, he recruited Cano away from Boras, who is perhaps baseball's most prominent agent. If Jay-Z wants to prosper in his new calling, and if his first baseball client is the undisputed king of this year's free-agent class, Jay-Z had better land the second baseman a mega-contract.

Reporting from Phoenix — Matt Kemp admitted he got a little excited at his first taste of All-Star competition, even if it was basically just batting practice. "I was probably a little amped up. Probably a little quick," the Dodgers outfielder said after Monday's home run derby. But even the fact he finished last in the eight-man event with just two home runs couldn't take the shine off his evening. "It was tight, man. That was a great experience," Kemp said. "I wish I could have hit more home runs.

Nick Swisher hit the first of three consecutive home runs that sent Phil Hughes and the New York Yankees to their eighth straight victory, 11-4 over the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday night. Robinson Cano and Melky Cabrera also hit solo shots to right field in the second inning against Jeremy Guthrie -- all with two strikes.

Angel ace Jered Weaver came out of Monday's game after 12 pitches, injuring his lower back while throwing a first-inning strike to New York Yankees cleanup hitter Robinson Cano. After delivering a 1-0 pitch, Weaver leaped off the mound in pain. Manager Mike Scioscia and a trainer ran out to Weaver, who tried to talk them into leaving him in the game. But after tossing a warmup pitch to catcher Bobby Wilson, it was obvious Weaver was in too much pain to continue. Frustrated, he walked off the mound and into the clubhouse.

Hey, at least Matt Kemp didn't aggravate his hamstring. Otherwise, Kemp looked a lot like someone who hasn't played a major league game since May during Monday's All-Star Home Run Derby at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. While the Angels' Mark Trumbo was advancing to the semifinals with seven homers,  Kemp hit only … one. Last year he hit two. Doubt the Dodgers were too upset that Kemp, on the disabled list with a strained hamstring, was eliminated in the first round.
