NEW YORK (WABC) -- In a season so poetic, the New York Yankees look to add one more win against the Houston Astros for the right to play the Los Angeles Dodgers in the World Series. Here's a bold prediction described with rhymes:

Give the ball to the man who has done it all

Big game after big game the big fella has gotten the call

He has a "ten and oh" record after the Yankees fall

So Joe Girardi is confident CC Sabathia will give it his all

Because this is it, the time is now to win it or be eliminated

Good thing is, the Yankees are familiar with this

They know that in Game 7, they need to take care of business

And do to the Astros, what they did to the Indians

For those who have witnessed, it started with the Twins

Then comeback after comeback, the Bombers persisted

With blistered baseballs, they overcame missed calls

And called on the Judge to restore order and law

But this team was fun even before this playoff run

From the chambers in right-field, to a stadium of thumbs

To the "Toe-night Show" which had begun from a series of home runs

This do-or-die mentality has been the theme of the month

So whose side are you on, New York or Houston?

In this winner-takes-all, LA will host the Yankees at home.
