I know some posters on here continue to purport the myth that home runs are not a viable source of scoring runs in the playoffs, so please read here:

However, the aggregate data during the LDS era suggests the growing conventional emphasis on manufacturing runs in October is greatly exaggerated. Since 1995, 35.5% of runs during the regular season have come via the long ball, compared to 39.1% in the postseason.
Additionally, the Yankees were a top ten team in EVERY major offensive statistic last season, so to suggest that they could only score via the home run is ludicrous.
