May 2006 looks to be tough for the Yankees – according to some reports on an early look at the 2006 schedule.
8 games against Boston.
6 games against Texas (and Buck Showalter).
And 3 games each against the Mets and Oakland.
Last season, the Yankees went 17-10 in May – and still had a bad (for them) overall first half record (42-39).
It’s still not 100% clear as to who the Yankees will be playing in April 2006. Nonetheless, whatever teams they may be facing, it’s probably pretty important to get off to a good start in 2006 and have a little wiggle room with that May schedule (for next year).
