I was just looking at the 2006 schedule for the Yankees.
And, MLB is giving the Yankees the day off after the All-Star break. So, for the week of July 9th, the Yanks will be off Monday through Thursday.
That seems so odd. It will almost be like a week without baseball – in the middle of July.
The White Sox, who play the Yankees in New York after the break, have the same day off. Why not play a game then that day? Very strange.
