Assuming the Yankees are the A.L. Wildcard team in the post-season this year, their schedule would be as follows:
ALDS Game 1 10/06/10 Away Game Game 2 10/07/10 Away Game 10/08/10 NO GAME SCHEDULED Game 3 10/09/10 Yankee Stadium Game 4* 10/10/10 Yankee Stadium 10/11/10 NO GAME SCHEDULED Game 5* 10/12/10 Away Game ALCS Game 1 10/15/10 Away Game Game 2 10/16/10 Away Game 10/17/10 NO GAME SCHEDULED Game 3 10/18/10 Yankee Stadium Game 4 10/19/10 Yankee Stadium Game 5* 10/20/10 Yankee Stadium 10/21/10 NO GAME SCHEDULED Game 6* 10/22/10 Away Game Game 7* 10/23/10 Away Game World Series Game 1 10/27/10 National League City Game 2 10/28/10 National League City 10/29/10 NO GAME SCHEDULED Game 3 10/30/10 Yankee Stadium Game 4 10/31/10 Yankee Stadium Game 5* 11/01/10 Yankee Stadium 11/02/10 NO GAME SCHEDULED Game 6* 11/03/10 National League City Game 7* 11/04/10 National League City *if necessary
Now, let’s say that EVERYTHING goes PERFECT for the Yankees this post-season. And, by this, I mean, let’s say they win every game they play this October and never lose one – on the way to getting their 28th ring.
If they did that, it would mean that they got a ring and played only five games in Yankee Stadium: one in the ALDS and two in each the ALCS and World Series. Man, that would be strange – but, at least, all the clinchers would be at home.
