Major League Baseball unveils play-off schedule

The 2012 post season schedule had been released by Major League baseball, making October a postseason can’t miss event. Here is how it will work this season.

1. The 2012 postseason will begin on October 5, with the Wildcard games held on that date. The American League and National League Division series will begin on October 6 with the second and third seeded division winners from October 6-11 and the series with the top seed and the Wildcard winners on October 7-12 if necessary.

2. The ALCS will begin on October 13 and will run through October 21 while the NLCS will begin on October 14 and will run through October 22 if there is a Game 7.

3. After one day off, the World Series will take place on October 24 at the home of the National League Champion with Game 7 (if there is so) to be played at the same stadium on November 1.

There are somewhat a new format this year. Here are the new rules.

1. For the 2012 season only, the Division series will begin with two games in the lower seed’s ballpark and will end with up to three in the higher seed’s ballpark.

2. Although the format for the Champion series and the World series will be the same, there will only be two days off in each series: One between Game 2 and 3 and one between Game 5 and 6.

Broadcasting: TBS will broadcast the Wildcard games and up to 18 of the possible 20 games in the Division series round. MLB Network will have one Division series to be determined on October 7 and another on October 10. TBS will also broadcast the American League Championship series while FOX will broadcast the National League Championship series as well as the World Series.

World Series Game 7 (Open Thread)

Could it be Albert's last game with the Cardinals?

Yankees

— As you know, Brian Cashman and the Yankees have agreed to a new contract, for 3 years.

— According to Anthony McCarron of the NY Daily News, Nick Swisher will most likely be returning to the team next year. His option will definitely (as in 99%) be picked up. However, the Yanks could potentially trade Swisher for a #2 starter. This basically eliminates the Yankees from the Carlos Beltran-sweepstakes.

World Series

Well what is best for the MLB is happening tonight – Game 7. All the spotlight will be on this game.  Enjoy the game, and enjoy the weekend.

Game 6 of World Series Postponed

Game 6 of World Series Postponed

by Delia E.

Tonight’s Game 6 of the 2011 World Series between the Texas Rangers & the St. Louis Cardinals has been postponed due to inclement weather in St. Louis. The game will be played tomorrow October 27 at 8:05pm. The Texas Rangers have a 3-2 lead over the St. Louis Cardinals.

Thank you and have a good night.

World Series Game 5 (Open Thread)

The series is now tied at 2 games a piece. The Cardinals’ bats went silent last night.   I would find it hard to believe that they could go silent two games in a row.  We might be seeing a soon-to-be Yankee pitching tonight. Enjoy the game everyone.

World Series Game 4 (Open Thread)

Can he hit another homerun tonight?

Hello all.  I hope you all had an amazing weekend like i did.  Great time with great family and friends.  Tonight is Game 4 of the world series.  After all of those runs scored last night thanks to Albert Pujols, I would guess tonight could be a pitching duel.   Me personally– bring on the more runs.  Sit back and enjoy.

Open Thread | Evening Notes

A day off today, but Game 3 is tomorrow at 8:05 ET.

Good evening everyone. Hardly anything going on in the Yankee realm today, but here are some notes / links for this open thread.

— If you have MLB Network, tune in at 8pm ET. Bob Costas will be interviewing MLB commissioner, Bud Selig, in a 30 minute taped interview. It will cover: “Selig’s thoughts on the 2012 All-Star Game, expanding the use of instant replay, adding a Postseason Wild Card team in each league, and divisional realignment.” (Lohud)

— According to Wallace Matthews of ESPNNY, the Yankees will meet the Mets in the 2012 Spring Training. The last time the two teams met in Spring Training was in 1996.

— The World Series will recommence tomorrow in Game 3, in Texas. A quick fact: The winner of Game 3 has gone on to win 10 of the past 11 World Series’. (MLB)

— The Yankees like Yu Darvish quite a lot. They see him as a his powerful young arm, in addition to his ability to throw his secondary pitches for strikes as well. The overall consensus is that Darvish has been scouted by the Yanks’ over the past 3 years, with positive reports, but unidentifiable interest. (Marc Carig)

World Series Game 2 (Open Thread)

Game two tonight.  I have Texas winning this one. What do you think of tonight’s matchup?  Talk about whatever you want.  Enjoy the night.
